Fox News host Laura Ingraham is going on a one-week “Easter Break” from her show as advertisers boycott The Ingraham Angle over a tweet criticizing anti-gun Parkland student activist David Hogg.

Ingraham announced on Friday night’s broadcast that the break was a “pre-planned” vacation with her family for the Easter holiday.

“A blessed Good Friday and Passover to all of you; I’ll be off next week for Easter break with my kids,” she said. “Fear not. We’ve got a great lineup of guest hosts to fill in for me.”

Shortly after the announcement, Hogg tweeted, “Have some healthy reflections this Holy Week”:

Multiple companies announced this week that they would no longer advertise on Ingraham’s program after the Fox News host tweeted an article from The Daily Wire about Hogg being rejected from four colleges—including UCLA—and criticized him for whining about it despite having a 4.1 GPA:

Hogg, after seeing Ingraham’s tweet, urged his fellow left-wing activists and fans to target the host’s advertisers to get them to boycott her show:

Ingraham apologized to Hogg in a follow-up tweet and made an offer for him to “return” to The Ingraham Angle as a guest for a “productive discussion”:

Hogg rejected Ingraham’s apology, saying it was “not enough” to apologize just to save her advertisers:

The Ingraham Angle is one of the highest-rated cable news programs on television. The show came in fourth place for having the most viewers of any cable news program in February, averaging more than 2.6 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Only Fox News shows Hannity, Tucker Carlson Tonight, and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show beat the five-month-old cable news program in the cable television ratings war.
