Ads pulled from Ingraham show after she mocked Parkland survivor

Laura Ingraham faces boycott call from Stoneman Douglas' David Hogg. Does that carry any weight?

The conflict between the teen and cable news host began on Wednesday when Ingraham tweeted a Daily Wire story that detailed colleges Hogg was rejected from, and mocked him for complaining about it.

In direct response to her tweet, Hogg, an advocate for gun-control policies, listed the 12 companies who sponsor Ingraham's show and asked his supporters to contact each of them and demand they boycott her show.

Nutrish, the pet food line created by celebrity chef Rachael Ray, travel website TripAdvisor Inc, online home furnishings seller Wayfair Inc, the world's largest packaged food company, Nestle SA, online streaming service Hulu, travel website Expedia Group Inc and online personal shopping service Stitch Fix all said they were canceling their advertisements.

Shortly after Ingraham's apology, Hogg tweeted that he would only accept it "if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight".

"I 100% agree an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough".

Ingraham mocked Hogg on Twitter for not getting into the colleges he applied to.




Johnson & Johnson also said in a Thursday statement that it had "pulled our advertising from Ms. Ingraham's show". I wonder what the fallout would be if one issued a split-the-difference statement saying that it thought Ingraham was boorish for taunting him over his college prospects but it also believes in forgiveness when remorse has been expressed, which it has in this case. Most are moving their ads to other programs on the Fox News schedule, according to a person familiar with those discussions. "It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children", Hogg said on Twitter.

Wayfair said "the decision of an adult to personally criticise a high school student who has lost his classmates in an unspeakable tragedy is not consistent with our values".

Hogg, who has been one of the most prominent voices in a student-led campaign against gun violence that emerged in the wake of the shooting, then went after her advertisers. As of Friday morning, seven advertisers had pulled out of Ingraham's show, Camerota said on "New Day".

She added that Hogg was "Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA.totally predictable given acceptance rates".

Ingraham and other Fox News hosts have characterized Hogg and his classmates as frantic anti-gun left-wingers in the wake of the February 14 Parkland shooting that left 17 people dead. It's unclear how much of an impact the advertiser exodus will have on Ingraham's program. "At any given time, someone is probably trying to boycott a Fox News show for something".
