Fox News host apologises for criticism of U.S. school shooting survivor

Laura Ingraham

Those calls have been met with equally passionate responses by Trump supporters who say they are determined to use their buying power to stand with the president and his family.

It seems the media saturation of Hogg and his fellow liberal classmates from the Florida high school where last month's mass shooting left 17 people dead, has worn out its welcome.

"My seat-mate son drew me an Easter present preflight", her accompanying tweet said.

Ingraham wrote that Hogg had been "Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it".

Ingraham said on her show that the time off was due to the Easter break, and Fox News later told The New York Times that it was a "preplanned vacation with her kids".

Hogg - who has amassed more than 650,000 Twitter followers himself - responded by tweeting a list of 12 companies that he said were sponsors of Ingraham's show, The Ingraham Angle.

The senior student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas described Ingraham's apology as disgusting, saying "she basically tried promoting her show after apologizing to me". "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". At least seven sponsors have pulled backing from Ingraham's show, including Hulu, Trip-Advisor and Nutrish.

"Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates", she added. However, Hogg did not accept and continued to apply pressure.

"We'd like to confirm that we are no longer advertising on Laura Ingraham's show and are monitoring all of our ad placements carefully", the company said.

I 100% agree an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough.

"She only apologized after one-third of her advertisers dropped out", Hogg said. It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.

Hogg was referring to a comment Ingraham made in February, in which she criticized the National Basketball Association player for "talking politics" in interviews.

Upon reading the news that Ingraham would be taking time off, Hogg tweeted, "Have some healthy reflections this Holy Week". I think now with advertisers standing with us, we can accomplish anything.
