Hannity Thanks 'Deplorable Friends' for Boycotting Keurig

Conservatives have called for yet another frivolous boycott that they will likely come to regret; this time, against the Keurig Green Mountain brand coffee machines. The hashtags #BoycottKeurig and #IStandWithHannity quickly emerged on Twitter.

You are likely aware that Keurig became the focus of some media attention over the weekend related to a tweet issued from our official Twitter account on Friday.

On Saturday, Keurig announced on Twitter that it would no longer advertise on Hannity's show.

Others expressed amusement by the destruction of Keurig coffee makers, pointing out that conservatives wrecking machines had already paid for the appliance.

The choice to fuel attacks against a former advertiser is an odd one, especially for a host-and a network-that has struggled to retain many sponsors after controversy. A Washington Post story last week said Moore had romantic or sexual relationships with four teens, including a 14-year-old girl, when he was in his 30s.

Many carried the national white-and-red flag as others set off flares and firecrackers, filling the air with red smoke. Others spoke of defending Polish Christian values and standing up to liberals, Britain's The Independent reported.

He is accused of making inappropriate advances and having sexual contact with a 14-year-old.

And while some on the left dutifully took up arms, tweeting in support of Keurig, others just seemed bemused (or amused). Hannity later clarified that he misspoke. "With the allegations against Judge Moore, none of us know the truth of what happened 38 years ago". Many support Keurig's choice to pull their ads off Hannity's show, while others have pointed out how amusing it is that some people are even going so far as to buy new Keurig machines only to smash them.

Moore, then 32, first approached 14-year-old Leigh Corfman in early 1979 outside a courtroom in Etowah county, Alabama, it is reported. All the Clinton's crap & this is justice? No! Back in August, the liberal site called upon companies to withdraw their advertisements after Hannity defended President Donald Trump for his response to the deadly, race-fueled rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Hannity, himself, retweeted numerous messages.

What's your take on all of this - are people right to be mad at Keurig for pulling its ads from Hannity's show?

Previous boycotts of Fox News shows have proved devastating to hosts: Dozens of companies pulled their ads from Bill O'Reilly's show on Fox News after the New York Times revealed in April that Fox and O'Reilly had agreed to a series of secret settlements over harassment allegations. On the day that Fox News retracted an online report that lent credence to the theory, Hannity defiantly told his radio audience that he "retracted nothing".
