Late on Wednesday, Fox News pundit Laura Ingraham launched a disgusting smear campaign against David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland shooting turned celebrated gun reform activist.
Hogg and his friends took to Twitter to demand Ingraham’s advertisers pull their sponsorship from her program. One of those business was digital media giant Hulu, which remained quiet for most of Thursday.
Finally, Hogg’s boycott hit pay dirt when Hulu issued this response:
We’d like to confirm that we are no longer advertising on Laura Ingraham’s show and are monitoring all of our ad placements carefully.

Hulu now joins six other companies in the boycott of Ingraham’s childish tantrum. Nestle, Wayfair, TripAdvisor, Rachael Ray’s Nutrish pet food, Expedia, and Joseph A. Banks all announced at different points on Thursday they would no longer occupy ad time on her program.
There are still a few companies to go, so Hogg and his allies on the internet are still pushing. Meanwhile, Ingraham and the team at Fox News are hitting the panic button given their impending – and significant – drop in revenue.
Maybe if they spent more time telling the truth than spreading fear and hate they could get more companies behind them.
