Hannity Fans Smash Keurigs After Company Pulls Ads Over Moore Interview
ST. LOUIS —
Two days after Keurig (and other companies) announced it was pulling advertising from Sean Hannity's syndicated radio show on FOX News Radio, people took revenge on social media, sharing video of the various ways they destroyed their Keurig coffee makers.
The companies which announced that ads were being pulled say they were pressured to do so after Hannity's interview with Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore, who is facing a media attack over sudden allegations of inappropriate contact with underage girls nearly 40 years ago. Hannity received a backlash for questioning the motives and timing of the accusers, who were revealed in a Washington Post article published five weeks before the Alabama Senate election.
Critics said Hannity went too easy on Moore, and by Saturday, several companies including Keurig and E-Trade announced they would pull their ads.
Supporters of Hannity then turned back on Keurig, circulating the hashtag #BoycottKeurig and showing video of themselves destroying their Keurigs through the weekend.
