Fox News host Laura Ingraham takes week off after David Hogg comments

Laura Ingraham's advertisers are fleeing; Here's the list

Following the remarks, Hogg called out the advertisers on Ingraham's show, many of whom have since pulled their ads off the show in response.

Hogg pointed out her comments are not isolated to him-foe example he attacked gay Dartmouth students and basketball superstar LeBron James.

The controversy began on Wednesday, when Ingraham tweeted, "David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it". "We've got a great lineup of guest hosts to fill in for me".

Ingraham and other Fox News hosts have characterized Hogg and his classmates as frantic anti-gun left-wingers in the wake of the February 14 Parkland shooting that left 17 people dead.

Hogg also responded to the news of Ingraham's vacation by turning her own words against her.

"A bully is a bully and it's important that you stand up to them", he said.

"No "kid" thinks up mercilessly going after someone's advertisers because they called him 'whiny, '" she tweeted.

Hogg, one of the leaders of the March for Our Lives movement and an outspoken gun control activist in the wake of the shooting at his high school, also called out Ingraham for her comments earlier this year about National Basketball Association stars LeBron James and Dwayne Wade.

Hogg wrote on Twitter: "An apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough".

Ingraham is one of several conservatives who have criticized the student activists of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for calling for gun-control legislation. It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.

Bill O'Reilly took a "pre-planned vacation" last April amid advertiser cancellations after the New York Times detailed his settlements following harassment allegations from five women, totaling at least $13 million.
