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.
