Liberals are fuming this week after Ace Hardware resumed it’s advertising for Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show after the company initially said it would pull it’s ads over the fact that she mocked Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg for whining about not getting into college.
Daily Mail reported that an Ace Hardware spokesman said last week that the company would no longer advertise for Ingraham’s show, but it was revealed on Friday that the store actually has no intention to pull its ads for and their original decision was a “incomplete.”
“Advertising on any network or show, is in no way an endorsement from Ace of the content contained or spoken within that program,” the Ace spokeswoman said in a statement. “We appreciate the different points of view from our customers, and believe people should be treated with respect and civility… At this time, we have not altered our current media schedule.”
This contradicted the company’s original statement, which said, “I can confirm that we do not have any plans to nationally advertise on Ingraham’s show in the future.”
Ingraham expressed her gratitude for Ace Hardware by tweeting that she will be “buying a wheel barrow and other gardening tools at Ace Hardware this weekend.”

Liberals have taken to Twitter to express their fury over this.
“Ace Hardware has lost me forever. I’ll make sure to tell all my friends that Ace Hardware supports bullying teenage shooting victims and of course fascism,” one user wrote.
“I will no longer be using Ace Hardware even though I will have to travel 15 miles one way to another story,” another added.
