On March 24, David Hogg, a survivor of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, and a founder of the #NeverAgain movement, gave a stirring speech at the March For Our Lives in Washington D.C., a student-organized rally that drew over 200,000 attendees in the capital alone. The rally, as well as Hogg's speech, called for stricter gun control in the United States. Since they began advocating for gun control, many conservative pundits have taken to Twitter to denounce the shooting survivors in a plethora of ways intended to discredit and belittle them. One such conservative is actor Frank Stallone, brother of Sylvester Stallone.


*Warning: Stallone's tweet includes explicit language*

On March 31st, Stallone tweeted this insult, which has since been deleted:

The next morning, Stallone deleted the tweet and wrote an apology:

Stallone isn't the first to think twice after mocking a shooting victim.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham wrote this tweet, meant to belittle a shooting victim, on March 28.

After advertisers began withdrawing from her program, Ingraham apologized on Twitter:

The next day, she announced she would be taking a surprise, week-long Easter vacation from her show.

It didn't seem like Twitter accepted Stallone's apology...

While many conservatives would prefer to mock the victims of a school shooting, perhaps letting ourselves be influenced by their experiences would be more effective.
