As Ingraham leaves for vacation, more than a dozen advertisers have now dropped her show.

Ingraham apologized the next day, explaining that "any student should be proud of a 4.2 GPA".

Ingraham wrote that Hogg had been "Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it".

"I'll be off next week for Easter break with my kids, but fear not, we've got a great line-up of guests hosts to fill in for me", Ingraham said at the end of her Friday show.

Ingraham announced on Friday night's broadcast that the break was a "pre-planned" vacation with her family for the Easter holiday.

"A bully is a bully and it's important that you stand up to them", he said.

He posted the names of her top advertisers on Twitter and urged his almost 700,000 followers to call those companies. After Sean Hannity supported Alabama judge Roy Moore in his campaign for the USA senate, five companies removed their ads, including Keurig.




Ingraham's apology on Thursday may have come too late for the Parkland teenagers - Hogg's sister quickly responded to her tweet, accusing her of only apologizing after losing advertisers. However, Hogg did not accept and continued to apply pressure.

Eleven companies so far have pulled their ads after a pushback by Parkland student David Hogg, 17, who called for a boycott of her advertisers.

"She's tried calling out people at Dartmouth University for their sexual orientation and she told Lebron James to shut up and dribble", Hogg said on CNN. It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.

Hogg has become one of the most visible of the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, in which 17 people died.

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

Ingraham apologized, but Hogg blasted it as an insincere "effort just to save your advertisers".

The Ingraham Angle is one of the highest-rated cable news programs on television.
