The photo originally accompanied an Associated Press story in July about Hawaii preparing for a missile threat from North Korea. Some online news organizations used the AP photo in their coverage of the Jan. 13, 2018 false missile alert in Hawaii, leading some people to believe Wong was the person who sent the false alert. The AP did not use the image in coverage of the false alert. Wong says he has received threats and harassment because of the use of the image online. (AP Photo/Jennifer Sinco Kelleher, File)
