Parkland shooting survivor rejects Laura Ingraham's apology for mocking tweet

Fox News host Laura Ingraham mocked David Hogg for his college rejections

After Ingraham mocked Hogg for a video in which he discussed not getting into the schools, including UCLA, the teen posted on Twitter asking people to call on advertisers to pull their support for the show.

Hogg tweeted a list of a dozen companies that advertise on "The Ingraham Angle" and urged his supporters to demand that they cancel their ads.

Fox News' Laura Ingraham announced Friday she would be taking a vacation the next week to celebrate Easter with her family as advertisers have dropped her show after she criticized a Parkland school shooting survivor.

According to Vox, the response was immediate and companies like Expedia, Hulu, Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, Nutrish Stitch Fix, TripAdvisor, and Wayfair proceeded to abandon Ingraham.

Hogg took aim at Ingraham's advertisers after she taunted him on Twitter on Wednesday, accusing him of whining about being rejected by four colleges to which he had applied. TripAdvisor was one of the first companies that said it would stop running ads, adding that it does not "condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster".

Hogg said on CNN: "I think it's great that corporate America is standing with me and the rest of my friends because when you come against any one of us, whether it be me or anybody else, you are coming against all of us".

"I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight", Hogg tweeted. She has her own television show.It's worthwhile to identify precisely which social norm Ingraham violated. "It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children".




The day prior, Laura tweeted and commented on an article about David Hogg not having been accepted to four of the colleges to which he applied to.

Hogg wasn't the only person who found Ingraham's tweets to be less than honest.

Laura Ingraham could not act quickly enough to recant her previous contempt for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student and had the gall to dress her groveling in the cloak of religion.

Ingraham issued an apology Thursday, but has still lost sponsors.

Ingraham is the host of "The Ingraham Angle", an evening news and opinion show on Fox News.

It goes as far back as college: As a student at Dartmouth in the 1980s, Ingraham became editor of the conservative Dartmouth Review. (New York Times)Any student should be proud of a 4.2 GPA -incl.

"We believe strongly in the values of our company, especially the one that says, 'We are better together, '" a spokesperson for Trip Advisor said in a statement to TheWrap. "They are sponsoring someone who will use the next tragedy to attack the most vulnerable", Robinson said.
