Fox News host apologises for criticism of USA school shooting survivor

Fox News host apologises for criticism of USA school shooting survivor

In response, Hogg, who has called for stricter gun regulations after the February 14 shooting, called on advertisers to boycott Ingraham's show.

This week, she was forced to apologize to a 17-year-old survivor of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida after she mocked him for being rejected admission to four colleges.

On Wednesday, David Hogg called for advertisers to pull their commercials from Ingraham's Fox News show after the host mocked him on Twitter for not getting into colleges he applied to.

A Fox News Channel spokeswoman said Miss Ingraham was taking a pre-planned spring holiday with her children. He and other classmates have become the faces of a new youth-led movement calling for tighter restrictions on firearms. "But fear not, we've got a great lineup of guest hosts to fill in for me", Ingraham said on her show, "The Ingraham Angle".

"On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the courageous victims of Parkland", she wrote.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the mass expulsions were "a blow from which Russian intelligence will need many years to recover".

Ingraham apologized the next day, explaining that "any student should be proud of a 4.2 GPA". The first to cancel ads were Nutrish, a pet food line created by celebrity chef Rachael Ray; TripAdvisor; online home furnishings seller Wayfair; Nestle; Hulu; Expedia; and online personal shopping service Stitch Fix. The former reality TV star would regularly call into Fox News shows to express his political opinions on the news topic of the day, despite not having any professional experience in politics. Hogg didn't accept the gesture, tweeting, "an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough". "I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight".

"From a journalistic standpoint, I'd say she needs to be more objective and needs to stand down because I'm not the issue here. And I think that's really what we're trying to do here".

"Ignorance is something I try to ignore".

Consumers have increasingly used social media to demand that advertisers respond to controversies, particularly those involving Fox News hosts.
