A fake viral image of Parkland survivor Emma Gonzalez has been making the rounds on Twitter.
Gonzalez is a bisexual teen who became one of the faces of the March For Our Lives movement. Recently fake images circulated of her ripping apart the U.S. Constitution, according to Gay Star News. The original photo depicted her tearing apart a shooting target in a photoshoot for Teen Vogue.
Justy a sample of what NRA supporters are doing to teenagers who survived a massacre (real picture on the right). pic.twitter.com/czX7IHD8ur— Don Moynihan (@donmoyn) March 25, 2018
“The pic going around of #EmmaGonzalez ripping the constitution is a photoshop of a Teen Vogue cover,” Twitter user susanelizabeth tweeted. “Stop being such gullible morons, right wingers.”
Gonzalez wrote an opinion piece in the Teen Vogue which bears the faces of her and others in the #NeverAgain movement. She made a case for the need for gun control and the reason why her and her classmates were pushed to become activists.
“In just a few weeks’ time, we, the youth of the United States, have built a new movement to denounce gun violence and call for safety in all of our communities,” she wrote. “And this is only the beginning.”
The origin of the hoax is unknown.
