Ebates Is 27th Laura Ingraham Sponsor to Pull Ads

Kate McKinnon's Laura Ingraham Touts Her Very Real New Sponsors on SNL's Weekend Update

"We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children".

Ingraham's SNL visit bucked the usual Weekend Update interview back-and-forth.

On Saturday Night Live this week, Ingraham (portrayed by Kate McKinnon), appeared on Weekend Update where she talked about her "planned" vacation and new sponsors with host Colin Jost.

Among Ingraham's new sponsors are Carl's Sr., Your Pillow, Shkreli's Jelly, and Reverse Mortgage. "After spewing venom for decades, Twitter suddenly has made me accountable OK", she said while rolling her eyes.

An airline has also signed on to sponsor her show.

Watch McKinnon's Ingraham explain who those are sponsors are below. "And Your Pillow, from the makers of My Pillow". We need more pillows.' Or how about Shkreli's Jelly.

McKinnon, who also reprised her hilarious Jeff Sessions portrayal for the episode's "Cold Open", unsurprisingly plays Ingraham as an absolutely clueless privileged white lady with no soul and a whole lot of new sponsorships.

McKinnon's version of Ingraham had similar thoughts. "But I will continue to defend the First Amendment. That's my right to bully people without being bullied in return".

"The Ingraham Angle" has been hit by an advertiser boycott campaign spearheaded by Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg after Ingraham mocked him for "whining" about his rejection from several California colleges.

On Friday, German chemical company BASF pulled ads from "The Ingraham Angle", saying in a tweet that "our advertising selection is based on channels rather than individual shows".

Ingraham issued an apology on Twitter, but it came too late to stop her advertisers from pulling their support from her show.
