Parkland survivor David Hogg has become a household name for his biting attacks and boisterous rhetoric, and now one of his classmates is calling him out for it.
Patrick Petty lost his 14-year-old sister, Alaina, in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Now he’s using the platform he never wished to have to advocate for bipartisan reform.
He’s also calling out Hogg, who wants an apology from Fox News host Laura Ingraham for poking fun at his struggle to get into a college, for his “nasty and vile” rhetoric:
I find it funny that @davidhogg111 wants people to show him love while being nasty and vile to others. Worse than that, he and his friends have not said a word to me since the shooting, considering my sister died on 2/14 don’t you think it would’ve been loving to reach out to me? https://t.co/8Gn3UsatjI

Petty is also asking student activist Emma Gonzalez to “please stop using my sister’s name to push your agenda.”
Hogg made headlines in late March when he said the NRA and lawmakers who support the gun-lobbying group “could have blood from children splattered all over their faces and they wouldn’t take action because they all still see those dollar signs.”
He also said children need to take over politics because their parents “don’t know how to use a f**king democracy.”
