Sean Hannity fans call for boycott as 3 sponsors pull ads

Sean Hannity fans call for boycott as 3 sponsors pull ads

This has inflamed Hannity's fans on Twitter, who've been calling for nationwide boycotts of those companies in retaliation.

"Figured I'd let Keurig and all these other companies know we don't believe in your fake outrage being portrayed as some kind of virtual-signaling morality test", one man said in a video posted on Twitter.

The #BoycottKeurig hastag was a top trending subject Sunday on Twitter. "We worked with our media partner and Fox [N] ews to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show".

"I don't want people losing their jobs because sales dropped so dramatically because conservatives don't want to buy their machines", Hannity said, adding that he is going to give away "500 coffee machines" to his supporters.

But as he did last week, Hannity changed his tune by the time he went on TV. Moore also threatened to sue The Post. The age of consent in Alabama is 16.

Using the interview as a springboard, the liberal Media Matters for America site targeted Hannity's advertisers, including Keurig.

Hannity later backstepped on those comments, saying he "misspoke," but continued to say that the accusers may be lying for money. Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said last week that Moore should step aside if the allegations are true.

Moore, then 32, first approached 14-year-old Leigh Corfman in early 1979 outside a courtroom in Etowah county, Alabama, it is reported. Guilty. Where's the justice?

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

Just in time for Christmas!

Hannity had propagated a widely discredited theory that Rich was shot and killed because he had supplied DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

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.

Nevertheless, Hannity's defense of Moore sparked social media backlash, and advertisers responded to complaints by vowing not to appear on his Fox News show. The website's parent company is owned by Rupert Murdoch - the head of Fox News and it's subsidiaries. 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". And that came just a month after more than two dozen advertisers left Bill O'Reilly's Fox News show following sexual harassment allegations against him.
