Laura Ingraham to Take 'Easter Break' from Show Amid Advertiser Boycotts

School shooting survivor and gun control activist David Hogg doubled down on his refusal to accept an apology from Fox News host Laura Ingraham in an interview with CNN on Saturday, as advertisers of her show announced they were ending their relationships with her after she mocked the teenager on Twitter for not getting into his top colleges.

Although Ingraham later apologized "for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the courageous victims of Parkland", that wasn't enough for Hogg, who called for a continued boycott until the Fox News host "denounce [s] the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight".

In response, Hogg, who has called for stricter gun regulations after the February 14 massacre at his high school, called on advertisers to boycott Ingraham's show.

Ingraham apologized Thursday via Twitter, noting that she was sorry "for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the courageous victims of Parkland".

On her show Friday, Ingraham said guest hosts will be filling in for her next week.

"On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the courageous victims of Parkland", Ingraham wrote on Twitter. But her apology did not stop companies from departing. After two advertisers pulled their support, Ingraham, claiming to be moved by "the spirit of Holy Week", apologized. Instead she chose to accuse him of whining after he wrote that he wasn't admitted to four universities where he applied. The companies include Nutrish, Expedia, TripAdvisor, Nestle, Hulu, Wayfair, Stitch Fix, Office Depot, Ruby Tuesday, Entertainment Studios, Miracle Ear and Liberty Mutual.

Stephens' comeback steamrollers Azarenka en route to Miami final
Stephens' opponent in Saturday's final will be either sixth-seeded Jelena Ostapenko or American qualifier Danielle Collins . Stephens didn't record her first win post-US Open until she defeated Pauline Parmentier in Acapulco in late February.

"A blessed Good Friday and Passover to all of you", Ingraham said.

Ingraham has since apologized, but Hogg refused to accept.

At least 15 companies have said they intend to pull their sponsorship of Ingraham's evening show. "I don't see any apology for those people". I think now with advertisers standing with us, we can accomplish anything.
