By Breitbart. Tuesday during an interview with TMZ’s Harvey Levin, gun control proponent and Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg said it was “annoying” he has been rejected by all the University of California campuses that he’d submitted college admissions applications for, but he will continue to “change the world.”
TMZ reported Hogg submitted applications to UCLA, UCSD, UCSB and UC Irvine.
Hogg said, “It’s not been too great for me and some of the other members in the movement, like Ryan Deitsch. We got rejected from UCLA, I got rejected from UCLA and UCSD, so it’s been kind of annoying having to deal with that, and everything else that’s been going on, but at this point, it’s, you know, we’re changing the world. We’re too busy. Right now it’s too hard to focus on that.” (Read more from “Parkland Student David Hogg Can’t Get Into Any Colleges” HERE)
Rejected by 4 Colleges ‘and Whines About It’: A Fox News Host Mocked a Parkland School Shooting Survivor — Now He’s Going After Her Advertisers
By Business Insider. David Hogg, a Parkland school shooting survivor who has become one of the prominent voices for gun control, is now going after a conservative talk-show host’s advertisers after she made light of his college-rejection letters.
Laura Ingraham, a Fox News opinion host, tweeted a link to a news article about Hogg having received rejection letters from several University of California schools.
“David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied,” the article’s headline read, “and whines about it,” Ingraham added.
That tweet went out to Ingraham’s 2.2 million Twitter followers Wednesday morning and made its way back to Hogg nearly 10 hours later: “Soooo @IngrahamAngle what are your biggest advertisers … Asking for a friend,” Hogg wrote, with the hashtag, “BoycottingIngramAdverts.”

Later, he tweeted a list of companies and urged his followers to contact them. It was not immediately clear which, if any, of the companies are current Ingraham advertisers. The boycott resembles campaigns that targeted Fox opinion hosts Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly, who was forced off the network amid a sexual-harassment scandal last year.
