Although none of these things have been proven, now he’s also being accused of being a 26-year-old felon who committed a crime in South Carolina. From Reddit’s r/conspiracy:
A David Guyton Hogg was arrested in Anderson, South Carolina, but that person Reddit conspiracists are touting bears little resemblance to the student at Parkland.
That loose resemblance was swiftly mocked by Hogg’s classmates, who laughed out loud at it.
@davidhogg111 is smart, funny, and diligent, but my favorite thing about him is undoubtedly that he’s actually a 26 year-old felon from California.

That also loops in another conspiracy that Hogg, because of a YouTube video, is from California. Hogg enjoyed his friend’s tweet.

Hogg’s father this week told Anderson Cooper that his son is not an FBI plant.
