Keurig and other companies pull ads from 'Hannity' following Roy Moore interview

Share

"He was apparently, like, 32, and he dated - one girl was 18, one girl was 17", Hannity said on his radio program, according to Media Matters.

In a report from the Washington Post, the publication reported Moore allegedly tried to pursue romantic relationships with teenagers when he was in his thirties. Keurig stated that while it's not pulling advertising from Fox News, the coffee-brewer manufacturer has "stop [ped] our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show".

In a nutshell, a lot of Hannity fans are supposedly boycotting Keurig now-and even replacing or destroying ones they already own-in order to show their sharp displeasure with the company's decision to abandon the Fox News firebrand.

Advertisers began fleeing from Fox News' "Hannity" following the conservative host's much-criticized coverage of Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore's sexual misconduct allegations.

Keurig was quick to comment on this, by tweeting: "Angelo, thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention".

Indeed on Saturday, several advertisers announced they were pulling their ads from "Hannity", though they did not cite specific reasons for pulling the ads.

Here's a running list of all the advertisers who have pulled their ads from Hannity's program in response to his defense of Moore. "We continue to closely evaluate where we advertise", read another tweet by 23 and Me.

But the move is not without effect, with supporters of the host posting #BoycottKeurig on Twitter, leading to the hashtag treading on the social media platform. The topic #BoycottKeurig was among Sunday's top trends on Twitter.

Many of Hannity's supporters outrage that the company was taking a political stance, while others vowed to return their Keurig coffee machines they purchased for Christmas.
