'Hannity' fans boycott Keurig for pulling ads over Moore coverage

'Hannity' fans boycott Keurig for pulling ads over Moore coverage

In a memo to employees on Monday, obtained by The Washington Post's Erik Wemple, CEO Bob Gamgort called Keurig's decision to explain its plan to "pause" its advertising with Hannity's show "highly unusual" and "outside of company protocols". During a speech in September 2016, Clinton said, "You could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables". The hashtags #BoycottKeurig and #IStandWithHannity quickly emerged on Twitter.

"Thanks for bringing this to our attention".

None of the companies mentioned Moore by name, but did announce on Twitter that their ads would no longer be running during the Sean Hannity Show.

Business Insider has reached out to several other advertisers who have run ads on Hannity's show over the past few months, asking them for their stances and whether they plan to advertise with him in the future.

Not everyone is joining in on destroying perfectly good (and not low-priced!) coffee makers, however. He had asked the company to reconsider its sponsorship of Hannity's show. She told The Post that Moore took her to his house and touched her sexually. The age of consent in Alabama is 16.

After Hannity expressed his hope that Moore and others accused of assault were given the benefit of the doubt, Twitter user Angelo Carusone reached out to Keurig, saying, "you are now sponsoring Sean Hannity's show". Gambgort also noted that Hannity "later apologized for his comments in his own tweet", claiming he "misspoke".

Hannity also advised his viewers and listeners not to "rush to judgment" about the allegations and speculated that Moore's alleged contact with teenagers could've been consensual. Yet conservative fans responded by expressing outrage with Keurig's decision, prompting the #BoycottKeurig hashtag and posting videos of themselves destroying their Keurig machines. Accuser Leigh Corfman's account that Moore made sexual advances on her has been confirmed by her mother and an ex-boyfriend who she told about the incident.

"Yes of course. Frankly accusations from 40 yrs ago".

Just in time for Christmas! District of Columbia police say Rich died in a botched robbery near his home in Washington a year ago.

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.

Another day, another advertising mess at Fox News.

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