SlimFast announced Tuesday that it is no longer advertising on Laura Ingraham's show, more than a week after companies began cutting ties with the Fox News host.

"We have stopped advertising on the Laura Ingraham show and have no plans to resume in the near future," the diet shake company tweeted. "We are also monitoring all ad placements carefully."

SlimFast, the 21st company to drop its ads on the show, made its announcement a day after Ingraham's first episode back from a planned vacation.
During the program Monday night, Ingraham tore into what she called "Stalinist" efforts on behalf of liberal activists to "intimidate those who disagree with them."
Ingraham first drew backlash last month after she posted a tweet mocking Parkland, Fla., high school shooting survivor David Hogg over his college rejections. Hogg responded by calling for an advertiser boycott of Ingraham's show.
Ingraham apologized, but Hogg refused to accept, accusing her of just trying to save her advertisers. Companies to drop advertisements on "The Ingraham Angle" include Liberty Mutual, Ruby Tuesday, Bayer and Office Depot.
On Monday, Ingraham opened her show by vowing not to stand for "the left's" efforts to "silence conservative voices.”
"Let's face it: expressing views that just five or 10 years ago were considered mainstream can now get you fired," Ingraham said. "It can cause you to lose a promotion. Or you can be branded a 'hater,' or, yes, you can get boycotted."
