Rachael Ray’s Nutrish Answers Parkland Student’s Call To Boycott Laura Ingraham

Virginia Kruta Associate Editor

Nutrish, the natural pet food brand owned by celebrity chef Rachael Ray, has come forward as the first company to pull advertising from Fox News personality Laura Ingraham.

Parkland survivor David Hogg challenged Nutrish and 11 other “Ingraham Angle” advertisers to pull their ads from her show in response to a comment Ingraham made about Hogg on Twitter.

Ingraham’s comment, which states the number of colleges by which Hogg has been rejected, has been widely panned by multiple outlets as “taunting” (WaPo), “cyber-bullying” (TMZ), and “mocking” (Fortune) of the Parkland survivor.

The 11 other companies Hogg listed in his call to action were Sleep Number, AT&T, Allstate & Esurance, Bayer, Rocket Mortgage, Liberty Mutual, Arby’s, TripAdvisor, Nestlé, Hulu and Wayfair. None of them has yet come forward to respond to Hogg’s challenge.
