They helped organize this weekend’s March for Change which took place all over the world.
The students have also become online targets as well.
Shortly after the shooting, YouTube removed a conspiracy video which claimed that one of the students, David Hogg, was a “crisis actor” who was paid to travel to shooting sites to argue for stricter gun control laws.

Students were also criticized for smiling on Twitter by actor James Woods.
He captioned it sarcastically: “Grief wears many faces…”

Gonzalez was also subject of another dubious meme over the weekend.
Over the weekend, a video of Gonzalez began to be shared on Twitter of the 17-year-old ripping up the U.S. Constitution.
The offending video was actually doctored from a Teen Vogue video in which she tears up a gun-range target.
Actor Adam Baldwin is one of many claiming “satire” in sharing the fake video.
Eagles of Death Metal singer Jesse Hughes, whose band was playing during the Bataclan attack in Paris, also shared the video on Instagram, the Guardian reports. He labelled the March for Our Lives protesters as “vile abusers of the dead.”
He has since deleted the post.
