Fox News host Laura Ingraham and Parkland student and gun control activist David Hogg have been involved in a national feud after Ingraham shared a story of Hogg being rejected by several colleges despite his high GPA. Thousands of people replied to the tweet — including Hogg, who organized a boycott of Ingraham’s largest advertisers.

Advertisers including Jenny Craig, Nutrish, Hulu, TripAdvisor, Wayfair, Expedia, Nestlé, Johnson & Johnson, and Office Depot all pulled out of their partnerships with Ingraham due to the pressure from Hogg and his followers.
“The decision of an adult to personally criticize a high school student who has lost his classmates in an unspeakable tragedy is not consistent with our values,” Wayfair stated. “We do not plan to continue advertising on this particular program.”
Well now, another advertiser has responded to the feud, but they’re taking a totally different approach.
Mike Lindell, the CEO and founder of MyPillow, took to Twitter on Monday and announced that he has no intention of pulling his ads from Ingraham’s show after the call to boycott:

Naturally, thousands of people replied to the tweet in rage, and many stated they would never buy one of his pillows due to his decision.
