HISSY FIT! Parkland Student Launches Laura Ingraham Boycott After She Called Him Out (VIDEO)


David Hogg

Parkland student activist David Hogg is calling for a boycott of Fox News’ Laura Ingraham after she criticized comments he made to TMZ. And it seems to be working already, as several companies have jumped ship from advertising on her show, to avoid negative publicity.

Hogg started the brouhaha when he gave an interview to TMZ and complained that he was not accepted to UCLA and other UC schools he applied to. While he also said he knows others get rejected as well, it’s obvious he mentions the rejection for a reason. He knows his current celebrity could force those schools to rethink their decision, if it were made public and he generated sympathy from it.

Here is Hogg’s interview with TMZ, in which he complains about not being accepted to UC schools.

In response, Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted “David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.)” She didn’t seem to have much sympathy for his plight.

That seemed to trigger Hogg, who responded to the tweet in a rather petty way. In a series of tweets, he said he was readying a list of her advertisers to use in retaliation. He then tweeted it out to followers, asking them to boycott Ingraham for “cyberbullying” him.

The boycott attempt seems to be working. Wayfair, TripAdvisor, and Nutrish have all pulled ads from Ingraham’s show.

Ingraham apologized on Thursday in a series of tweets.

Regardless, it appears Hogg will continue to push for a boycott, in an effort to silence Ingraham. He accused Ingraham of just trying to save advertisers. He also accused Fox News of mistreating him and his friends.
