At Least 8 Brands Pull Ads From Laura Ingraham’s Fox News Show

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.

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:
