Fox News host Laura Ingraham apologized Thursday after she posted a critical tweet about a Parkland, Fla. high school student.
"Any student should be proud of a 4.2 GPA incl. @DavidHogg111. On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland," Ingraham tweeted.
"For the record, I believe my show was the first to feature David immediately after that horrific shooting and even noted how "poised" he was given the tragedy. As always, hes welcome to return to the show anytime for a productive discussion."
The apology comes after Ingraham faced backlash after she posted a tweet critical of Parkland student, David Hogg, who has become a vocal advocate for gun control since the mass shooting last month at his high school.
Ingraham on Wednesday shared a Daily Wire story that reported Hogg was rejected from four colleges. 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,) Ingraham tweeted.
Hog replied a few hours later, asking who the Fox News host's biggest advertisers were in a tweet.
He later tweeted out a list of Ingraham's advertisers, directing people to contact those companies.
Online travel website TripAdvisor and Rachael Ray's pet food brand Nutrish have since said they would stop advertising on Ingraham's show.

I guess she didn’t learn anything about fighting back from POTUS Trump.
Were crossing over into brownshirts running the country.
It’s too bad she caved. Obviously she didn’t talk to Hannity, he fought back and won. She could have too. All she has done now is strengthen this hogg jerk...each of his wins will embolden the little moron even more.
I got criticized for saying Laura shouldn’t have went after him. Now the floodgates are open and the Left is now going after her scalp.
Laura had NOTHING to apologize for. Now let’s see how gracious and willing to tolerate different views he is by taking her up on her offer to appear on her show. He just may find it (I HATE this smarmy phrase) teachable moment.
Can’t make this stuff up....kowtowing to this stuff never works.
Tolerance will not be tolerated.
Love Laura—dumb move though!
Guess Laura is scared of losing her $10 to $15 million a year job
So she caved. I am disappointed.
Appeasement won’t stop these people.
Never apologize to a fascist, especially a teen aged one.
Even so, I'm surprised UC Berkely hasn't provided him with a full scholarship yet.
No kidding. In reality, these fascists should be apologizing to her (would never happen)
What a stupid thing to do.
Now you have empowered the little creep, Laura, you dingbat.
Why the hell is Laura crawling?
Disappointed with her on this.
