As Twitchy has told you, David Hogg tweeted out a list of advertisers on Laura Ingraham’s show and called for a boycott.
Pick a number 1-12 contact the company next to that #
Top Laura Ingraham Advertisers

6. @RocketMortgage Mortgage

Hogg was angry after Ingraham made comments about his recent interview with TMZ where he said his applications to four colleges had been rejected. As for Hogg’s call for an Ingraham advertiser boycott, one company has already caved in to the demand:
We are in the process of removing our ads from Laura Ingraham’s program.

What started as a Second Amendment debate has now moved into First Amendment territory over comments somebody finds offensive:
Because she tweeted an article containing information he put on the Internet? Seems like an extreme reaction that will totally not backfire on your company at all like all the other company PR moves against conservatives https://t.co/yzxchYVkGI

She tweeted an article containing information he put on the Internet. Why are you even pretending her action is the reason you're pulling your ads. You simply disagree with her politics.

Yeah because choosing a side in public as a business has shown to work really well, so far!

Why? David can't handle criticism? He put himself in the spotlight. Weak move Nutrish

Plenty of liberals thanked Nutrish for pulling ads off Ingraham’s show, but others, not so much:
Nutrish bad decision. Boycott works both ways. Will not be using your product.

Switching brands now, I despise companies that get political regardless of which side they choose to demonize.

Oh good, the bag of food I bought on a Tuesday was my last one. You might notice how well it’s working out for others…conservative voices may not be annoyingly screechy, squeaking wheels like those of liberals but they certainly pack a $$$ punch. Good luck with that ???

What a pity. My dogs love your product. But, I will NOT support any company that penalizes a citizen for exercising their 1A right. You just lost a customer.

As other companies have inadvertently discovered, caving into the progressive demands can end up backfiring badly.
