Parkland student targets Ingraham's advertisers after tweet about college rejections

One of the student survivors of the Parkland, Fla., mass shooting is calling for people to target Fox News host Laura Ingraham's advertisers after she posted a critical tweet about him being rejected from colleges.

Ingraham had tweeted a Daily Wire story earlier Wednesday about Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg not getting into four colleges he had applied to. 

Hogg replied a few hours later, tweeting at the Fox News host and asking who her biggest advertisers were.

He later tweeted out a list of Ingraham advertisers, telling people to contact those companies. 

Hogg has emerged as a national figure in the weeks since the mass shooting at his Florida high school that left 17 people dead. He helped to organize and lead the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

Many had knocked Ingraham for criticizing Hogg over his college rejections, including lawmakers.

In a Thursday afternoon tweet, Ingraham apologized to Hogg "in the spirit of Holy Week" and said he was welcome to return to her show anytime. Her apology came as three advertisers announced that they were pulling their ads from her program.
