Wayfair and TripAdvisor Pull Adverts from Laura Ingraham’s FOX News Show

After FOX News host Laura Ingraham had told David Hogg to stop “whining” after being rejected from 4 California Universities, the newly famous teen demanded that her advertisers drop their support for her show.

So far, two have listened: online travel website TripAdvisor and online home goods company Wayfair.

Ingraham has already issued an apology via twitter:

In a statement to CNBC, a TripAdvisor spokesperson said that it does not “condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster.”

Rachel Ray’s Nutrish said earlier Thursday that they are pulling their ads from the Ingraham Angle.

“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 company spokesperson said.

Wayfaire made a public statement also:

“As a company, we support open dialogue and debate on issues. However, the decision of an adult to personally criticize a high school student who has lost his classmates in an unspeakable tragedy is not consistent with our values,” Wayfair’s head of public relations, Jane Carpenter, told CNBC.

“We do not plan to continue advertising on this particular program,” Carpenter said.

The same thing happened to the NRA, when  over a dozen companies cut ties with the gun lobby just 10 days after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
