Laura Ingraham’s Attack On Parkland Shooting Survivor David Hogg Just Backfired Bigly

Laura Ingraham thought it would be funny to shitpost about one of the Parkland shooting survivors after he wasn’t accepted by four colleges he had applied to even though he has a 4.2 GPA. David Hogg responded by posting a list of her top advertisers on Twitter to launch a boycott.

The first of likely many advertisers responded by saying the company is pulling its sponsorship of Laura Ingraham’s program.

“We are in the process of removing our ads from Laura Ingraham’s program,” Rachael Ray’s pet food brand Nutrish tweeted to Hogg.

While Trump supporters on Twitter were upset over the company’s decision, the majority of the responses showed support over removing the ads.

We have two dogs and three cats. We will be looking into buying products from Nutrish, a company that obviously wants to be on the right side of the moral compass.

The attacks on the surviving students have been appalling from so-called ‘pro-life’ conservatives. A word of advice for Laura Ingraham: Don’t start no shit and there won’t be no shit, k?

Update:

Online travel website TripAdvisor said it will stop advertising on Ingraham’s television show, stating that the company “does not “condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster.”

“In our view, these statements focused on a high school student, cross the line of decency. As such, we have made a decision to stop advertising on that program,” the spokesperson said.

Online home goods company Wayfair told CNBC that it plans to stop advertising on Ingraham’s program over her attack.

“As a company, we support open dialogue and debate on issues. However, 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,” said Wayfair’s head of public relations, Jane Carpenter.

“We do not plan to continue advertising on this particular program,” Carpenter added.
