Add Expedia and Nestle to the list of brands pulling their advertising from Laura Ingraham‘s Fox News show.
Parkland school shooting survivor and gun control advocate David Hogg tweeted a list of 13 of Ingraham’s advertisers last night asking his followers to reach out to the companies. They did. And so far, 5 have said they would no longer advertise on the show. Pet food company Nutrish was first out, followed by Trip Advisor and Wayfair.
The two latest advertisers are Expedia, which told CNBC, “we have pulled the advertising,” and Nestle, which has been engaging with customers on Twitter:
Hey, thanks for letting us know how you feel (and your neat space stuff)- we have no plans to buy ads on the show in the future.

Ingraham has apologized for tweeting a story about Hogg being rejected by four colleges he applied to, then saying he “whines” about it. But Hogg has also taken exception to how Ingraham and other Fox News hosts have “treated my friends and I in this fight.”
Hogg has said he’ll only accept her apology if she denounces that treatment.
Update: Thursday evening, Hulu said it was pulling out of the show:
We’d like to confirm that we are no longer advertising on Laura Ingraham’s show and are monitoring all of our ad placements carefully.

Hey there! We appreciate our clients’ feedback on this, and we can confirm we’re no longer advertising on Laura’s show.
