Ingraham on Wednesday posted a mocking tweet of high school senior David Hogg, taunting him for not getting into some colleges he had applied to.

"I'll be off next week for Easter break with my kids but fear not, we've got a great line up of guest hosts to fill in for me", Ingraham said during Friday's show.

The mea culpa didn't suffice for Hogg, who demanded that Ingraham also denounce comments made by others on her network before he would accept her apology.

"The decision of an adult to personally criticize a high school student who has lost his classmates in an unspeakable tragedy is not consistent with our values", Wayfair, an online retailer of home goods, said in a statement. Several advertisers are backing away from her show.

Hogg responded to Ingraham's original comments by tweeting a list of her advertisers and urging his followers to contact them.

Supporters of Ingraham took to social media to say they would, in turn, now boycott companies that canceled their ad buys. "If she really wants to do something, she could cover inner-city violence and the real issues that we have in America".

Softball roundup: Old Mill rallies past Southern, 3-1
The first game against WPI turned into a shootout, as both teams kept exchanging runs en route to six lead changes. Neuenfeldt pitched a complete game on her way to the win, allowing three with two earned while striking out one.

After companies began dropping The Ingraham Angle, Ingraham eventually offered an apology to Hogg.

Hogg wrote on Twitter that an apology just to mollify advertisers was insufficient.

Bill O'Reilly took a "pre-planned vacation" last April amid advertiser cancellations after the New York Times detailed his settlements following harassment allegations from five women, totaling at least $13 million. It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student, who has become a vocal gun control activist in the wake of the deadly shooting, was more than ready to fight back.

"We'd like to confirm that we are no longer advertising on Laura Ingraham's show and are monitoring all of our ad placements carefully", the company said.

The Ingraham Angle is one of the top-rated news/opinion shows on cable.
