New York's Fraternal Order of Police on Wednesday announced it would no longer support Republican state senate candidate Julie Killian after a host of one of her fundraisers tweeted out attacks on two student survivors of the February mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school.

"The New York State Fraternal Order of Police will never support a candidate or campaign that condones the attack on child survivors of a school shooting," the union said in a statement.

Denise Ward, who hosted the fundraiser last week, criticized Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez. The students have spoken out about gun control since Nikolas Cruz killed 17 and injured 17 in February.

Ward in one tweet wrote: "Every time that idiotic Hogg person speaks I am compelled to do the opposite of whatever he's advocating, because it's so clear that he's nothing more than a tool & a drone."

Another retweet asked who the most annoying person was – Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, Hogg, or Jimmy Kimmel.
