UPDATE 3/30: More companies have been added. Contact information will be added as it becomes available.
A number of advertisers have pulled their ads from Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show after comments she made criticizing Parkland student David Hogg. Their contact information is below.
Ingraham criticized Hogg after he complained to TMZ that he was rejected by UCLA and a few other colleges he applied to. She pointed out that you cannot whine when things do not go your way, which triggered Hogg into starting a boycott against her show.
Complaining that Ingraham was cyberbullying him and his fellow Parkland activists, Hogg tweeted out a list of advertisers, and several have already bowed to pressure and pulled ads.
Wayfair was one of the companies to pull advertising, saying explicitly that Hogg should be immune from criticism because he lost classmates in the tragedy.
Miracle Ear also announced they were pulling advertising in a tweet.
As of this morning, we have removed The Ingraham Angle from our TV advertising plan. It may take a few days for this change to take effect.

A growing list of advertisers decided to cut ties with right-wing television host Laura Ingraham on Thursday after she tweeted insults about a survivor of the February school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Late Thursday afternoon, candy-maker Nestle was the latest company to sour on Ingraham. “We have no plans to buy ads on the show in the future,” a Nestle spokesperson told CNBC.
In a statement on Thursday, a spokesman for online travel website TripAdvisor said 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.
Earlier on Thursday, pet food company Nutrish said in a tweet that it is “in the process of removing our ads from Laura Ingraham’s program.”
And online travel site Expedia told CNBC it “no longer advertises on this show,” adding “we have pulled the advertising.”
Later on Thursday, online home goods company Wayfair told CNBC that it plans to stop advertising on Ingraham’s program over the tweet.
“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,” Wayfair’s head of public relations, Jane Carpenter, told CNBC.
“We do not plan to continue advertising on this particular program,” Carpenter said.
Ingraham is the host of “The Ingraham Angle,” an evening news and opinion show on Fox News.
