Fox News host Laura Ingraham is back from her vacation, which she took after a boycott ensued when she mocked Parkland survivor David Hogg for being rejected by some universities. Hogg called for a boycott of advertisers on Ingraham’s nightly show, and before he went on vacay, 16 of them had pulled their sponsorship, but since then, quite a few more advertisers have dumped her.
On Monday evening, according to the Huffington Post, the only big-ticket advertisements that aired on her show came from the meal delivery service Blue Apron, the Beaches hotel in Turks and Caicos, and the genetic testing company 23andMe.
Welp, Blue Apron just abandoned ship. “We were unaware that our ad would be running on The Laura Ingraham Angle last night,” the company tweeted on Tuesday.
“We will no longer be advertising on the show, and will be working with our media buying partners to more closely monitor where our ads appear going forward.”

SlimFast announced on Tuesday that it is no longer advertising on Ingraham’s show.
“We have stopped advertising on the Laura Ingraham show and have no plans to resume in the near future,” the diet shake company tweeted. “We are also monitoring all ad placements carefully.”

Ace Hardware dropped Ingraham last week.
22 companies have opted out of sponsoring Ingraham’s show. Sinclair broadcasting personality Jamie Allman was targeted with a boycott after he threatened to anally rape Hogg with a hot poker. In the end, Allman was forced to resign. What he tweeted was far worse than Ingraham’s tweet, but the Fox News personality has always bullied kids.
