Laura Ingraham returned to Fox News on Monday, as did the backlash over her recent comments about Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg.
In her 10 minute monologue, Ingraham cried about the “Stalinist” efforts by her critics who use terms like “safe spaces” and “white privilege” to “intimidate those who disagree with them from entering the dialogue at all.”
LOLz, cuz y’all know how Stalin believed in the power of protest and boycotts.
Yup, she pulled the “free speech” card — after using her First Amendment to make fun of a teenage shooting survivor for not getting into college. Ingraham really thinks she can say whatever the fuck she wants and continue to have a cable news program.
But advertisers continue to say otherwise. A second wave of sponsors pulled their ads from Ingraham’s show following questions from media outlets and angry posts from customers on social media.
Both Blue Apron and SlimFast announced they would no longer sponsor The Ingraham Program in the future, sharing on Twitter:
We were unaware that our ad would be running on The Laura Ingraham Angle last night. We will no longer be advertising on the show, and will be working with our media buying partners to more closely monitor where our ads appear going forward.

We have stopped advertising on the Laura Ingraham show and have no plans to resume in the near future. We are also monitoring all ad placements carefully.

These are just the latest of 20 companies to pull their spots from the program after Hogg called on advertisers to do so last month. A few companies, however, announced they have no intention of pulling their ads — like My Pillow, which ran two spots on Monday.
Sounds appropriate, given that The Ingraham Angle will likely be put to sleep before the host ever dreams about issuing an authentic apology.
