Recently, fans of the Sean Hannity show have been taking to social media to engage in a major protest against the famous coffee maker, Keurig. Earlier this week, Keurig tweeted that it would be ending advertising with Hannity for reasons concerning the Roy Moore controversy.
“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,’” according to Fox News.
Now, in a major move that surprised a lot of fans, Hannity is calling for fans to stop destroying their machines. He appreciated their support and also announced he would be buying replacement machines for his fans that destroyed their Keurigs in protest!
According to Fox, Hannity said Keurig was “preyed upon by the most anti-free speech, pro-censorship group in the United States today. It is a group that is bought and paid for by friends and supporters of the Clintons and as you may have seen, the radical leftist group Media Matters for America.” He also said Media Matters “launched yet another smear campaign against me to try to get me thrown off the air and get rid of all my advertisers.”
Hannity did admit that Keurig did make a mistake in the situation, however, he noted that the CEO admitted it. Earlier this week, a memo was sent to the entire company from Keurig’s CEO, Bob Gamgort. In his message, he explained that their advertising on Fox will continue and that he “apologizes for any negativity that you have experienced as a result of this situation and assure you that we will learn and improve going forward.”
