Tweeting an article from Daily Wire about Hogg’s college prospects, Ingraham appeared to make light of his rejections, saying it was “totally predictable given acceptance rates” that he was “Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA.” In the tweet, Ingraham also said Hogg whined about being rejected.

Now, this tweet caused a lot of controversies and Hogg responded just a few hours later, asking the Fox News host who her biggest advertisers were, adding the hashtag “#BoycottIngramAdverts.”
He also tweeted calling on his followers to boycott Ingraham’s advertisers. “Pick a number 1-12 contact the company next to that #,” he tweeted.
Hogg called out twelve companies who had advertising deals on the Fox News show in response to a tweet Ingraham posted last Wednesday, in which she mocked the teenager for having been rejected by four University of California colleges. She wrote:
Pick a number 1-12 contact the company next to that #
