Fox News primetime host Laura Ingraham has not seen any of her advertisers publicly boycott her show despite a backlash on social media following a controversial comment she made about migrant shelters, according to a Tuesday evening report in The Hollywood Reporter.
Ingraham sparked controversy by calling housing for migrant children separated from their parents "essentially summer camps" during her Monday program. The remark led to criticism on social media and calls for another advertising boycott of her show from Parkland, Fla., shooting survivor David Hogg.
The student activist took to Twitter to list Ingraham's advertisers in the same manner he did in late March after Ingraham mocked him for not being accepted to four colleges he applied to.
"So @IngrahamAngle we meet again. Who are you biggest advertisers now?" Hogg asked before adding in a subsequent tweet, "If we get these advertisers pulled maybe @Ingraham will have to become a camp counselor and learn how wrong she is."

“Laura Ingraham’s very personal, on-the-ground commitment to the plight of impoverished and abandoned children — specifically in Guatemala — speaks for itself," the statement reads. "So, too, does her strong belief in a common-sense, legal immigration system, which will continue to be a focus of her show. Fox News will never tolerate or give in to attempts to silence diverse viewpoints by agenda-driven intimidation efforts."
