There was absolutely nothing incorrect about Ingraham’s tweet. The kid genuinely did whine about the rejections. But we live in a time in which The New Yorker has compared Parkland “survivor” Emma Gonzalez to Joan of Arc, a time in which a politician’s career was ruined by calling Gonzalez a “skinhead lesbian” (Gonzalez is a self-described lesbian with a shaved head, but, to the faithful, truth can’t be a defense against blasphemy), and a time in which smug atheist comedian David Cross, who loves bragging about how he holds nothing sacred, damns the critics of the Parkland kids to a hell he doesn’t even believe in.

Ingraham should have known better than to apologize. Honestly, if she thought she could somehow save herself by groveling, she’s too stupid to deserve a show in the first place.
I know about these matters from experience…
