David Hogg

Hogg has responded to the theorists. "They've been there. I can verify that", Runcie told the newspaper.

Hogg, 17, and many of his classmates have been outspoken about the need for stricter gun laws since they witnessed the massacre of 17 students and staff members at their Florida high school last week.

After seeing his face appear, reappear and re-reappear, Hogg is having his identity called into question.

All over social media people are sharing a screenshot of a yearbook. Last summer, Hogg was interviewed by a CBS Los Angeles affiliate about an altercation involving his friend and a lifeguard.

David Hogg is under the spotlight. Here he is in our yearbook from 2015.

Baseless claims are being made, including that surviving students are actors.

The claim was quickly debunked.

It bubbled up from the darkest online corners then began to take off: conspiracy theories about Parkland students whove spent the past week on TV demanding action on the gun violence that killed 17 and reawakened a national debate. One of the tweets was a link to the site True Pundit, a far-right site that has published several false stories about the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting.

Hogg said it was "disturbing" that people would accuse him of not being a real high school student and that he isn't an actor "in any sense, way, shape or form".

Hogg's experience is similar to what happened after the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, that left 26 dead - majority young children.

What do you think of the conspiracy theory?

What did David Hogg say? We are KIDS who feared for our lives while someone shot up our school.

Hogg has been the target of a number of far-right conspiracy theories.

"I am so sorry that these people have lost their faith in America", he said.

A Florida shooting survivor has slammed Donald Trump Jr.as "disgusting" after the president's son liked a tweet suggesting the teenager was speaking out on gun control as a "cover" for his Federal Bureau of Investigation father.

Kelly was sacked later that day.

In some far-flung conspiracy quarters, the articulate, determined Florida high school students leading a gun-control movement are literally too good to be true. Marco Rubio of Florida publicly condemning those spreading the claims.

"I'm not a crisis actor", he told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Tuesday.

"On behalf of the entire Florida House, I sincerely apologize to the students targeted and again commend them for their courage through this unspeakable tragedy", Corcoran said.

That's what you would expect after being the most interviewed teen following the Parkland, Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas Highschool on February 14, 2017. "I do not want to take away the Constitutional rights of American citizens", he added.
