Eleven companies so far have pulled their ads after a pushback by Parkland student David Hogg, 17, who called for a boycott of her advertisers.

The Fox News host's break is suspiciously timed, coinciding with an onslaught of more than a dozen advertisers pulling support for her show.

"I would only consider doing it after she apologizes to all the people that she's hurt throughout her professionalism career because of her immaturity and unprofessionalism", he said.

"David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it", Ingraham tweeted.

She suffered bullet injuries and was admitted to the Military Hospital Peshawar and then taken to London for further treatment. Is it a dream or reality? "They were touching the mud with their eyes", Haqqani said of Malala and her family.

Ingraham said on her show that the time off was due to the Easter break, and Fox News later told The New York Times that it was a "preplanned vacation with her kids".

Although Ingraham later apologized "for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the courageous victims of Parkland", that wasn't enough for Hogg, who called for a continued boycott until the Fox News host "denounce [s] the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight".

Hogg responded by tweeting a list of companies that advertise on Ingraham's show and encouraging them to yank their ads from her show.

Hogg said on CNN that it's "disturbing" that Ingraham has not been held accountable for her past comments.

Parkland student activist David Hogg has had more than his 15 minutes of fame, and his time may be running out.

Facing pressure, Ingraham wrote an apology on Thursday afternoon, saying: "On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the courageous victims of Parkland".

"As always, he's welcome to return to the show anytime for a productive discussion", Ingraham said. I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight.

"I would love to see her go", Hogg told the Daily News in a phone interview earlier Friday evening. "Have some healthy reflections this Holy Week", he tweeted.

Love letters, dirty photos sent to Parkland gunman
In an a letter stuffed inside an envelope covered in hand-drawn hearts and smiley faces, a teenager wrote, "I'm 18-years-old". She also noted, "I'm really skinny and have 34C sized breasts". "Everyone now and then gets a few, but nothing like this".

Ingraham apologized, but Hogg blasted it as an insincere "effort just to save your advertisers". I think now with advertisers standing with us, we can accomplish anything.
