David Hogg March for Our Lives

On Wednesday night, he tweeted a list of companies that advertise on her show.

Lauren Hogg, the sister of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg, ripped into Laura Ingraham after the talk show host issued an apology to her brother in the wake of a growing advertiser boycott. After that move began to gain traction on social media, Ingraham said she was sorry.

Ingraham, in two tweets, apologized Thursday afternoon for "any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the fearless victims of Parkland". The Fox News contributor took to Twitter to slam 17-year-old activist David Hogg for the college rejections he told TMZ about on March 27.

Hogg's boycott proved to be stunningly effective, with advertisers including Rachael Ray's Nutrish pet food, online travel site TripAdvisor and home-furnishings retailer Wayfair all pulling their advertising.

"Why do you support this?" he tweeted at several companies, including Arby's Sleep Number, AT&T, Allstate, Hulu, and Liberty Mutual.

"In our view, these statements focused on a high school student, cross the line of decency", the Needham, Massachusetts, company said in a statement.
