Sinclair Personality Forced To Resign After Threat To Sexually Assault Parkland Shooting Survivor
A conservative commentator at a Sinclair-owned station just resigned after a backlash ensued over his heinous tweet targeting a teenage school shooting survivor. Jamie Allman, who hosted a nightly news show, sent out a tweet threatening to anally rape Parkland Survivor David Hogg. Allman saw his advertisers flee from his show following his bizarre obsession with Hogg. The conservative host tweeted that he was “getting ready to ram a hot poker up David Hogg’s ass tomorrow,” and added: “Busy working. Preparing.”
Ronn Torossian, chief executive of the PR firm 5W, who is acting as a Sinclair spokesman, said the company has “accepted Mr. Allman’s resignation, and his show has been canceled,” The Washington Post reports.
Advertisers such as Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, St. Louis health center Palm Health, and local real estate office The Gellman Team, announced they would stop advertising on Allman’s shows.
Posted at 8:30am Friday:
We have immediately suspended all spending related to Jaime Allman indefinitely. We will not be deploying those dollars back into the station. We want to make a clear point, that this behavior is unacceptable.

Allman supporters launched the hashtag #IstandwithJamieAllman to defend the conservative host after he threatened to sexually assault David Hogg.
Sinclair is already in the public eye after being outed for its blatant propaganda.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham also lost advertisers after she posted a tweet critical of Hogg, mocking him for college rejections.
Hogg became a vocal advocate for gun control after a gunman opened fire at his high school in February, killing 17 people, and injuring 17 others. For that, Allman threatened to sodomize him.
Allman should consider this a learning experience while he waits in the unemployment line. Attacking a mass shooting survivor is not OK, even if you disagree with his or her politics. And communicating threats via social media is illegal, by the way.
