As I am sure all of you are very aware. Following the parkland incident, many students became famous. These survivors became the voice of a gun reform the march for our lives protest, in which many of these students were the focal point Goddard nearly
two million people in protest around the country and there were even protests in other countries calling for american gun reform. It is a fact to state these students have become public figures and political activists. So, at what point is it ok to criticise them and their ideas? It would seem that many people who have been critical of these students have then been criticised by others for attacking children or for attacking survivors of a horrible tragedy, but certainly after netting, nearly six hundred thousand twitter followers or in the case of a magazine, was one point: five million twitter followers. They will face criticism, they will face insults. So what's the latest news? Lord Ingram mocked David Hog, so he organised a brigade on Twitter that target
her advertisers who eventually pulled out, I think there's a lot of talk about here is a lot to criticise and I think at some point we are going to have to criticise these kids. They don't get me wrong. This video it's not just going to bring about criticism for these public activists. It's also going to bring about racism for those who are a bit aggressive online above or I didn't all that.

The first story from NBC is Lord Ingram loses advertisers after criticising parkland student David Haug, David Haug took on Fox NEWS as Lord Ingram and succeeded in getting advertisers who jumped ship a number of Africa. Have abandoned Fox NEWS House, Loring Grams weaken I'd show after she alleged Parkland Florida. Survivor David Hog was bitter over his rejection for freshmen admission by multiple universities. Those coming pulling their ads included, Tripadvisor, expedient Hulu, Johnson and Johnson Wayfare nicely and nutrition, a spokesman for Tripadvisor send the company doesn't condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster. In our view, these statements focused on a high school student,
cross. The line of decency between in question from Lord Ingram said David Hog, rejected by four colleges to which he applied and wines about it deemed by use your lay with a four point, one GPA, totally predictable, given acceptance rates, the store from the daily wire that Ingram tweeted reads done rights provocative David Haug, rejected by four colleges to which he applied before our eyes. Student, a survivor of February fourteen shooting in Portland, who recently help organise the march more lives, said for different purposes in the University of California. School system have turned him down. You see allay you see San Diego, you see Santa Barbara, an you see Irvine. If colleges wants to support us in that great, if they don't, it doesn't matter we're still going to change the world. So, let's start with some fresh criticism for Lord Ingram, but trust me
There is plenty of criticism to go around. I don't really think at least according to that article David was really whining about it. I think he actually had a nice humble statement at the end that if they dont want to support him, it is what it is and is gonna do a thing I think that's respectable. However, the response to the mockery, in my opinion, was disproportionate, David Haug, tweeted picking number one through twelve contact the company next to that number, top Laura Ingram Advertisers and he says sleet number. Eighty anti nutrition all state and ensure its Bayer rocket mortgage Liberty, mutual Arby's, Tripadvisor nicely Hulu and Wayfare, and, as we have already seen from NBC News, article Tripadvisor, expedient Hulu, Johnson and Johnson Wayfare nicely nutrition have pulled out. Look when you are an adult when you have a large following David has got a lot of followers, he's got six hundred, sixty thousand natural number, six hundred and five
nine thousand seven hundred and sixty one followers. When you have a following this large and you are as influential ass David has become. You have to expect that other people are going to mock, criticised and insult you, that's just the way it is so the appropriate response to use your new large following two brigade, the advertisers of someone who insulted you. In my opinion, no, but look David can do whatever he wants, but organizing a protest among his six hundred and sixty thousand followers to send calls to advertisers because he doesn't like being insulted is a bit disproportionate and, in my opinion, a bit image
but suffice it to say David strategy worked because many advertisers did pull out and Laura had to issue an apology she treated. Any students should be proud of four point: two GPA, including David Haug, on reflection in the spirit of only weak. I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweets caused him or any of the brave victims of parliament. For the record, I believe my show was the first to feature David. She continues immediately after that horrific shooting and even noted how poised he was given that tragedy, as always, is welcome to return to the show any time for a productive discussion, and where are we from their wealth media I'd has a story. Parkland soon, David Hog talks, Lord Ingram, on CNN. She needs to stand down David
appeared see on Friday morning. In the wake of the advertiser boycott, he has led against Lord Ingram Spock's news show after the host Taunton him for his college application Rejections Ingram, send out a single tweet mocking hog and after a backlash and call sworn advertiser boycott in response, she apologized in another tweet Haug did not accept or apology and number of companies have pulled ads from her show a twitter user posted one of their messages to sleep number stating. I was
just wondering why sleep number is using the eight thousand dollars. I gave the company to buy my bed to fund the hateful Laura Ingram shows on Fox to which they responded. I'm sorry for any confusion. I certainly understand your concern. We have a broad sweep of networks where we advertise, but do not place. Media buys on specific shows. As we plan our advice, we don't take a stance on content or views with programmes we advertise on or one specific shots which is common practice with that said, we regularly review, are advertising strategy to decide appropriate placement, and I can certainly pass your feedback along and, in short, reaches the right people. Lord Ingram mocked David Hall. In fact, I think she was being a little bit hyperbolic because, in my opinion, I don't think David was actually whining about not getting into schools in Response David used, his large following of nearly six hundred and sixty thousand followers to direct aid brigade against advertisers of Lord Ingram show
