Laura Ingraham thought it would be funny to shitpost about one of the Parkland shooting survivors after he wasn’t accepted by four colleges he had applied to even though he has a 4.2 GPA. David Hogg responded by posting a list of her top advertisers on Twitter to launch a boycott.
Pick a number 1-12 contact the company next to that #

The first of likely many advertisers responded by saying the company is pulling its sponsorship of Laura Ingraham’s program.
“We are in the process of removing our ads from Laura Ingraham’s program,” Rachael Ray’s pet food brand Nutrish tweeted to Hogg.

While Trump supporters on Twitter were upset over the company’s decision, the majority of the responses showed support over removing the ads.

We have two dogs and three cats. We will be looking into buying products from Nutrish, a company that obviously wants to be on the right side of the moral compass.
The attacks on the surviving students have been appalling from so-called ‘pro-life’ conservatives. A word of advice for Laura Ingraham: Don’t start no shit and there won’t be no shit, k?
