At least seven companies have pulled their ads from Laura Ingraham's Fox News program after the host accused a survivor of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, of whining over a college rejection.

Nutrish, Expedia, Nestlé, TripAdvisor, Wayfair, Johnson & Johnson, Stitch Fix, and Hulu all pulled their ads or committed to no longer placing ads on Ingraham's show, according to HuffPost.

Some of the advertisers directly acknowledged Ingraham's comments and the role they played in their decision to pull advertising, while others stayed quiet on why they were no longer working with Ingraham's show.

“In our view, these statements focused on a high school student, cross the line of decency,“ TripAdvisor said in a statement. ”As such, we have made a decision to stop advertising on that program.”

After the initial round of advertisers spoke out against her comments, Ingraham apologized to David Hogg via Twitter:

But Hogg wasn't impressed with the timing of her apology and did not accept. “She only apologized after we went after her advertisers,” he told the New York Times in a Thursday interview. “It kind of speaks for itself.”

“I’m not going to stoop to her level and go after her on a personal level,” Hogg added. “I’m going to go after her advertisers.”
