Earlier, Lauren Hogg learned a valuable history lesson when she suggested people participate in #armbandsforchange.
Now, the teenager is apologizing for what some have deemed “inappropriate.”
I am so sorry if I offended anyone with my former tweet, I had no intention of bringing any bad connotation to what we are trying to do which is using our past as in the Tinker vs Des Moine case to create a better future for us all.

Actor James Woods, however, gave her a bit of advice about her political advocacy:
I commend you for correcting an image that could be mistaken for a hurtful one. We all want a better future. I respect your voice, regardless of any differences we may have. Please just beware of political hacks trying to commandeer your genuine aspirations for a better world. https://t.co/yBgpg19bJn

James is such a class act.
Others had mixed reaction to what Hogg initially said.
This is why we don’t let highschoolers make American policy. They have no historical context & create unintended consequences.
Be a child. Experience life. Save the activism for when you start understanding how the world really works.

If you’re offending people that how you know your message is clear. Don’t stop.

Hold your head up, Lauren. Ignore those making noise on both sides. Focus on what you know to be right & you will drive change. The louder the noise, the more impact you are having! Well done!
