If your defense of Ingraham is, "But David Hogg said some mean things on Twitter!" then you ought to think about whether there might be a better response for you to make as an adult.

On Thursday evening, Hogg took to Twitter to target another apparent Ingraham advertiser: sandwich chain Arby's.

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg says he is refusing to accept Laura Ingraham's apology.

Ingraham apologized in a tweet the following day, citing "the spirit of Holy Week", and invited Hogg to appear on her show.

The teen said he will not accept the conservative pundit's half-hearted Twitter apology until she admits that she has slandered him and his classmates.

"Laura Ingraham's cowardly, public bullying of the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is consistent with her vile views including her ongoing targeting of the LGBTQ community", said GLAAD president Sarah Kate Ellis in a statement.

She made no mention of the uproar on her show Thursday night except for a cryptic remark when she asked people tweeting at her to be kind.

"It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children", Hogg tweeted.

Some of the advertisers directly acknowledged Ingraham's comments and the role they played in their decision to pull advertising, while others stayed quiet on why they were no longer working with Ingraham's show.

Kansas State was denied its attempt to return to the Final Four for the first time since 1964. "His point was well taken". For Saturday night's South Regional final, the Ramblers' elder statesmen are sitting immediately behind the Loyola bench.

Before long, Hogg's tweet was flooded with replies from his supporters, some of whom pasted images of their messages to the companies mentioned.

Hogg wasn't the only person who found Ingraham's tweets to be less than honest.

According to reports, more than 10 advertisers have either pulled away or completely dropped running commercials on Ingraham's weekday show.

Pressure from Hogg's 600,000 Twitter followers undoubtedly helped the companies come to their respective decisions.

And former host Bill O'Reilly lost dozens of advertisers for his show after the New York Times reported that he and Fox News had agreed to a series of secret settlements over harassment allegations.

Ingraham apologized Thursday in a tweet that also commended Hogg for his 4.2 GPA.

"Laura Ingraham doesn't have any shame".

The food conglomerate told HuffPost, "We have no plans to buy ads on the show in the future". He went on to accelerate the boycott effort by listing 100 advertisers for the show by retweeting a list provided by Media Matters. "They are sponsoring someone who will use the next tragedy to attack the most vulnerable", Robinson said.

Characters like David Corn (Mother Jones), Joy Reid, and the entire Parkland student group turned to the social network to criticize Ingraham's attack.
