The father of a child who died during the Sandy Hook school shooting has been given a full facial disguise before being interviewed on television, to protect him from being identified by crazed conspiracy theorists.
Lenny Pozner’s son Noah, six, was the youngest victim of the December 14, 2012 massacre of 20 children and six staff.
Since very early on in the aftermath, Pozner was singled out by conspiracy theorists claiming that the murders never happened, and that it was all part of a Barack Obama-led plot to rid the country of guns.
‘I was being attacked for the memory of my son. My son’s very short life was being attacked, and I just wasn’t going to stand for that,’ said Pozner, appearing heavily disguised on 60 Minutes, in a segment discussing a campaign to have social media companies held responsible for the content they allow online.
