Fox News is backing network host Laura Ingraham and warned they won’t permit the voices of Fox employees to be “censored,” after advertisers from Ingraham’s show started to withdraw their support last week after she mocked a survivor from the Parkland, Fla., shooting.

The boycott came after David Hogg, one of the most outspoken voices following the shooting, encouraged advertisers to pull out from Ingraham’s show after she tweeted about Hogg’s complaints about being rejected by four colleges.

“We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” Fox News Co-President Jack Abernethy said in a statement Monday. “We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.”
