Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Friday echoed a familiar right-wing talking point about the Parkland school shooting survivors, criticizing them for talking—presumably disrespectfully—“to and about adults.”

Ingraham was reacting to a Thursday tweet by Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School junior Sarah Chadwick suggesting, “WE should change the names of AR-15 to ‘Marco Rubio’ because they are so easy to buy.”

In classic “get off my lawn” fashion, Ingraham suggested Chadwick’s quip about Rubio was inappropriate because he’s an “adult.”

“HOW TEENS SPEAK TO AND ABT [sic] ADULTS,” Ingraham tweeted Friday, complaining that “sophomore” Chadwick was using language unbecoming of a young woman.

Chadwick hit back on Twitter, prompting others to rally around the Parkland survivor. Read the satisfying reactions below:
