Rachel Ray's pet food brand Nutrish announced Thursday that it has begun the process of dropping Ingraham's show.

One of the advertisers dropping Fox News host Laura Ingraham after she mocked a school shooting survivor on Twitter is Rachel Ray's pet food brand Nutrish.

In a response to Marjory Stoneman Douglas student David Hogg's tweet suggesting his supporters pressure Ingraham's advertisers to back away, Nutrish tweeted Thursday that it was "in the process of removing" its ads from her show.

Ingraham on Wednesday shared a Daily Wire story that reported Hogg was rejected from four colleges.

“David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates,)” Ingraham tweeted.

Hogg — who has become a vocal advocate for gun control since the mass shooting that took place at his school on Feb. 14 — replied a few hours later, asking who the Fox News host's biggest advertisers were in a tweet.

Hogg then sent out a call to his followers suggesting they contact Ingraham's advertisers.Along with Nutrish two other companies announced Thursday that they will abandon Ingraham -- Wayfair and TripAdvisor.

Ingraham has since issued an apology.
