Canadian Government Official Mocks Parkland Shooting Survivor. Twitter Unleashes Fury.

On Saturday, a Canadian government official mocked a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who survived last month's shooting, calling him "so fragile!"

Max Fawcett, an official with the Government of Alberta, responded to a tweet from student Kyle Kashuv, writing: "Cuckservatives are the best. So fragile!"

Fawcett's Twitter account linked to his personal website which included a link to his LinkedIn account. On his profile, Fawcett identifies himself as a "Senior Manager, Issues and Special Projects (DMO), Alberta Climate Change Office at Government of Alberta."

A review of the Government of Alberta's official website shows that a Max Fawcett works there under the same title that is listed on his LinkedIn account.

Fawcett's initial response was to claim that he didn't know that Kyle Kashuv was a Parkland student, tweeting: "Okay -- didn't realize that was a Parkland student. He's welcome to boycott any darn thing he likes."

A review of Fawcett's Twitter account indicates that he does, in fact, know who Kashuv is because he has retweeted tweets from other accounts that attacked him and listed he was a Parkland survivor:

Needless to say, Twitter exploded over Fawcett's demeaning tweet that used inflammatory language to mock the survivor of a school shooting:
