Fox News released a statement Monday regarding the future of one of their popular TV hosts after the network faced an intense boycott of the show. The boycott was pushed forward by far-left activists and Media Matters, according to The Daily Wire.
Simply put, Fox News said they’re standing by Laura Ingraham.
“We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts. We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program Next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children,” the statement read.
Ingraham’s show, “The Ingraham Angel,” came under fire after she tweeted a mild criticism of David Hogg concerning the four colleges who rejected him.
“David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.)” she tweeted.
Hogg’s reaction to the tweet was, in the opinion of the Federalist, “extreme.” He launched a boycott campaign against Ingraham’s show and its advertisers. At least eight companies pulled their ads from her show.
Ingraham announced on Friday that she was going to take the week off to celebrate Easter with her three adopted children. Hogg, a self-admitted atheist, tweeted in response:
“Have some healthy reflections this Holy Week.”
