“HEY @FLOTUS MY BROTHER IS LITERALLY GETTING CYBERBULLIED BY @IngrahamAngle. ANY COMMENTS?” Lauren Hogg wrote, referring to Ingraham’s tweet about her brother.
First Lady Melania Trump has stated that cyberbullying is one of the initiatives she would focus on as the first lady, specifically how cyberbullying through social media affects children.
As of Thursday afternoon, the first lady has not responded to Lauren’s tweet.
Ingraham received a lot of pushback after she teased Hogg in a tweet for not gaining acceptance to certain colleges with a 4.1 GPA.
David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.) https://t.co/wflA4hWHXY

Following Ingraham’s statement, David Hogg called on advertisers to boycott Ingraham’s Fox News show The Ingraham Angle. Several advertisers—including Nutrish, Wayfair, and TripAdvisor—announced that they would remove their ads from Ingraham’s program.
