A dozen companies have opted to end their advertising contracts on Ingraham’s show after Laura took on activist David Hogg on Twitter. Some of those advertisers include Office Depot, Jenny Craig, Hulu, and Liberty Mutual.
It all began on Wednesday when Ingraham criticized Hogg over what she referred to as ‘his whining response’ after he got rejected by four colleges:
David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.) https://t.co/wflA4hWHXY

Hogg fired back with an attempt to defund her show, through lost advertisers:
Pick a number 1-12 contact the company next to that #

A little controversy seems to always scare away advertisers — especially when you’re conservative! Ingraham has since conceded her comments, her loss of income has not been regained. Though the loss of advertisers remains at 11 out of 129 (roughly 8.5%); So there’s no concern Laura is going away any time soon!
Our story doesn’t end here, however… The #IStandWithLaura hashtag is absolutely BLOWING UP on Twitter Today.
Conservatives have come out of the woodwork, and they’re hitting back HARD. These companies won’t soon forget the mistakes they’ve made.
I proudly cancelled my @hulu subscription. I will not give my money to a company who does not believe in free speech and uses fascist-like tactics to silence people they disagree with. I encourage you to do the same. #IStandWithLaura #BoycottHulu @IngrahamAngle

David Hogg has become so visibly unhinged over the left’s gun control campaign that I’m worried he might become the next mass shooter.#MAGA#IStandWithLaura

And our personal favorite!
I think it’s funny how when the Left boycotts a company, it backfires & sales go up. (Chic-fil-A & NRA)
And when the Right boycotts a company, sales go down. (Target & Starbucks)
That’s bcuz conservatives actually have the jobs, money & spending power to back up their protests.
