Another Conservative TV Host Loses Advertisers After Targeting Parkland Survivor David Hogg

St. Louis broadcaster Jamie Allman tweeted that he wanted to “ram a hot poker up David Hogg’s ass” — and things went downhill from there

As an advertiser boycott against Fox News host Laura Ingraham rages on, another conservative television host is now hemorrhaging sponsors for some ill-considered words directed at Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg.

St. Louis television and radio host Jamie Allman has lost three sponsors since Friday after tweeting that he wanted to “ram a hot poker up David Hogg’s ass.” The tweet was swiftly deleted, but a screenshot was captured by the Riverfront Times, which broke the story.

The pullouts — which the team at Riverfront also first reported — include Palm Health, Ruth’s Chris steakhouse and The Gellman Team, a local real estate group. All three decisions appear to have been in response to inquiries by Stacey Newman, a Missouri state representative. Both Newman and Allman did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap. Though the latter’s twitter was on lockdown as of Monday morning.

The strategy of advertiser boycotts — always in vogue among liberal critics of conservative media — took on new life after David Hogg called for a boycott of Fox News host Laura Ingraham. Since Ingraham’s fateful tweet mocking Hogg’s failure to get into a number of universities, her show has bled more than a dozen advertisers. The host also took a curiously timed vacation which ends today.
