On Thursday, gun control activist David 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.
The boycott had an effect. At least 10 sponsors have pulled their support from “The Ingraham Angle” after the host mocked Parkland, Fla., school shooting survivor David Hogg over his college rejections.
Ingram apologized, but Hogg rebuffed the apology and the battle between the two continues.
Companies including Wayfair, TripAdvisor, Nutrish, and Nestlé have canceled their ads with Ingram.
Conservative activists on social media have launched a counter-boycott against companies that pulled their advertising from Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle”
And it seems the counter-boycott works.
Conservatives recognize it when one of their most articulate spokeswomen finds herself in a bully’s crosshairs.
And they know how to stand up for her.
In Facebook videos and Twitter posts, conservatives are rallying for a counterboycott of companies that pulled their advertising from Ingraham’s show.
Statements by consumers on social media have the same message, but even stronger, calling the companies out by name:
Make sure you boycott EVERYTHING Nestle since they decided to capitulate to teen tyrants. Adults with real jobs and money, tell Nestle to pound sand. BYE! https://t.co/PdDGNaT2fs

Ok. Cancelled @hulu. won't be buying more from Wayfair, Nutrish, or J&J Won't be using Expedia or TripAdvisor for travel plans, & am looking to see if it's possible to remove my reviews on TripAdvisor. Who tries to financially ruin those who disagree with him? #IStandWithLaura

Make sure your voice is heard. David Hogg will not win this war and destroy Laura Ingraham. She doesn’t deserve this. Call the companies dropping her show and tell them they lost a customer. The time for letting things go, is over. We can NOT give in to the left. #IStandWithLaura

And it’s Hogg’s own words that are coming back to bite.
