Hogg Hints at New Boycott Due to 'Proud NRA Sellout': I'll Get 'My Chocolate Chip Muffins Elsewhere'

Parkland shooting survivor and gun control activist David Hogg has been all over the news for his feud with Fox News host Laura Ingraham. Ingraham shared a story of Hogg not being accepted to colleges and Hogg reacted by organizing a boycott of her top advertisers.

The boycott was fairly successful in terms of convincing advertisers to pull out of their partnerships, but Ingraham bounced back with ratings in the top four cable news programs for total viewers during the month of April. 

Since then, Hogg launched another boycott, but this time of BlackRock and Vanguard, which are two of the biggest investors in the gun industry. “[I]f you use them, feel free to let them know,” he tweeted. 

However, as IJR previously reported, the trillion-dollar investment groups have not reported any changes in their clients since the boycott was announced. 

Hogg isn't done, however.

On Tuesday, he responded to Publix, a Florida-based grocery chain, “financially supporting” a “proud NRA sellout” named Adam Putnam, who is running for Florida governor.

“Guess I'll be getting my chocolate chip muffins elsewhere from now on,” he tweeted. The tweet he replied to also included the #BoycottPublix hashtag.
