Amid a slew of high-profile departures from shameless white nationalist Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show after she opted to mock a Parkland shooting survivor, the host made a bombshell announcement tonight.

Per Variety, Ingraham has announced that she will be taking a “pre-planned vacation,” which is strikingly reminiscent of former Fox host Bill O’Reilly’s own “pre-planned vacation” before ultimately being ousted from the network after his advertisers jumped ship in similar fashion.

The announcement comes as seventeen companies have abandoned the Fox News host after her misguided attack on 17-year-old David Hogg’s unfortunate college rejections.

As of now, sponsors including Honda, Miracle-Ear, Principal, Ruby Tuesday, Liberty Mutual, Office Depot, Nestle, Wayfair, TripAdvisor, Nutrish, Expedia, Joseph A. Banks, Hulu, Stitch Fix, Atlantis Bahamas, Jenny Craig, and Johnson & Johnson have all boycotted Ingraham after her misguided remarks.

Their departures come only days after Hogg – along with the help of his friends, all of whom wield a lot of power with their social media followings – took to Twitter to demand Ingraham’s advertisers pull their sponsorship from her program.

Amid the exodus, Ingraham did attempt to issue a half-hearted apology to Hogg.

Hogg, for his part, firmly rejected the transparent olive branch.

Here’s to hoping that Ingraham’s “pre-planned vacation” ends exactly as O’Reilly’s did.