I think that is disproportionate and I also think at this point. We need to recognise that with the large following an power that David Haug has, we absolutely need to challenge and criticise him. It is not fair to say that simply because they are high school students or survivors or children, that they are free from criticism. If David Haug is going to be a part of an organisation that rallies too, million people to protest. We need to have a serious discussion about his ideas and what he is doing with his following. I think we have to be very careful about an individual who would target the advertisers of a show simply because they posted a tweet mocking. I think most adults, people, horror, a bit more mature, would take a more reasonable approach to this and just respond with hate feel free to mock me. What
I'm gonna do my thing now I say brigade and let me clarify what this means a brigade is when you rally a following to target a specific link, show or direct them to take specific action. In this instance, David was personal. Slighted. This is not about the gun debate. This is not laws opinions on guns. This is Maura, sending a personal insult to David, in which David's response was to rally nearly six hundred and sixty thousand people to complain to her advertisers and, unfortunately, Here's the bigger mistake, the advertisers who made their announcement and pulled out in my opinion, have made a terrible error. They have just placed themselves into the gun, debate,
but not over gun issues over someone who couldn't handle taking a personal insult from another public figure, Hulu posted on Twitter in response to David HAWK that they were cancelling their ads. Saying we'd like to confirm that we are no longer advertising on Laura angry hems show and our monitoring, all of our add placements carefully. Did that work. The first response I just went ahead, and found another provider and cancel your service have fun virtues signalling it was do you like this individual is cancelling not because they like hog, but because Hulu was cancelling their advertising
You see the point is no matter what side these companies take. They will face a backlash. The smartest thing anyone can do in an incident like this is stay out of it again. This isn't even about the gun debated this point. This is more about the culture war, this person tweeted that Hulu was virtues signalling, so they cancelled in fact, Hulu tweeted a second time we'd like to confirm that we are no longer advertising on Lord Ingram show our monitoring. All of our ad placements carefully, to which someone responded really just read this threat of tons of people cancelling, and these are just the people tweeting once more. All this is very obvious. When you become a public figure, you will receive public criticism. People will start to say nasty things up, you all day every day you will probably get death threats and that's the worst part of this, and I don't know they have. I know I have in the past and at something that happens being in the public and having a large following,
comes with responsibility. I would never use my following to attack and advertiser or some company because they insulted me. You have to be a bit more mature about this and you have to think how does that reflect on you and your movement, David Haug, was upset for being insulted, so he started. A boycott against a tv show just seems pretty unreasonable. If you ask me in the media story, camera pointed out that Ingram as a conservative talk, show host and isn't objective before, noting that she apologized for her too. Pokken fight hog. Do you accept her apology? No hug said she's only apologizing after one slash three of our advertisers pulled out. I think it's wrong and I think if she really wants to do something, she could cover inner city, violence real issues that we have in America. He continued. I know she has a talk show host, but as such, she also has a responsibility to show both sides
of the story, and I agree with the last point that statement. I think everyone has a responsibility to be honest, but what is the most important story? That's for an individual to decide at Lord Ingram wants to focus on certain issues. State she thinks are important. That's all she can do it's impossible to cover every thing all the time, but let's at what happened. She apologized she lost them. Advertisers and David said no he's doubling down and continuing to go for her advertisers, David Haug tweeted. Can we please not debate this? As Democrats and Republicans but discuss this as Americans in the comments, if you see someone you disagree with, do not attack each other talk to one another. This applies to me too. We must work together to save our future nineteen thousand three hundred and ninety four retreats. I would like to make sure David is aware of his own tweet being assessed.
What did by someone is not a political debate and does not grounds to send your followers after their advertisers. Additionally, even if that's, if you think it's ok, we will watch as I know it, David than the right sure she apologized. She walked back or statement David. You one why you continue to drive the attack I don't understand what this just scares me, because I see someone who has gained a massive amount of power and is willing to use it even after someone has submitted to them. So I
yes. The last thing, I would say is take your advice, David and perhaps, instead of directing a brigade, a boycott against or advertisers, you could have talked work. She invited you on her show, and maybe that's. The best thing we can do is have a conversation, because when you sit down with people it becomes infinitely harder to attack them, though sometimes these attacks escalate. When we have discussions, we start to realise that we actually have a lot more in common. I think most people want the same things. We want the world to be better. We want people to be happier, we want to prosper. We just disagree on how we're going get there. Sometimes we disagree a whole lot and some people can get pretty crazy, but for the most part, I think we're all just trying our best to make the world better so maybe again take your advice, David and have a conversation, but let me know to think in the commons below should we be able to criticise these days. Look in my opinion. Yes, their high profile public activists and their ideas need to be challenged. Their use of power needs
changed, but I dont think I have all the answers. I don't think I'm always right or anything like that. So certainly I could be wrong and I'm open to hearing real arguments from all of you. Do you think that these children are victims and should be allowed to speak freely without prism? Or do you agree with me comment below? Let me know if you think you can follow me waiter, at him gasped stay tuned new videos everyday at four p m. Thank you so much watching and I will see you. Ultima
