The Companies Who Hogg Bullied Into Pull Ads From Ingraham’s Show Just Got a Brutal Wakeup Call

Kirsters Baish| Poster boy for the anti-gun movement David Hogg recently mentioned that he had been rejected from numerous colleges that he had applied to. We all know that getting into college it hard, which is why it was obvious that Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s comment about Hogg being rejected from multiple schools was just a joke. He took it all way too seriously, calling for a boycott of Ingraham’s show and all of the companies who continue to run ads on her show.

CBS News reported that advertisers began pulling their ads from The Ingraham Angle and continue to as Ingraham is on her week-long break. Ingraham announced on Friday that she would be taking a week-long break following Easter weekend. It was said by a Fox News spokesperson that her vacation had been planned previously.

CBS also reported:

The timing echoed events of April 2017 when, embroiled in an advertiser boycott, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly announced he would be taking vacation for Easter. He was later fired by the network.

At least 15 companies so far have pulled their ads from Ingraham’s Fox News program after she feuded with a survivor of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting over Twitter. Those include Bayer; Ruby Tuesday; Liberty Mutual Insurance; The Atlantis Paradise Island resort; Office Depot; Jenny Craig; Hulu; Nutrish; TripAdvisor; Expedia; Wayfair; Stitch Fix; Nestlé; Johnson & Johnson and Miracle-Ear.

As we found out earlier this week, Fox News network won’t be letting Laura go, and she has their full support.

It is also looking like companies who pulled their ads from the show are actually finding themselves in boiling hot water as counter protesters begin to boycott their products and services.

From Conservative Tribune:

Conservative activists on social media have launched a counterboycott against companies that pulled their advertising from Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle” because of the conservative host’s mockery of Hogg via a Twitter post.

In Facebook videos and Twitter posts, conservatives are rallying for a counterboycott of companies that pulled their advertising from Ingraham’s show.

This wasn’t Hogg’s intention, obviously. He’s so deluded by the mainstream media and the rest of liberal America that he truly believes that he is being bullied, all the while he and his fellow protesters are accusing innocent NRA members of being “child murderers.”

Things aren’t going so well for Hogg and his followers, but that’s what happens when you pretend you’re a politician.

If you’re wondering how the NRA is doing since this whole thing started, they’re doing just fine.

From The Hill:

The National Rifle Association (NRA) benefitted from a spike in donations following the deadly shooting last month at a Parkland, Fla., high school.

Federal Election Commission filings showed the organization’s Political Victory Fund garnered slightly less than $248,000 in donations in January. In February, that figure more than tripled to $779,062.

The February totals show a sharp increase in the same month when the NRA faced intense criticism following the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which left 17 people dead.
