David Hogg Might Have Brought Down Humpy Dumpy Laura Ingraham With Just One Tweet









At least 11 companies have pulled their advertising from Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s weeknight show The Ingraham Angle after she mocked Parkland shooting survivor and gun reform activist David Hogg for being rejected by several colleges.
Ingraham, who has a history of anti-gay, anti-immigrant and anti-feminist comments, started the Twitter feud by tweeting out a story in the conservative Daily Wire that talked about Hogg being rejected by UCLA and other universities despite having an estimated 4.1 GPA.

Hogg responded by encouraging his nearly 674,000 Twitter followers to contact Ingraham’s advertisers and threaten a boycott.

In response, Office Depot, Hulu, Nestle, Johnson & Johnson, Jenny Craig, Stitch Fix, Wayfair, Expedia, TripAdvisor, Paradise Island Resort, and Nutrish, a pet food brand, are all pulling adverts, reports The Hill.
In statements that trickled in throughout Thursday and Friday, the companies denounced Ingraham’s mocking of Hogg, with many characterizing her comments about someone who survived a mass shooting as “inappropriate.”
After advertisers began pulling their support, Ingraham took to Twitter to apologize to Hogg. “On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland,” Ingraham wrote. “For the record, I believe my show was the first to feature David immediately after that horrific shooting and even noted how ‘poised’ he was given the tragedy. As always, he’s welcome to return to the show anytime for a productive discussion.”
Hogg later appeared on NBC News and said he did not accept Ingraham’s apology. He also took to Twitter to demand that Ingraham apologizes for Fox News’ treatment of those Parkland students who have advocated for gun reform measures.
“I 100% agree to an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough,” Hogg tweeted in response to another user’s criticism of Ingraham. “I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight. It’s time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.”
With just one tweet aimed at Ingraham’s advertisers, Hogg may have seriously endangered one of Fox News’ biggest names — and a known opponent of LGBTQ rights.
Ingraham has a history of making anti-LGBTQ statements and has been criticized for her rhetoric over the years. She has repeatedly referred to providing transition-related health care to transgender youth as “child abuse.” She has also claimed that greater advances in LGBTQ rights might lead to the legalization of incest and the eventual criminalization of anti-LGBTQ religious beliefs, putting anti-gay Catholics like herself at risk of prosecution.
Ingraham has particularly been outspoken about transgender people’s ability to use public restrooms, saying she can’t allow her daughter to use them since transgender people might be present. She has also advised listeners to wear adult diapers in order to avoid trans-inclusive restrooms and suggested that the parents of an 8-year-old transgender student should be “kind of embarrassed” about seeking fair accommodations at school.
Perhaps most troubling was Ingraham’s work as the first female editor of the conservative Dartmouth Review as a college student. During that time, Ingraham secretly sent a reporter with a tape recorder to a campus gay students association meeting, according to Rory O’Connor and Aaron Cutler’s book Shock Jocks. She then used the tape to out the students in print, calling them “cheerleaders for latent campus sodomites,” and sent tapes of the meetings to the students’ parents. She later apologized for her actions.
GLAAD denounced Ingraham’s statements about Hogg, while also calling attention to her past anti-LGBTQ actions.
“Laura Ingraham’s cowardly, public bullying of the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is consistent with her vile views including her ongoing targeting of the LGBTQ community,” Sarah Kate Ellis, president, and CEO of GLAAD, said in a statement. “From hateful remarks about marriage equality and the transgender community to attacking youth activists and the communities we lock arms with, advertisers must question if they want to be associated with her fringe opinions.”

David Hogg (Parkland Survivor) Rejects Fox News and Ingrahams' Shallow Apology After Advertisers Began Dropping Her as Damaged Goods





Laura Ingraham's giving in to her inner feelings and salutes at the RNC

 A student survivor of a Florida high school shooting has brushed aside a Fox News host's apology after she mocked his university rejections.
Ten companies have said they are pulling ads from Laura Ingraham's programme after 17-year-old David Hogg tweeted a call for a boycott.
On Wednesday, she accused the activist of whining after he said four colleges had declined his applications.
He has been a target of online abuse since last month's attack in Parkland. 
Keeping up the pressure on Friday, David told the New York Daily News: "I would love to see her go."
He tweeted on Thursday night: "I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and me in this fight. 
"It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children." 
The teenage activist - who has amassed more than 600,000 Twitter followers since last month's attack - told CNN on Thursday: "She's only apologizing after a third of her advertisers pulled out.
"I think it's great that corporate America is standing with me and the rest of my friends."  
He also rejected her invitation to appear on her show and discuss his gun control campaign.
"I think it's really disgusting, the fact that she basically tried promoting her show after apologizing to me," he told CNN.
TripAdvisor, Expedia, Hulu, Johnson & Johnson, Office Depot, Jenny Craig, Wayfair, Stich Fix, Nestlé, and Nutrish have said they will withdraw commercials from The Ingraham Angle.
On Thursday night's show, Ms. Ingraham ignored the boycott.

Soooo @IngrahamAngle what are your biggest advertisers ... Asking for a friend.
He also rejected her invitation to appear on her show and discuss his gun control campaign.

TripAdvisor, Expedia, Hulu, Johnson & Johnson, Office Depot, Jenny Craig, Wayfair, Stich Fix, Nestlé, and Nutrish announced they would withdraw commercials from the presenter's show, The Ingraham Angle.
On her Thursday night show, Ms. Ingraham ignored the boycott.
Republican campaign strategist Steve Schmidt praised David Hogg as fearless. 
"This kid's not scared," he said. "He's not scared of the NRA. He's not intimidated and scared by Laura Ingraham."
The furor touched off on Wednesday when Ms. Ingraham posted on Twitter: "David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it."
David had mentioned to celebrity gossip website TMZ a day earlier that he had been turned away from four colleges in the University of California system.
A day later - as advertisers joined a boycott - the Fox presenter struck a conciliatory tone by praising David's exam grades.
"On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland," she said.
But a TripAdvisor spokesperson said Ms. Ingraham's original comments "cross the line of decency". 
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". 
"Maybe that's what happens after you've been down range of an AR-15 that kills your classmates and comes close to killing you," Mr. Schmidt told MSNBC, referring to the type of semi-automatic rifle used in the 14 February attack that claimed 17 lives. 
"You lose all fear. Because this kid's not scared. He's not scared of the NRA. He's not intimidated and scared by Laura Ingraham."
