Parkland shooting survivor and pro-gun control activist David Hogg is now leading a boycott campaign against Fox News host Laura Ingraham after she knocked him for complaining about colleges that rejected his applications.
“David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it,” Ingraham wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning, linking a Daily Wire article. Her parenthetical: “Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.”
Ingraham’s tweet sparked a backlash in the media. Hogg responded by targeting Ingraham’s advertisers.
Hogg tweeted out a list of Ingraham’s 12 biggest advertisers and called on his followers to pressure the companies into boycotting Ingraham’s show over her tweet.
Hogg previously called for a boycott of companies tied to the NRA after the shooting at his school left 17 people dead. The shooting followed a series of governmental failures.
Boycotts have become liberal activists’ preferred method of silencing right-of-center voices in the media.
Liberal groups have repeatedly targeted Fox News host Sean Hannity, with limited success.
*Update: FOX News Channel’s Laura Ingraham has apologized and offered the following statement:
“Any student should be proud of a 4.2 GPA —including David Hogg. On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland. For the record, I believe my show was the first to feature David immediately after that horrific shooting. And as always, he’s welcome to come on my show anytime for a productive discussion.”
