David Hogg Leads Another Boycott Against Laura Ingraham’s Advertisers

Henry Rodgers | Political Reporter

Parkland shooting survivor and pro-gun control activist David Hogg is leading another boycott campaign against Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham after she defended border patrol agents enforcing the law Monday night.

Hogg, who previously called for a boycott against Ingraham’s advisers after she criticized him for complaining about colleges that rejected his applications, has decided to come after Ingraham again, listing off a number of advertisers for her show and calling for them to be “pulled,” on Twitter Tuesday.

This boycott comes after Ingraham defended border patrol agents on her show for doing their job by separating families that illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border. She also said the facilities where the children are being held are “essentially summer camps,” sparking a response from Hogg, asking Ingraham if she wants “to go to summer camp.”

Hogg followed up his tweet directed at Ingraham with another, asking her who her “biggest advertisers” are now.

As Hogg did in March, he tweeted out another list of her top advertisers, saying if he gets them “pulled” maybe Ingraham will “have to become a camp counselor and learn how wrong she is.” (RELATED: David Hogg Leads Laura Ingraham Boycott Over A Tweet)

The tweet gained immediate support from left-leaning Twitter users, calling for a “boycott.” Others tweeted out the phone number for one of Ingraham’s advertisers.

The pro-gun control activist also previously called for a boycott of companies tied to the National Rifle Association after the Parkland, Florida, shooting in February, which left 17 people dead.

Hogg is one of many on the left who has continued to try to silence anyone with opposing ideas in the media.

Update:

Fox News provided the following statement:

“Laura Ingraham’s very personal, on-the-ground commitment to the plight of impoverished and abandoned children—specifically in Guatemala— speaks for itself. So too does her strong belief in a commonsense, legal immigration system, which will continue to be a focus of her show. FOX News will never tolerate or give in to attempts to silence diverse viewpoints by agenda-driven intimidation efforts.”
