Hannity Calls for Keurig Protesters to Stand Down
FOX NEWS – Fox News’ Sean Hannity called Monday night for a “cease-fire,” asking fans to quit smashing their Keurig coffeemakers, after critics blasted the company for moving to pull its advertising from his show over his coverage of sexual assault accusations against U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.
“Please stop smashing your Keurig coffee machines,” Hannity said in his monologue Monday night, explaining that the coffee company was “a victim in all of this.”
Conservatives took to social media over the weekend to post videos of themselves throwing out, or destroying, their Keurig machines after the company tweeted Saturday that it “worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show.”
Hannity said the liberal group Media Matters for America was responsible for targeting his advertisers after critics said he seemed to defend Moore, who was accused last week of having sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl in 1979. Hannity said critics took his statements out of context.
