Chris Evans Slams Fox News' Laura Ingraham for Her Tweet About David Hogg

Chris Evans Slams Fox News' Laura Ingraham for Her Tweet About David Hogg

Chris Evans is defending David Hogg after Fox News host Laura Ingraham posted a tweet about the Parkland survivor’s college acceptances and rejections.

If you missed it, David told TMZ that he was rejected from a few schools, including UCLA.

After reading the news, Laura tweeted, “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.)”

Chris quoted the tweet and wrote, “What is the purpose of this tweet? What is wrong with you? Are you actually proud of this? Regardless of your political beliefs and motivations, THIS is how you choose to present yourself? You must be so sad, angry and scared.”

In addition, David is not letting Laura get him down and he actually posted a list of her advertisers that he’s suggesting that his fans start boycotting.

    She did it because the kid was basically saying he should be able to get in anywhere because of who he is now.

  • imnobody

    i’m sure Ms. Ingraham couldn’t care less what these celebs think.

  • watnext

    Those are her words, not his. He didn’t need to say anything. And maybe because his GPA is 4.2 (not 4.1), which is pretty damned good! She’s just an ignorant blowhard bully.

  • NL

    yes but public education in florida is pretty bad. There 4.2 compared to private high schools is like a 3.4 there. An A is diff state wide versus private wise at least in florida. ( trust me I lived there for over 20 years)

  • watnext

    Hmm, interesting. Food for thought.

  • Piper

    They tell us the kids should be taken seriously but when you interact with their arguments criticizing the stupidity of them, the kids transform into delicate flowers who are emotional and just venting. Either they are making serious policy arguments or they are not. If they are making serious policy suggestions, we should be able to interact with their policy suggestions without being called a horrible person for upsetting a kid who has survived a mass shooting.

  • Piper

    This is what Hoggs has been tweeting, he’s calling republicans (‘sick f***ers’), saying Dana Loesch she was ‘hypocritical and disgusting’ for criticizing Broward Sheriff Scott Israel and accusing Marco Rubio of being bribed by the NRA to give away children’s lives. So he can dish it out but can’t take it when it gets heated. And just so you know for arguments sake, I’m a Democrat.

  • Lorelai Killmore

    His comments were on topic to school shootings. Hers were off topic and a personal attack. If he called her ugly, made fun of her ratings, her family – anything close to that – I could see it as fair play. But he didn’t. He’s not a snowflake – she’s just petty and sad.

  • Lorelai Killmore

    I’m sure Betsy Devos will solve that. *rolls eyes*

  • Lorelai Killmore

    That’s fine. But she cares about money and was quick to apologize when sponsored started to drop.

  • Piper

    How is it “on topic” when he call republicans “sick f*ckers”? My mother and grandmother are republicans. You don’t solve anything with hate.

  • imnobody

    yeah, we live in a world where everyone whines and threatens if someone says something they don’t like. it’s past the point of ridiculousness. Leftists have no tolerance for anything but their views and beliefs. And Ms. Ingraham didn’t bully him. She made a statement. BFD.

  • Lorelai Killmore

    She’s on tv. Which is supported by ads. If people don’t agree with her actions or words, they can boycott which threatens her network’s money and maybe her job. That’s capitalism at his finest. I feel like republicans should love this.

  • Lorelai Killmore

    Agreed you don’t solve with hate but the comments about his college admissions just seems petty and below the belt. At least the republican comment was political. The college thing just seems like a low blow. We’d all be pissed if he attacked her appearance, family or ratings.

  • Lorelai Killmore

    She wasn’t commenting on policy. That’s the problem.

  • imnobody

    I’m sick of everyone complaining and whining about everything. And twittering. She should lose her job because some special little snowflakes didn’t like her tweet? That’s insanity.

  • Lorelai Killmore

    She’s a public figure being held accountable. If you were a dick at your job, your boss has the right to fire you too.

    Also I’m sick of the right using the term “snowflake”. Just use the word faggot, like you clearly want and intend it to mean.

  • jh7058622

    That kid may very well be a asshole but his brain isn’t fully developed yet what is her excuse? She consciously went after a child personally because he disagrees with her politically.

  • disqus_8YchtRit8p

    Wrong, not at all what he said, actual clip of him speaking for himself is on TMZ.

  • disqus_8YchtRit8p

    When & where has he said that or anything like it? He’s not trying to effect change by alienating people. Not even your mother & grandmother.

  • disqus_8YchtRit8p

    Not just a child, days ago an athlete, apparently she’s the only one allowed to have an opinion.

  • disqus_8YchtRit8p

    Thank you, Chris.
