Hey people maybe think before you f8cking tweet Bullsh1t that will cost you everything!
Sorry but WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE, these kids are survivors of a massacre and had to walk through a mass murder seen. You do the same and then you have the right to talk.
Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg on Friday pilloried Fox News host Laura Ingraham, declining to accept her apology after she mocked him for getting rejected from several colleges ― one of several right-wing attacks against the student activists of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
“She’s only apologizing after a third of her advertisers pulled out, and I think it’s really disgusting, the fact that she basically tried promoting her show after apologizing to me,” Hogg, 17, said on CNN’s “New Day.” “If she really wants to do something, she could cover inner-city violence and the real issues that we have in America.”
On Wednesday night, Hogg called on his Twitter followers to pressure advertisers to cut ties with Ingraham’s TV and radio shows. By the end of Thursday, at least nine companies had announced they were pulling their ads:
- Johnson & Johnson
- Stitch Fix
- Jos. A. Bank
Some of the companies did not specify whether their decision was directly tied to Ingraham’s comments. But several did criticize the Fox News host.
“As a company, we support open dialogue and debate on issues,” a spokeswoman for the home goods retailer Wayfair said. “However, the decision of an adult to personally criticize a high school student who has lost his classmates in an unspeakable tragedy is not consistent with our values.”
Ingraham apologized Thursday afternoon, attributing her apology to “reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week.” She also invited Hogg to appear on her show “anytime for a productive discussion.”
