On March 28, Parkland gun control activist David Hogg launched a campaign to pressure Laura Ingraham sponsors to abandon the Fox News host.

David Hogg launched the campaign with a tweet from Washington, DC. He listed 13 sponsors:

  1. Sleep Number
  2. AT&T
  3. “Nutrish”
  4. Allstate
  5. esurance
  6. Bayer
  7. Rocket Mortgage
  8. Liberty Mutual
  9. Arby’s
  10. Trip Advisor
  11. Nestle
  12. Hulu
  13. Wayfair

Hogg’s campaign against Ingraham’s sponsors is reminiscent of the campaign to pressure corporations to cut ties with the NRA in the days and weeks after the Parkland school shooting. Breitbart News reported that more than a dozen companies caved in the face of the campaign and cut ties with NRA. Those included:

  1. Alamo Rent a Car
  2. Avis
  3. Allied Van Lines
  4. Budget
  5. Chubb Insurance
  6. Hertz
  7. North American Van Lines
  8. Paramount Rx
  9. SimpliSafe
  10. TrueCar
  11. Best Western
  12. United
  13. Delta Airlines

Delta Airlines lost a $40 million tax break for their actions, and February donations to the NRA PAC tripled as Americans rallied to the organization.
