Parkland, Fla., shooting survivor Emma González took to Twitter Friday to urge Americans to call their senators to oppose Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

She used her platform of 1.6 million followers to argue that America “deserves more than a privileged white boy who’s spent his whole life over-drinking,” slamming the performance of President Trump’s second high court pick in a hearing the day before.

{mosads}González’s comments come after a heated hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday concerning Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a house party while in high schoolers in the early 1980s.

Kavanaugh forcefully denied the allegations, at times raising his voice and becoming emotional over senators’ questions.

González and some of her Parkland classmates have become visible advocates of gun control in the wake of February’s mass shooting, organizing nationwide marches and criticizing GOP politicians for taking donations from the National Rifle Association.
