Fox News host Laura Ingraham and Parkland student and gun control activist David Hogg have been involved in a national feud after Ingraham shared a story of Hogg being rejected by several colleges despite his high GPA. Thousands of people replied to the tweet — including Hogg, who organized a boycott of Ingraham’s largest advertisers.
Advertisers including Jenny Craig, Nutrish, Hulu, TripAdvisor, Wayfair, Expedia, Nestlé, Johnson & Johnson, and Office Depot all pulled out of their partnerships with Ingraham due to the pressure from Hogg and his followers.
Fox News is standing with Laura Ingraham as she becomes the latest target of a decades-old campaign by Media Matters and others to deplatform conservative media figures and to destroy Fox News:
“We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts. We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.”
Mike Lindell, the CEO and founder of MyPillow, took to Twitter on Monday and announced that he has no intention of pulling his ads from Ingraham’s show after the call to boycott.He tweeted on Monday that he wouldn’t be one of the many advertisers pulling TV spots from Laura Ingraham’s show, after its host mocked Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg for getting rejected from several California colleges.
