TV host apologizes to Parkland student

Laura Ingraham's advertisers are fleeing; Here's the list

Laura Ingraham, Facing Boycott, Apologizes for Taunting Parkland Survivor David Hogg

Hogg said Ingraham's attacks were "really, really stupid", adding that the subsequent backlash shows that people are fed up with her and the scourge of gun violence.

Ingraham faced a wave of advertisers pulling their spots from her show following the Wednesday tweet.

The move followed intense criticism of the conservative host after she mocked a survivor of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

Ingraham wrote that Hogg had been "Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it". The Fox host said she will be spending the Easter break with her kids and The Ingraham Angle will be manned by a slate of guest hosts while she is out... Hogg urged his Twitter followers to contact Ingraham's advertisers and several big name sponsors withdrew their advertising.

Since then, roughly a dozen companies have announced plans to pull their commercials from her show, even despite an apology from Ingraham on Thursday. At least seven sponsors have pulled backing from Ingraham's show, including Hulu, Trip-Advisor and Nutrish.

Police Officer Who Killed Alton Sterling Has Been Fired
Michael Adams, a lawyer for the Sterling family, said one family member received a notification about the release of the videos. He describes the scene as Salamoni coming for Sterling like "a pit bull [that] immediately escalated the entire situation".

Although Ingraham later apologized "for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the courageous victims of Parkland", that wasn't enough for Hogg, who called for a continued boycott until the Fox News host "denounce [s] the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight".

Ingraham apologized the next day, explaining that "any student should be proud of a 4.2 GPA". I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I️ in this fight.

Hogg also responded to the news of Ingraham's vacation by turning her own words against her. It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.

Travel website TripAdvisor said it would stop advertising on Ingraham's show, saying it does not "condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster".

- Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) March 29, 2018I 100% agree an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough. "Have some healthy reflections this Holy Week", he tweeted. I think now with advertisers standing with us, we can accomplish anything.
