Laura Ingraham Takes Vacation From Fox News as Advertisers Flee

Laura Ingraham Takes Vacation From Fox News as Advertisers Flee

In this combination photo, Fox News personality Laura Ingraham speaks at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland on July 20, 2016, left, and David Hogg, a student survivor from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., speaks at a rally for common sense gun legislation in Livingston, N.J. on February 25, 2018.

Fox News show host Laura Ingraham announced on her show late Friday that she is taking next week off, after nearly a dozen advertisers dropped her show after the conservative pundit mocked a teenage survivor of the Florida school massacre on Twitter.

Ingraham first came under fire after she mocked Hogg - a Parkland shooting survivor who's become one the school's most outspoken activists - for failing to get accepted to his college choices with his 4.1 GPA.

The 17-year-old high school student, working in tandem with George Soros-backed Media Matters, called for a boycott after Ingraham's tweet, sharing a list of her main advertisers online.

The 14 advertisers that have dropped Ingraham's show since Wednesday include: Office Depot, Liberty Mutual, Jenny Craig, Nutrish, Atlantis Paradise Island, Stitch Fix, Global investment group Principal, Johnson & Johnson, Hulu, Expedia, Nestle, Wayfair, Trip Advisor, and Ruby Tuesday.

Hogg tweeted a list of a dozen companies that advertise on "The Ingraham Angle" and urged his supporters to demand that they cancel their ads. "I think it's really disgusting, the fact that she tried promoting her show after apologizing to me".

On MSNBC's the Morning Joe the panel agreed that the decision to mock Hogg over a video in which he detailed the schools which did not accept him was in poor taste and very poorly timed.

Eleven companies so far have pulled their ads after a pushback by Parkland student David Hogg, 17, who called for a boycott of her advertisers. After Ingraham announced her vacation, Hogg tweeted "have some healthy reflections this Holy Week".

He continued: 'When people try to distract like what Laura is trying to do from what the real is issue is, gun violence in America, it's not only is sad but wrong. "Asking for a friend", he wrote with the hashtag #BoycottIngramAdverts.
