Chris Evans sucker-punches the Fox News host who taunted Parkland teen

Fox News primetime host Laura Ingraham apologized on Thursday for mockingly pointing out that Parkland high school student and gun control activist David Hogg has been rejected from several of the colleges he's applied to.

Fox News' Laura Ingraham once again unleashed her hatred towards a teenager who survived one of the deadliest school shootings in the modern USA history by bullying him on Twitter for not being accepted into University of California, Los Angeles; University of California, Santa Barbara; University of California, San Diego or University of California, Irvine.

So far, none of the other 12 advertisers identified by Hogg has announced any plans regarding sponsorship of Ingraham's conservative broadcasts.

The backlash against Ingraham started Wednesday after she posted a tweet that quoted a story about Hogg being rejected by four colleges he applied to.

Hogg fired back with his own tweet calling on his followers to boycott Ingraham's advertisers.

"We are in the process of removing our ads from Laura Ingraham's program", the company tweeted at Hogg.

"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", Ingraham tweeted. Hogg responded by targeting Ingraham's advertisers.

Hogg, and other vocal survivors of gun violence, are among those leading renewed efforts to promote gun-law reforms after the February 14 shooting at Majory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were killed.
