Fox Host Laura Ingraham takes week off amid controversy

Laura Ingraham's advertisers are fleeing; Here's the list

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 opinion-show host Laura Ingraham apologized via Twitter on Thursday for making a snide comment about one of the Parkland shooting survivors and his college rejections. In response, Hogg tweeted a list of advertisers on Ingraham's show and called on followers to contact them.

The Fox News host's break is suspiciously timed, coinciding with an onslaught of more than a dozen advertisers pulling support for her show.

Hogg then wrote: "I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight".

"I would love to see her go", Hogg told the Daily News in a phone interview earlier Friday evening. The former Fox News host had announced, after a series of Times investigations revealed he'd paid around $50 million to settle sexual harassment lawsuits, that he was taking a "pre-planned" vacation of a few days.

Hogg, one of the leaders of the March for Our Lives movement and an outspoken gun control activist in the wake of the shooting at his high school, also called out Ingraham for her comments earlier this year about National Basketball Association stars LeBron James and Dwayne Wade.

"As always, he's welcome to return to the show anytime for a productive discussion", Ingraham said.

Ingraham made the announcement while signing off her show "the Ingraham Angle". "In our view, these statements focused on a high school student, cross the line of decency", the statement added.

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

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". "At any given time, someone is probably trying to boycott a Fox News show for something".
