Twitter user MAGAfrank2 has been suspended from the social media platform after sharing a disturbing 41-second video issuing a death threat to Parkland massacre survivor David Hogg.
In the video, YouTuber Frank Espinoza sent a chilling message to the 18-year-old student turned gun violence activist: “I got a message for David Hogg the b**ch at CNN- You wanna push society towards a civil war? You wanna make us all fight? You wanna know what a civil war looks like? I’m going to show you what a civil war’s gonna look like.”
After issuing his verbal warning, the video shows Espinoza firing several rounds into a cardboard cutout of Hogg’s head.
Huffington Post reporter Yashar Ali shared a copy of the now-deleted video:
