On Friday, outrage erupted on Twitter after Kurt Eichenwald was disrespectful toward Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Kyle Kashuv in a tweet, which quickly led to an advertiser pulling their ads from the network.
In a tweet, Eichenwald told Kashuv: "Kyle you continue to disappoint. Trafficking in fantasies, fine. Your followers are infantile, your only form of debate is insult. And you wonder why I have no respect for you."
A boycott was quickly called for on MSNBC's advertisers, to which one company, Proactiv, announced they were pulling their advertisements from the network.
In an email to The Daily Wire, NBC Universal stated: "Kurt Eichenwald is not associated with MSNBC and has not been an MSNBC contributor since February 2018."
At the time people started to call for a boycott of MSNBC's advertisers, Eichenwald had stated in his Twitter bio that he was an MSNBC contributor.
