Rachel Ray Brand First To Yank Ads From Ingraham

The New York Daily News reports:

An advertiser said Thursday it is severing ties with Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show just hours after Florida school shooting survivor David Hogg implored businesses to do so. Rachael Ray’s pet food brand Nutrish said Thursday it was distancing itself from the conservative pundit’s “The Ingraham Angle,” which airs weeknights at 10 p.m.

“We are in the process of removing our ads from Laura Ingraham’s program,” the company tweeted at Hogg. Hogg, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student, had tweeted the names of 12 “Top Laura Ingraham Advertisers” on Wednesday night, urging users to contact them. Nutrish was No. 3 on the list.

UPDATE: TripAdvisor too!

Online travel website TripAdvisor said it will stop advertising on right-wing host Laura Ingraham’s television after she attacked a victim of the February Parkland, Florida school shooting on Twitter. In a statement on Thursday, a company spokesperson said that TripAdvisor does not “condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster.” “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.
