When it comes to conservative television and radio talk show host Laura Ingraham, you likely either love her or can’t stand her. If you are a Fox News viewer, you probably fall into the former category, but surprisingly, if you are her own brother, you are likely closer to the latter.
Curtis Ingraham, a teacher living in Northern California, and one of Laura’s biggest critics on social media, happens to also be her brother. Curtis, who regularly attacks his sister’s views as well as her morals, has a long history on Twitter which would surprise most Fox News viewers.
“My sister’s recent comments likening child detention centers to summer camps is beyond disturbing. Where is her humanity? Sad and tragic,” Curtis Ingraham tweeted in response to a boycott being called for against his sister back in June. “My sister’s repeated mean spirited, flip and insensitive remarks makes me, her brother, question her very humanity,” he continued.
It’s not only his sister he attacks, but also her employer, Fox News, which you can see in a response to a tweet by Ed Krassenstein a few weeks ago:
FOX is like state-run TV. They should be cited for lack of journalistic integrity. And where is my sister, Laura Ingraham, in all of this?! Undoubtedly, she will continue to cave for personal gain. Sad.

Curtis briefly explained the history he has with his sister, and posted an old family photo of when times were better between the two.
“We have become estranged over the past ten years, but were very close at one point. There are facts and stories that need to be shared that will shine a light on her hypocrisy,” he wrote.

Laura Ingraham issued a statement regarding Curtis’ remarks, in a statement which reads as follows: “My siblings and I are shocked and saddened to learn of these false and hurtful online postings. Although we’ve been estranged from him for many years, we love our brother and miss him very much.”
Not all families are perfect, and oftentimes families disagree. Most of the time these disagreements are aired in private, but sometimes, like in the case of George and Kellyanne Conway or Stephen Miller’s family, these grievances and feuds erupt into the public sphere. This appears to be the case with the Ingrahams.
