Gun-control activist David Hogg is demanding advertisers for Laura Ingraham’s show on FOX News boycott her because she mocked his college rejections.
Hogg, 17, was recently interviewed by TMZ and revealed that his application to attend UCLA, UCSB, UCSD, or UC Irvine were denied.
The article made national headlines, to which Ingraham tweeted in reply: ‘David Hogg rejected by Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it,’ she tweeted on Wednesday.
‘Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates),’ she added.
Entitled millennial David Hogg then immediately replied: ‘Soooo what are your biggest advertisers…Asking for a friend. #BoycottIngramAdverts’.
Via Daily Mail: He then tweeted a list of advertisers which included AT&T, Nutrish, Allstate, Esurance, Bayer, Liberty Mutual, Arby’s, TripAdvisor, Nestle, and Hulu.
Hogg instructed his nearly 600,000 followers to pick a number between 1 and 12 and contact the company next to the number.
The teen also tweeted at each of the Twitter accounts directly, linking to Ingraham’s tweet and asking ‘why do you support this?’
TMZ founder Harvey Levin came to Hogg’s defense, tweeting directly at Ingraham and asking if she had watched the video of the interview at all.
‘David was not whining. I called him about the story,’ Levin wrote. ‘He was not feeling sorry for himself in the slightest.’
‘It was my idea that colleges should consider applicants who are so committed. Did you watch the video?’
On Tuesday the college hopeful revealed the four California schools had rejected his application.
The teen also revealed he has a 4.2 GPA and scored a 1270 on his SAT, both of which are considered above average.
Hogg, who recently helped organize March For Our Lives, admitted that it was hard to focus on college decisions at the current moment.
