“A bully is a bully and it’s important that you stand up to them,” Hogg told CNN’s Ana Cabrera.

“She told Lebron James to shut up and dribble,” Hogg continued. “I don’t see any apology for those people. It’s sad, it’s disturbing to know that somebody can bully so many people and just get away with it, especially to the level she did. I think now with advertisers standing with us, we can accomplish anything.”
It was at that moment that Cabrera brought up the fact that some people consider Hogg to be a bully.
“The word ‘bully’ stands out because some people are calling you a bully,” Cabrera told Hogg as she referenced a tweet from conservative commentator Erick Erickson in which he called Hogg’s refusal to accept Ingraham’s apology a sign that he is a bully.
When asked what his response was to Erickson’s tweet, Hogg replied: “I don’t agree with it.”
Hogg demanded that Ingraham apologizes to everyone that she has ever hurt in her career before he would consider appearing on her show to have a discussion with her.
“I would only consider doing it after she apologizes to all the people that she’s hurt throughout her professional career because of her immaturity and unprofessionalism,” Hogg said. “It’s not right and I think she needs to apologize to those people that she’s hurt.”
