David Hogg, a 17-year-old survivor from last week's mass shooting at a Florida high school, is now being criticized for his media appearances from some of President Donald Trump's far right supporters, Business Insider reports.

"Why would the child of an FBI agent be used as a pawn for anti-Trump rhetoric and anti-gun legislation?" Lucian Wintrich wrote on The Gateway Pundit. "Because the FBI is only looking to curb YOUR Constitutional rights and INCREASE their power. We've seen similar moves by them many times over. This is just another disgusting example of it."

"The kid who has been running his mouth about how Donald Trump and the GOP are teaming to help murder high school kids by upholding the Second Amendment is the son of an FBI agent," an unnamed author wrote on True Pundit. "David Hogg is a school shooting survivor in Florida. At least that is what the mainstream media has told us. We wouldn't be surprised by anything involving the FBI at this point."

Donald Trump Jr. also clicked the like button on two tweets promoting conspiracy theories about Hogg's father, an ex-FBI agent.

Chelsea Clinton called out Gateway Pundit, telling reporter Jim Hoft to "return to attacking me (or really any grownup) instead of the courageous #Parkland students?"

Hogg has made several TV appearances, including one on CNN where he said the rash of mass shootings was "unacceptable."

"You need to take some action and play a role," Hogg told D.C. lawmakers. "Work together, come over your politics and get something done."
