Sean Hannity fans start boycott of Keurig products

Sponsors Are Pulling Their Ads From Hannity's Show In Response To His Roy Moore Coverage

Fox News host Sean Hannity is often the center of controversy, but his latest defense of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's alleged pursuit of teen girls may have been a step too far.

Hannity responded to his supporters on Twitter Sunday night, indicating that he will give away coffee makers to those with the best Keurig smashing videos.

Backlash to the backlash: Hannity fans tweet with #BoycottKeurig, including images of them destroying their Keurig coffee machines.

Conservatives have called for yet another frivolous boycott that they will likely come to regret; this time, against the Keurig Green Mountain brand coffee machines.

"Figured I'd let Keurig and all these other companies know we don't believe in your fake outrage being portrayed as some kind of virtual-signaling morality test", one man said in a video posted on Twitter.

Moore, 70, has been publicly accused in a deeply sourced report from the Washington Post of having sexually pursued multiple teenage girls while in his early 30s, including a particularly detailed allegation that he molested a 14-year-old.

Hannity is, in effect, signaling to would-be advertisers that this is how they'd be treated should they decide to cut ties with Fox News.

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

"We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show", read a tweet by Keurig. O'Reilly continues to deny the allegations.

Hannity went on to tout the positive reactions to his interview with Moore last week, and he concluded by saying he will not apologize for allowing the embattled Senate candidate a presumption of innocence, even as MMfA tries to silence conservative voices.

Gamgort said that the public tweet was "highly unusual and "done outside of company protocols". Do you think Keurig is taking the wrong side in this debate?

Hannity said the company was a victim of aggressive maneuvers by the left-wing media watchdog Media Matters and a social media person panicked.
