Keurig Pulls Ads From Sean Hannity's Program for A Major Reason

Why Are People Boycotting Keurig? Sean Hannity Supporters Are Up In Arms Sergi Alexander  Getty Images Entertainment  Getty Images

But this time, Mr. Hannity's online supporters fought back in numbers against the advertisers - even, in some cases, destroying their coffee makers.

Other companies who pulled support from Hannity include Realtor.com and fashion brand Eloquii-though neither have received the same amount of social media attention as Keurig.

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has maintained his innocence, going so far as to say he will sue the Washington Post for publishing allegations that he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl.

Roy Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct with a 14 year old girl when he himself was 32. Three other women said he dated or asked them out on dates when they were teens and he was in his early 30s.

Some consumers wrote to Keurig on Twitter to reconsider their ad support after the host appeared to defend Moore and questioned the allegations. He told Hannity he didn't know Corfman and that he didn't remember "dating any girl without the permission of her mother". "We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show", the tweet read.

"Liberals are offended by this video of a Keurig being thrown off of a building", one user by the name Collin Rugg tweeted, along with a video of a coffee maker being thrown off a balcony.

"There was no sexual, there was kissing involved, and then they're saying this one encounter with a 14-year-old". O'Reilly continues to deny the allegations. "And there's, I just, I don't know how you find out the truth".

"I am humbled and speechless and frankly laughing my ass off", Hannity said in a tweet. During a speech in September 2016, Clinton said, "You could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables". It came as left-wing media watchdog Media Matters urged critics to pressure sponsors to pull their ads.

In terms of the bottom line, CBS MoneyWatch wrote Monday that the global company shouldn't get too jittery about the protest, noting that the brand's devotees dwarf "Hannity"'s nightly audience of 3.2 million: "Even if all of those "Hannity" viewers owned a Keurig machine, it would still represent a fraction of Keurig's consumer base", said CBS. Right now we are #BoycottKeurig Send emails, call and/or post on their Twitter TL.

None of the five companies that pulled ads directly cited Hannity's coverage, but most of their statements were made in Twitter threads responding to complaints about the companies' relationship with the Fox host.
