TripAdvisor to stop advertising on Laura Ingraham's show

Online travel website TripAdvisor is planning to stop advertising on Laura Ingraham's show after the Fox News host posted a critical tweet about a Parkland, Fla., high school student.

A company spokesperson said in a statement that the company doesn't "condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster," according to CNBC.

"In our view, these statements focused on a high school student cross the line of decency. As such, we have made a decision to stop advertising on that program," the spokesperson said.

Hogg — who has become a vocal advocate for gun control since the mass shooting that took place at Stoneman Douglas on Feb. 14 — replied a few hours later, asking in a tweet who the Fox News host's biggest advertisers were.

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

Earlier Thursday, Rachael Ray's pet food brand Nutrish also said it was in the process of removing its ads from Ingraham's show.

Ingraham later apologized "for any hurt or upset" she caused Hogg in a pair of Thursday afternoon tweets:
