Florida shooting survivor David Hogg declined on Friday to accept Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s apology over a tweet mocking him, saying she’s only expressing remorse because a flurry of advertisers dropped her program.

Hogg, who called for companies to boycott the talk show host after she derided the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student over several college application rejections, framed Ingraham’s apology as insufficient and self-serving. Pressed on whether he'd accept her apology, he replied, "No."

“She’s only apologizing after a third of her advertisers pulled out and I think it’s really disgusting the fact that she basically tried promoting her show after apologizing — or ‘apologizing’ to me,” Hogg told CNN during an interview Friday.

Ingraham issued an apology for her remarks Thursday after several advertisers announced they were cutting ties with the program.
