Bad news for Fox News host Laura Ingraham. Principal, a global investment group that advertises for Ingraham’s television show The Ingraham Angle, is currently in the process of removing its advertisements.
Principal isn’t the only investment group distancing themselves from Ingraham, either. At least 12 other investment groups are removing their advertising from The Ingraham Angle.
This massive decision from the investment groups comes after Ingram sent a tweet mocking David Hogg, one of the Parkland, FL high school shooting survivors, on Twitter. During the incident, she was insulting Hogg because of certain college rejections he was receiving.
Below is a snapshot of the tweet Ingraham sent:
Just hours after Ingraham’s tweet went live on Wednesday, Hogg began targeting Ingraham’s advertisers. A snapshot of the tweet he sent in response is shown below.
Since the incident, major companies such as Stitch Fix, Hulu, Expedia, Trip Advisor, Nutrish, Wayfair, Johnson & Johnson, Jenny Craig, Liberty Mutual, Atlantis Paradise Island, Office Depot, and Nestle have also taken action.
Ingraham has since sent a public apology for her comments via Twitter. However, Hogg sent a response, saying he rejects Ingraham’s apology. He also said she only sent the apology because she was losing advertisers.
Below are snapshots of the back-and-forth tweets between Hogg and Ingraham on this issue.
