Conservatives smash Keurigs in Sean Hannity interview row

Conservatives smash Keurigs in Sean Hannity interview row”

The hashtag #BoycottKeurig trended all throughout Sunday on Twitter as the Fox News host's fans expressed their support.

Conservatives and fans of Hannity responded by calling for a boycott, with some even smashing their Keurig machines.

According to a memo sent to Keurig employees, Gamgort stated that the company should not have tweeted that it was ending it's advertising relationship with Hannity.

He interviewed Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore about claims he assaulted a 14-year-old girl.

Four other companies said they would stop running their ads on the Fox show, without explaining their decision.

Speaking on his radio show Thursday to executive producer Lynda McLaughlin, Hannity asked how one could "possibly tell, know the truth".

Critics of Hannity who took issue with his remarks - including one in which he argued that kissing between Moore, then 32, and a 14-year-old was "consensual" - and later applauded Keurig's decision to distance itself from his show.

Keurig, Realtor.com, DNA-testing service 23 and Me, plus-size clothing company Eloquii, and vitamin company Nature's Bounty all announced their decisions over the weekend. In particular, they're targeting Keurig, a company that produces home coffee makers. "Frankly, I think they were victims of this group that they knew nothing about", Hannity said, referring to Media Matters.

"Thank you, @Keurig, for doing the right thing and pulling your ads from Hannity's show".

A growing number of Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman Cory Gardner (R., Col.), have said Moore should step out of the race.

"Thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention". But Hannity later apologized on Twitter, saying he "misspoke" and was "not totally clear" in the exchange.

Six companies, including the popular beverage company Keurig, responded they are no longer advertising on Hannity.

This is not the first time Media Matters has pressed companies to pull advertising from Hannity's Fox News show.

The Moore campaign's statement said: 'Judge Roy Moore has endured the most outlandish attacks on any candidate in the modern political arena, but this story in today's Washington Post alleging sexual impropriety takes the cake.

The host's handling of the news coverage received backlash online, and prompted Keurig along with five other sponsors to pull their ads.

Remember, this is how it ended for Bill O'Reilly - not the sexual harassment lawsuits, the loss of sponsors.
