Keurig Caves to Media Matters, Faces Boycott Backlash from Outraged Sean Hannity Fans After Dropping Ads
Keurig Caves to Media Matters, Faces Boycott Backlash from Outraged Sean Hannity Fans After Dropping Ads

At least five major companies said over the weekend that they will no longer advertise their products during Fox News’ “Hannity” television show, which sparked an outpouring on Sunday of counter-protests on social media.

Keurig, Realtor.com, 23 and Me, Eloquii and Nature’s Bounty all pulled their ads from the television show, in response to Fox host Sean Hannity’s coverage of the sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Last week, a Washington Post article published an article suggesting Moore had romantic or sexual relationships with four teenage girls when he was in his 30s, allegations which the candidate has vigorously denied. In the wake of the Post report, Hannity asked his viewers to give Moore the benefit of the doubt.

On Twitter, the companies announced their decision to discontinue showing their ads during Hannity’s show — one of Fox News’ most highly rated programs that is wildly popular with conservative audiences.

“We can confirm that we do not have advertisements running on this program,” Nature’s Bounty said on Twitter Friday.

“Good afternoon @Keurig. You are currently sponsoring Sean Hannity’s show. He defends child molester Roy Moore and attacks women who speak out against sexual harassment. Please reconsider.”

“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 posted their Customer Care phone number in replies to concerned customers, “Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Linds. We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show. Please reach out to our Customer Care team at 866-901-2739. They will be happy to assist you with your brewer.”

These companies are just the latest to distance themselves from Hannity’s program.

In August, Media Matters called on companies that bought ad spots during Hannity’s show to stop financially supporting the host. The following month, Cadillac pulled its commercials from the Fox News show due to Hannity’s response to violence at rally held by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia.

E-Trade also pulled its advertisements from the show.

The most recent string of companies to pull their ads from Hannity has prompted the hashtag #BoycottKeurig, which was a top trending subject on Twitter. Fans of Hannity’s show and its host criticized Keurig and the other brands for taking a political stance.

In fact, a number of the host’s supporters said that they would be returning Keurig machines they had purchased for holiday gifts, and would no longer buy products from the brand.

Meanwhile, those who voiced support for Keurig’s decision to cut ties with Hannity praised the company and said they would be more apt to purchase goods from the brand.

And there is a #BoycottKeurig hashtag campaign:

Mainstream media has lost its credibility, now shoveling gossip

The pulled ads angered Hannity supporters who launched the #BoycottKeurig movement online. They also warned that the coffee machine maker should brace for sagging sales.
