Twitter Is Tearing Down Fox News Host’s ‘Apology’ To Parkland Survivor David Hogg

Fox News has been unapologetically critical of the school shooting survivors in Parkland, FL, almost assuredly due to their vocal criticism of the NRA and the lack of gun control in the United States.  However, shockingly enough: it turns out that bullying teen victims of gun violence isn’t a great PR move, particularly to advertisers.

Laura Ingraham, one of the myriad icy blonde Fox News hosts whose personality is reminiscent of a pizza cutter shoved into a Bible, recently mocked David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland shooting and an outspoken proponent for gun control, about his rejection from four colleges.

Obviously, Ingraham’s maliciousness towards a teenage survivor of gun violence was not well met. At the behest of David Hogg, advertisers such as Hulu, Johnson & Johnson, Nutrish, TripAdvisor, and Wayfair all pulled their advertising from Ingraham’s show, taking a stance against her tone-deaf bullying.

It was only after advertisers began to pull out that Ingraham issued a strained apology, “in the spirit of Holy Week.”

Many people were not moved or convinced by Ingraham’s half-hearted apology, which likely only occurred due to waning corporate sponsorship.

Ingraham’s apology received widespread criticism for its insincerity and its exploitation of religion.

While some people might argue that Ingraham’s apology is legit, the timing is particularly suspect.

“She only apologized after we went after her advertisers,” Hogg told the New York Times. “It kind of speaks for itself.”
