Conservatives Destroyed Their Keurigs In Solidarity With Sean Hannity

People Destroy Keurig Coffee Makers After Company Pulls Ads From Sean Hannity Programs

The current rush of companies pulling ads from Hannity's show is related to his recent commentary on the sexual misconduct allegations against Moore, now running for U.S. Senate as a Republican against Democratic challenger Doug Jones.

Sean Hannity retweeted and thanked many #BoycottKeurig participants over the weekend and promised to give away 500 coffee machines to what is now surely an under-caffeinated fan base.

This weekend saw a littering of smashed machines from the company across social media as fans of Fox News's Sean Hannity pledged to boycott the brand.

Keurig CEO Bob Gamgort admitted the decision was "highly unusual" and "outside of company protocols", according to Business Insider.

Hannity, speaking on another Fox show late last week, said that he misspoke and that he was referring to the other women who told The Washington Post last week that Moore had dated them when they were 18 or 19 years old and Moore was in his 30s.

The heated political environment has created a slew of headaches for marketers who are pilloried for supporting some news networks and then slammed when they pull their ads.

"They purposefully twist, lie, distort, propagandize, and weaponize whatever is said, whatever other people say, because they want to silence every conservative voice in the country". Still, he continued to embrace and defend Moore even after some prominent Republicans, including Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, have called for him to leave the race.

In Alabama, the legal age of consent is 16 and, until 2003, 14-year-olds were legally allowed to get married.

After Media Matters and others criticized Hannity as being too defensive of Moore in his coverage of the story, Keurig tweeted it was going to pull its advertising. Not only has Keurig chose to bail on Sean's show, but Realtor.com has also pulled their ads, according to The New York Daily News. Some companies, including Keurig, have already pulled their advertising from Hannity's show and distanced themselves from the controversial host. Or is it simply silly to destroy a coffee machine over a debate that has little relevance?
