Survivors Of FL School Shooting To Trump: ‘Unless You Are Going To Do Something…Shut The F–k Up’




Several students who survived the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school Wednesday took to social media to criticize President Trump, GOP leaders and right-wing media personalities for their response to the shooting, with one student telling Trump “unless you are going to do something about gun control so no one else experiences what my school has, shut the f–k up.”

Trump suggested on Thursday that the suspected shooter was “mentally disturbed,” calling out the neighbors and classmates for not reporting him enough to authorities while making no mention of potential gun control measures to prevent another senseless tragedy.

Some students at the school responded with strong criticism on social media:




The Hill added:

Nikolas Cruz, 19, was charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder Thursday morning after authorities said he opened fire in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, killing at least 17 people and injuring more than a dozen others.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that Cruz legally purchased the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle he allegedly used in the shooting. Cruz had been kicked out of the school and flagged as a threat.

The students also responded to conservative media personality and Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren, who pushed back on calls for gun control after the shooting by writing that it “isn’t about a gun it’s about another lunatic.”

“I was hiding a closet for 2 hours,” one student responded on Twitter. “It was about guns.”
