On March 24, 2018, at the Washington D.C. March For Our Lives, Sam Fuentes, a survivor of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, took the stage to deliver a speech calling on lawmakers to enact stricter gun laws in the United States. Half way through her remarks, however, Fuentes paused and threw up. Unfazed, she told the crowd:
I just threw up on International Television, and it feels great!
She then continued her speech as Twitter blew up in support of her passion and poise even under such difficult circumstances. The moment even caught the online attention of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who tweeted a touching message to Fuentes!
