Atlantis pulls ads from Laura Ingraham’s show

Greg Nash

The Atlantis, Paradise Island resort said Friday that it would be pulling its advertisements from Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s show over her comments about a Parkland, Fla., high school shooting survivor.

“Atlantis does not support or agree with the recent comments made by television broadcaster Laura Ingraham,” a spokesperson for the Bahamas resort said in a statement to The Hill.

“Although we are an organization that believes in freedom of expression, we do not condone discrimination, bullying, mockery or harmful behavior of any kind. As a result of these events, we have decided to remove all brand advertising tied to the program,” the statement read.

Atlantis is at least the 10th advertiser to pull support from Ingraham’s program.

Ingraham faced criticism after she mocked Parkland student David Hogg on Wednesday for being rejected by some colleges.

Hogg quickly hit back by targeting Ingraham’s advertisers.

 

 

 

The Fox News host apologized Thursday as companies began to pull ads from her show.

However, Hogg has rejected her apology, saying that Ingraham had only done so because she was losing advertisers.
