11 sponsors drop Laura Ingraham's show

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.

Nearly a year ago, more than 50 advertisers yanked their spots from Bill O'Reilly's Fox News show after it emerged that O'Reilly, Fox and its parent company had paid $13 million to settle five sexual harassment lawsuits.

Hogg has become one of the most visible of the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, in which 17 people died.

The outburst by Laura Ingraham, 54, who pilloried David Hogg, 17, after his applications to four California colleges were rejected, prompted a mass exodus of advertisers. Hogg urged his Twitter followers to contact Ingraham's advertisers and several big name sponsors withdrew their advertising.

On Thursday, Ingraham tweeted an apology, saying she was sorry for any hurt or upset she had caused. The companies announcing that they are cancelling their ads are: Nutrish, the pet food line created by celebrity chef Rachael Ray, travel website TripAdvisor Inc, online home furnishings seller Wayfair Inc, the world's largest packaged food company, Nestle SA, online streaming service Hulu, travel website Expedia Group Inc and online personal shopping service Stitch Fix.




Hogg pointed out her comments are not isolated to him-foe example he attacked gay Dartmouth students and basketball superstar LeBron James. I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I️ in this fight.

"As always, he's welcome to return to the show anytime for a productive discussion".

I 100% agree an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough. It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.

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. In response to the news, Hogg tweeted Friday night, "Have some healthy reflections this Holy Week".

He told CNN: "I think it's great that corporate America is standing with me".
