A conservative TV and radio host has resigned and had his show cancelled over a disturbing Twitter threat he made to Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg.

He hosted several shows in St. Louis, Missouri.
On Monday night, Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns the St. Louis ABC station, confirmed that Allman had resigned and that his program had been terminated.
The businesses which pulled out his shows were local and included Ruth's Chris Steak House franchisee, the Gellman Team and PALM Health. Democratic State Rep. Stacey Newman, who first called on residents to pressure Allman's advertisers, also said Allman had previously attacked students protesting a local school board candidate who describes herself as a "Confederate", and has a lengthy history of Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, and racist posts on her social media accounts.
According to a spokesman from Sinclair's hired PR firm, who spoke to the Washington Post today, "We have accepted Mr. Allman's resignation, and his show has been canceled".

Ingraham later apologized to Hogg, but almost 20 companies pulled advertising from her show, which she returned to last night after a week's vacation.
Allman had also weighed in on Hogg's response to Ingraham's comments.
On Saturday night after a town hall, Newman said in an interview she felt Allman crossed a line, and she "needed to step up". "We have to be allowed to refute what you're saying... or to respond to it, you can't be all the time grabbing your blanket when the going gets tough".
