Sean Hannity's continued promotion of alleged child molester Roy Moore of Alabama has advertisers dropping him like a hot potato. A campaign by Hannity supporters (aka Russian bOts) with the hashtag #BoycottKeurig has instead turned into widespread ridicule.
If you logged onto Twitter today, you might have noticed that a number of users are calling for a boycott of Keurig. That's because the coffee company decided it would pull ads from Fox News's Hannity following the pundit's coverage of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. In response, some conservatives have gotten the hashtag #BoycottKeurig trending.
Keurig made the announcement Saturday. Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters for America, tweeted "Good afternoon @Keurig. You are currently sponsoring Sean Hannity's show. He defends child molester Roy Moore and attacks women who speak out against sexual harassment. Please reconsider." In response, Keurig tweeted back that it had worked with its media partner and Fox News to stop its advertising from running during The Sean Hannity Show. Another company, Realtor.com, also announced that it would no longer advertise on the Fox show, as reported by The Hill.
Angelo, thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention. We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show.
