David Hogg Says He Won't Accept Ingraham's Apology, Calls Her a 'Bully'

Screen Shot 2018 03 30

Laura Ingraham closed out her Fox News show Friday night by cheerily announcing that she planned to take next week off to spend Easter break with her kids - but to "fear not", because she had a great lineup of guests hosts on deck.

"A bully is a bully and it's important to stand up to them", Hogg said, before calling on the Fox News host to also apologize to the countless men and women she publicly derided over the years.

Hogg responded to Ingraham's original comments by tweeting a list of her advertisers and urging his followers to contact them. Office Depot, Jenny Craig, Hulu, Nutrish, TripAdvisor, Expedia, Wayfair, StitchFix, Nestlé and Johnson & Johnson said they would pull ads from the show.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham said Friday she will take a week's vacation following an exodus of advertisers from her show after she insulted a Florida shooting survivor's grades.

Hogg wrote on Twitter that an apology just to mollify advertisers was insufficient.

Hogg is a survivor of the February 14 mass shooting that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in the Parkland suburb of Fort Lauderdale.

"She only apologized after we went after advertisers", he told The New York Times in an interview Thursday.

"As always, he's welcome to return to the show anytime for a productive discussion". It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.

He said the apology was "expected" after advertisers dropped out, but that it didn't mean much.

Ingraham has since apologized, but Hogg refused to accept. "In our view, these statements focused on a high school student cross the line of decency". Coffee company Keurig initially said it was pulling ads from Hannity's show, only to face social media backlash from Hannity's supporters, who posted videos on Twitter of themselves smashing Keurig machines. "At any given time, someone is probably trying to boycott a Fox News show for something".

The online home-goods retailer told HuffPost, "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".
