Fox News' Hannity Fights Back, Rallies Reverse Boycott Of Keurig Brand

Posted November 14, 2017

A trending topic on Twitter right now happens to be #BoycottKeurig, and the reasoning has to do with Fox News and their lovable (LOL) host Sean Hannity.

Single-serving coffee-maker Keurig is in hot water with "Hannity" fans.

Keurig Green Mountain announced it wouldn't run ads during the show Saturday, after the host defended Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore amid allegations that he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl several years ago, and perused relationships with other teenagers. Three other women said he dated or asked them out on dates when they were teens and he was in his early 30s.

Hannity urged his viewers not to rush to judgment concerning the claims against Moore. On a second visit, he took off her shirt and trousers and removed his clothes except for his underwear before touching her over her bra and underpants, Corfman told the Post.

During his Thursday radio show, Hannity appeared to accidentally characterize Moore's conduct as "consensual" even though his accuser was a 14-year-old girl.

Six companies have either pulled ads or publicly distanced themselves from Fox News' Hannity after the host was criticized for an interview with Republican Alabama Senate candidate and accused child molester Roy Moore.

Keurig is among five USA firms that said they would pull ads from The Sean Hannity Show after the host was accused of going easy on an alleged abuser.

U-Tennessee Sacks Saugatuck's Butch Jones as Grid Coach
He can certainly provide a steadying hand, drawing on previous head coaching experience at Ball State, San Diego State and MI . As bad as the season has gone, UT still has a slim chance at bowl eligibility; it must win both its remaining games.

Eurozone growing at quickest pace in 10 years, European Union forecast says
Greece's economy is growing again, and the recovery is expected to strengthen as investment rebounds and consumption growth rises. In its Autumn Forecast report, the Commission said Ireland's GDP will then slow to 3.9 percent in 2018 and 3.1 percent in 2019.

Cooling temperatures and approaching rain chances
Rain chances will end Wednesday night , as temperatures drop to the low 40s in Austin and mid to upper 30s in the Hill Country. Thursday will be cool and crisp with mostly sunny skies and temps ranging from 47 in the morning to 61 in the afternoon.

Not everyone is joining in on destroying perfectly good (and not affordable!) coffee makers, however. "They never said he did - there was no sexual - there was kissing involved, and then they're saying this one encounter with a 14-year-old", he said last week on his radio show. "And there's, I just, I don't know how you find out the truth".

On Monday, Realtor.com deleted an initial tweet about pulling the ads, and Keurig's CEO apologized for "taking sides" in the debate over Moore.

Angelo, thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention.

Meanwhile, Moore has said the allegations against him are "fake news", and that a lawsuit will be filed over the Washington Post report that detailed alleged incidents.

This is not the first time Media Matters has pressed companies to pull advertising from Hannity's Fox News show.

Other companies posted similar statements to Twitter.

Similarly, back in April, BMW, Mitsubishi, Hyundai and Lexus were some of the brands that pulled their ads from Bill O'Reilly's show The O'Reilly Factor, following a wave of sexual harassment allegations were made against him.
