11 advertisers drop Laura Ingraham, while fans launch #IStandWithLaura

Fox News host Laura Ingraham is seeing a growing number of advertisers leave her show over a widely derided tweet in which she mocked Parkland survivor David Hogg.

Hogg called for a boycott of Ingraham's advertisers after she shared a story on Wednesday from conservative news site the Daily Wire on the teen's rejections from four University of California's campuses.

Ingraham apologized to Hogg on Thursday on Twitter, and said any high school student should be proud to earn a 4.2 GPA.

Ingraham tweeted that she thought she was the first to feature Hogg on her show after the shooting and added: 'He's welcome to come on my show anytime for a productive discussion'. The companies include Nutrish, Expedia, TripAdvisor, Nestle, Hulu, Wayfair, Stitch Fix, Office Depot and Liberty Mutual.

Ingraham apologized Thursday on Twitter, saying: 'On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the courageous victims of Parkland'.

For his part, Hogg appeared on CNN and refused to accept Ingraham's apology, noting that the gesture was just a reaction to losing her advertisers.

"We're changing the world", he said.

Fox News is working with advertisers, says a person familiar with the network's ad sales strategy, accommodating sponsors who wish to move commercials elsewhere, but also maintaining a long-term view about the program and its connection with Madison Avenue.

Laura Ingraham Is Losing Advertisers After Parkland's David Hogg Launches A Boycott Of Her Fox News Program

In the article, she called association "cheerleaders for latent campus sodomites" and later defended the outings as a "freedom of the press issue".

"Soooo @IngrahamAnglewhat are your biggest advertisers". Coffee company Keurig initially said it was pulling ads from Hannity's show, only to face social media backlash from Hannity's supporters, who posted videos on Twitter of themselves smashing Keurig machines.

"#ShutUpAndBeObjective", Hogg tweeted later Thursday, playing off Ingraham's previous suggestion that LeBron James should "shut up and dribble" after James criticized President Donald Trump.

"We do not. condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster", TripAdvisor said in a statement.

Ingraham apologized Thursday in a tweet that also commended Hogg for his 4.2 GPA. It's unclear how much of an impact the advertiser exodus will have on Ingraham's program.

"The decision of an adult to personally criticize a high school student who has lost his classmates in an unspeakable tragedy is not consistent with our values", Wayfair said in a statement yesterday.

"We are in the process of removing our ads from Laura Ingraham's program", Nutrish, the pet food company of celebrity cook Rachael Ray, said via Twitter.
