Five major companies have decided to distance themselves from Fox News host Sean Hannity by pulling their advertisements from his show in the wake of his support for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore and his attacks on the four women who accused Moore of sexual misconduct this week, whom he accused of lying for money.
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.

Fans of the Fox News host responded by calling for a boycott and even smashing their devices on video.
“I pulled an ‘Office Space’ with my Keurig…” tweeted New Jersey Marines veteran and life coach John Angelo Gage, along with a video of him taking a hammer to his Keurig. “Would be a shame if everyone else joined me in the Keurig Smash Challenge #BoycottKeurig #IStandWithHannity #SundayMorning”

This article really just captures the levels of incompetence and self-destruction on display by @seanhannity and his supporters with this whole anti-Keurig thing they're doing: https://t.co/Ug85rG8RrL pic.twitter.com/fjHX0YxVX3

To recap: So-called Christian conservatives are protesting the denouncement of a child molester, just like Jesus would've wanted. #BoycottKeurig

Think about this! Republicans are more outraged at a "coffee maker" than Sean Hannity saying a underage 14 yr old 8th grader consented to a sexual act with a 32 yr old man!
Let that sink in about Republican morals!#BoycottKeurig#SundayMorning pic.twitter.com/o2zX2w7UAw

Been to two different stores this morning to buy my @Keurig coffee machine & both are sold out.
Clearly #BoycottKeurig is working perfectly.

Maybe if Fox News viewers boycotted things they actually used I would take them seriously. Like Fixadent, Milk of Magnesia, and Walmart. #BoycottKeurig
