This is what happens when you mess with David Hogg

This is what happens when you mess with David Hogg

The backlash against Laura Ingraham following comments she made about Parkland student David Hogg is not dying down, with the Fox News host coming under fire on both CNN and MSNBC on Friday.

In response to Laura's tweet, David tweeted a list of sponsors for her show The Ingraham Angle, telling followers to choose a number and pay a phone call to one of them to suggest that they un-endorse her.

Ingraham later apologized for the tweet, stating she was sorry for the hurt her tweet caused Hogg or "any of the courageous victims of Parkland, only to be rebuffed by the high school student". After launching a tweet that mildly mocked young Hogg for not being accepted to certain colleges, Rapaport went on an unhinged tirade that dwarfed Ingraham's angle (see what I did there?) by comparison.

Since Wednesday night, at least 14 advertisers have stopped advertising on the program, including Liberty Mutual, Office Depot, Jenny Craig, Atlantis Paradise Island, Stitch Fix, Johnson & Johnson, Hulu, Nestle, Expedia, Wayfair, Trip Advisor, Ruby Tuesday, Nutrish, and Global investment group Principal.

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".

Ingraham, who hosts one of Fox News's highest-rated talk shows, leaves in the midst of controversy and boycotts.

Hogg rejected her apology, however, calling it "an effort just to save your advertisers".

"We also believe Americans can disagree while still being agreeable, and that the free exchange of ideas within a community, in a peaceful manner, is the cornerstone of our democracy", the company said through a spokesman.

The Hubble Space Telescope's Advanced Camera for Surveys acquired this image, which is via NASA , ESA, and P. van Dokkum, Yale. It doesn't fit the characteristics of a spiral galaxy, which typically have dense, central regions, spiral arms, and a disk.

Supporters of Ingraham took to social media to say they would, in turn, now boycott companies that canceled their ad buys. Hogg has faced intense criticism from right-wing conservatives and gun advocates who have falsely called him a crisis actor after the Valentine's Day shooting in Parkland that killed 17.

"As a company, we support open dialogue and debate on issues".

Soooo @IngrahamAngle what are your biggest advertisers ...

Ingraham on her show Friday night described the vacation as a pre-planned break with her children for the Easter holiday.

Added TripAdvisor, in part, per CNBC: "In our view, these statements focused on a high school student cross the line of decency".

What did Laura Ingraham say about David Hogg? It's unclear how much of an impact the advertiser exodus will have on Ingraham's program.

This after Rachel Ray's Nutrish pulled its ads over Ingraham's remarks about the 17-year old survivor of this country's worst mass shooting in a high school.
