The war between Fox News presenter Laura Ingraham and Parkland survivor David Hogg has taken a fighter out of the ring – but only for a week.
Amid counter-reactions following the public mockery of 17-year-old Marjory Stoneman Douglas Senior Hogg over his college denial, Ingramam announced Friday that she took a scheduled break from her TV show for a week after Easter.
A dozen advertisers this week already pulled ads from "The Ingraham Angle" after they mocked the student activist on Twitter. Among them: Liberty Mutual Insurance, Office Depot, Nestle, Joseph A. Banks, Expedia, Hulu, Johnson & Johnson, Nutrish Pet Food, TripAdvisor, Wayfair, Jenny Craig, and Atlantis Paradise Island Resort, USA Today reports. On Friday night, Ingraham told her audiences, "I'll be free for the Easter holidays with my children next week, so do not worry, we have a large selection of guest hosts who are responsible for me."
A spokesperson Fox News confirmed that the holiday was planned.
The move is the latest blow for the conservative TV presenter after Ingraham tweeted on Wednesday morning that Hogg is "whining" to be rejected by four universities in California and referred to a Daily Wire article as "Gun Rights Provocateur" ,
Hogg said he was accepted at Florida Atlantic University, Cal Poly and Cal State San Marcos, but did not say if he would go to college immediately after high school.

Ingraham, who used the platform and its nearly 2.2 million Twitter followers to bait Hogg, apologized more than a day later after the student asked advertisers to retire, and they responded in kind.
Ingrahams apology began: "Every student should be proud of a 4.2 GPA." She then said, "In the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or injury that my tweet has inflicted on him or one of the brave victims of Parkland."
But Hogg was not influenced. "From a journalistic point of view, I would say it has to be more objective and get out because I'm not the topic here."
Ingraham has her followers. A Twitter user responded to Hogg and told him to keep going. "She has apologized and for me you have to let it go now.All people make mistakes, their mistakes were stupid and ridiculous, but she said that she was sorry."
