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

"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.

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

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.
