Blue Apron said Tuesday it will no longer advertise on Laura Ingraham's show, joining more than 20 other sponsors that have cut ties with the Fox News host after she posted a critical tweet about a Parkland, Fla., student.

"We were unaware that our ad would be running on The Laura Ingraham Angle last night," the company tweeted Tuesday.

Ingraham late last month posted a tweet sharing an article about Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg, who has become a vocal gun control advocate since the February shooting at his school, getting rejected from four colleges.

"David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates.)," Ingraham tweeted.

Hogg responded by listing companies that advertise during Ingraham's show and encouraging people to contact them.

In the days following, multiple companies announced they would pull their ads from the show. Ingraham apologized, but Hogg refused to accept, accusing her of just trying to save her advertisers.

On Monday, Ingraham returned to her show after a planned vacation.

During her program, she tore into what she called "Stalinist" efforts on behalf of liberal activists to "intimidate those who disagree with them."

She vowed not to stand for "the left's" efforts to "silence conservative voices."

SlimFast also announced Tuesday it would no longer advertise on Ingraham's show.
