OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - #BoycottKeurig is trending on social media, after the company pulled its advertising from Fox News's Sean Hannity Show.
They are one of at least five companies that are no longer advertising their products during the show, including Nature's Bounty and Realtor.com.
Keurig announced their decision on Twitter in response to a tweet from the President of Media Matters for America. Angelo Carusone asked Keurig to reconsider their ads, saying that Sean Hannity defends Roy Moore, the Alabama senate candidate that has been accused of sexual assault.
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.— Keurig (@Keurig) November 11, 2017
Their decision elicited outrage on social media, with fans of Hannity using the hashtag "Boycott Keurig".
#BoycottKeurig because they have caved into liberal pressure and are pulling ads from Hannity’s show.— StraitcrzyMary (@straitcrzy) November 12, 2017
We will show them what over 100 million strong conservatives can do to their business.
Retweet and spread the word.
But others tweeted in support of Keurig:
Waking up seeing #BoycottKeurig is pretty disturbing to be honest. People are boycotting a company for pulling their ads away from someone who's an apologist of child molestation. Scary times.— Ricky Davila 🇵🇷 (@TheRickyDavila) November 12, 2017
Let’s make America great again by ensuring that pedophiles & their apologists don’t get a penny of our money. Don’t #BoycottKeurig.— Simar (@sahluwal) November 12, 2017
