Allman posted the apparent threat on Twitter on March 26, saying he was “hanging out getting ready to ram a hot poker up David Hogg’s ass tomorrow.”
Hogg responded to the incident in a tweet Monday, saying, "I wish they would actually focus on what matters here like the 4 kids shot in #LibertyCity recently or simply the people that die across America everyday due of gun violence."
Hogg has been targeted by conspiracy theorists, who claimed he was a “crisis actor,” as well as Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who said he “whine[d]” about being rejected from four colleges.
Ingraham later apologized after Hogg asked advertisers to pull their ads from her show.
