“Never Again” representative David Hogg told former CIA operative Anderson Cooper he’s not a crisis actor, as numerous conspiracy theories swirl online.

“I’m not a crisis actor,” Hogg said on CNN’s AC360 Tuesday, accompanied by his father, who’s retired FBI. “I’m someone who had to witness this and live through this and I continue to be having to do that.”

“I’m not acting on anybody’s behalf,” he added.

Hogg’s credibility was thrown into question after a video surfaced of him giving an interview with CBS six months ago on a story unrelated to last week’s school shooting.

The student, who works at the school paper, also interviewed school shooting survivors hiding in a closet as the massacre was unfolding at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
