David Hogg, the controversial survivor of the Parkland high school shooting in Florida, is now challenging Arby’s in the boycott battle with Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
On Wednesday, Hogg called for advertisers to pull their commercials from Ingraham’s Fox News show after the host mocked him on Twitter for not being accepted into several colleges.
Since Wednesday, companies including Wayfair, TripAdvisor, Nutrish, and Nestle have announced that they will pull their ads. But Hogg was not finished, on Thursday he took to Twitter and aimed at another big Ingraham advertiser – Arby’s.
“Why do you support @IngrahamAngle ?” Hogg tweeted, with a screenshot showing an email to various Arby’s executives and press contacts.
Hogg seems to have deleted the tweet listing executives’ emails, with the caption “What’s the beef?” at some point on Friday morning. No doubt he realized sharing the personal information might have taken things too far.
Even though Hogg’s tweet was taken down, it was quickly shared by others who supported the student’s stand.
Ingraham apologized to Hogg on Twitter on Thursday. However, Hogg did not accept the apology and tweeted in response, “an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough.”
Hogg added: “I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight. It’s time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.”
