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.
In a response to Ingraham’s tweet, David Hogg called out twelve companies who had advertising deals on the Fox News show to boycott the show. The boycott had a temporary effect. At least 10 sponsors have pulled their support from “The Ingraham Angle” and Ingraham herself announced that she would be taking a one-week vacation just after the incident and was temporarily replaced by guests.
But now our favorite conservative host came back stronger than ever!
Since April 9, her show has averaged roughly 2.7 million, 20% higher than the week, March 26-29, prior to the boycott, which averaged 2.23 million, according to Newsbusters.
By April 13, 27 companies had announced they would boycott the show, but then Ace Hardware reversed its position, saying, “Advertising on any network or show is in no way an endorsement from Ace of the content contained or spoken within that program. We appreciate the different points of view from our customers, and believe people should be treated with respect and civility.”
Ingraham, was, needless to say, delighted with the explosive growth:

There you have it. Now, Ingraham is returning to her show on Monday night.
Thanks, FOX for not caving to David Hogg who has his own agenda and obviously has nothing to do with school safety. He cannot control or Limit Freedom of Speech!!!
