Advertisers Drop Right-Wing Radio Host After He Threatened To Sodomize Parkland Student

Another Trump-loving pundit just learned the hard way that it’s not acceptable to use their platform to attack the teens who survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Last week, right-wing radio host Jamie Allman threatened to sodomize 17-year-old Parkland survivor David Hogg with a hot poker for advocating for gun control.

Allman tweeted that he was “getting ready to ram a hot poker” up the “ass” of the Parkland massacre survivor.

“When we kick their ass they all like to claim we’re drunk. I’ve been hanging out getting ready to ram a hot poker up David Hogg’s ass tomorrow. Busing working. Preparing,” he said in a since-deleted tweet.

Since then, a boycott movement has convinced three advertisers to pull out of Allman’s shows. He hosts a morning show at 97.1 FM and The Allman Report on ABC-affiliated station KDNL.

Missouri state Rep. Stacey Newman was one of the outspoken critics of Allman.

“We demand advertisers stop being complicit,” Newman wrote. “Stop supporting an adult who spews such hate.”

The three companies that have pulled their advertising are The Gellman Team, a real estate group, PALM Health, and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
