David Hogg is one of the leaders of the anti-gun Parkland students.
He’s been all over TV accusing gun rights organizations and supporters of being child murderers.
Fox Host Laura Ingraham tweeted at him and then all hell broke loose.
Ingraham tweeted out the news that Hogg had been rejected by a number of colleges in California.
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

Ingraham’s critics accused her of personally attacking a teenager.
Ingraham’s supporters argued Hogg has become a public figure and a vocal proponent of banning certain guns and passing “universal background” checks which would create a national gun registration database system.
Hogg responded by calling for a boycott of her advertisers.
This is a tried and true left-wing tactic designed to bully and silence conservatives for expressing their viewpoint by threatening their livelihood.

CNBC reports companies ended up dropping Ingarham’s show:
“Online travel website TripAdvisor said it will stop advertising on right-wing host Laura Ingraham’s television show after she attacked on Twitter a survivor of the February school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
In a statement on Thursday, a company spokesperson said that TripAdvisor does not “condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster.”
“In our view, these statements focused on a high school student, cross the line of decency. As such, we have made a decision to stop advertising on that program,” the spokesperson said…
Earlier on Thursday, pet food company Nutrish said in a tweet that it is “in the process of removing our ads from Laura Ingraham’s program.”
Ingraham quickly apologized, but that didn’t satisfy the left as Hogg and his sister continued to pummel her on social media.
*Waits till we boycott her advertisers to apologize* wow.
