After Keurig decided to pull its advertising from Fox News’ Hannity program over host Sean Hannity’s comments defending Roy Moore and casting doubt on his accuser, conservatives are attempting a campaign to boycott the coffee maker company.
Hannity has come under fire for his defense of Moore, who was outed by a Washington Post story for his past sexual misconduct involving teenage girls as young as 14 years old when he was in his 30’s, with many calling for advertisers — including Keurig — not to air their commercials during his program.
“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,” the company said online when media watchdog Media Matters for America notified Keurig of the matter.

Maybe if Fox News viewers boycotted things they actually used I would take them seriously. Like Fixadent, Milk of Magnesia, and Walmart. #BoycottKeurig

Think about this! Republicans are more outraged at a "coffee maker" than Sean Hannity saying a underage 14 yr old 8th grader consented to a sexual act with a 32 yr old man!
Let that sink in about Republican morals!#BoycottKeurig#SundayMorning pic.twitter.com/o2zX2w7UAw

Been to two different stores this morning to buy my @Keurig coffee machine & both are sold out.
Clearly #BoycottKeurig is working perfectly. 👌🏽
