In a statement on Thursday, a company spokesperson said that TripAdvisor does not “condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster.”
“In our view, these statements focused on a high school student, cross the line of decency. As such, we have made a decision to stop advertising on that program,” the spokesperson said.
It seems, however, that Mr. Demagogue Hogg can say anything he wants to an not be held to any reasonable standard. Here’s an example from CNN, “Shooting survivor calls NRA ‘child murderers’.” And TripAdvisor doesn’t consider statements like that ‘inappropriate’? Here’s a clip of the young man delivering his screed.
@TripAdvisor Re: Dropping Laura Ingraham advertising over so-called "inappropriate comments" re: Parkland students. Do you then APPROVE of David Hogg calling NRA members 'child murderers' as reported by CNN?. Maybe NRA members and everyone they influence don't need TA either.
