Laura Ingraham Apologizes As Advertisers Bail Over Mockery Of Parkland Survivor

"(Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA.totally predictable given acceptance rates)".

Nestle, Wayfair, Expedia, Nutrish and TripAdvisor have left the show, according to reports. Hogg has more than 600,000 Twitter followers.

Later Thursday, on-line residence products business Wayfair informed CNBC that it intends to quit marketing on Ingraham's program over the tweet.

Ingraham has already gone on damage control, apologizing for "any upset or hurt my tweet caused (Hogg) or any of the courageous victims of Parkland".

Ms. Ingraham's remarks went too far for TripAdvisor, which said it planned to stop advertising on the show and that it did not "condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster". Hogg and several of his fellow Parkland students have become vocal advocates for gun control after the February 14 massacre that killed 17 people and wounded more than a dozen. He is demanding advertisers boycott Ingraham's show for her infantile mocking of a student who survived one of the deadliest school shootings in American history.

Ingraham, a staunchly pro-Trump commentator, came under fire on Wednesday, when she tweeted out a story from the right-wing website Daily Wire about Hogg's rejection from four different colleges.

Kylie Jenner May or May Not Have Dyed Her Hair
Since the baby's birth, Kylie Jenner has been far more open about sharing her life with Stormi. As always, CinemaBlend will keep you posted if there are any developments on the baby front.

She took to Twitter to apologize, but did so she said only "in the spirit of Holy Week", which apparently means if it weren't she wouldn't have.

Pick a number at random, Hogg suggested, and contact the company next to it.

Laura Ingraham, 54, a Republican, is a CT native.

He then tweeted a list of Ingraham's advertisers.

"We believe strongly in the values of our company, especially the one that says, "We are better together".

Boycotting Ingraham and all those that ally with her isn't going to do any more good than attempting to ban assault weapons when the people marching for the cause don't even know the difference between a pellet gun and an assault rifle.

Ingraham added that she believed her show was the first to feature Hogg immediately after the deadly high-school shooting on February 14, and complimented how "poised" he was.
