Keurig users are smashing their coffee makers in support of Fox News

By Sunday evening, the hashtag #BoycottKeurig was trending on Twitter.

He has also weathered previous boycott calls by Media Matters, partially by rallying his viewers and supporters, who started a #BoycottKeurig campaign over the weekend and shared videos of themselves destroying the coffee machines.

Five brands, including coffeemaker company Keurig, tweeted over the weekend that they would avoid advertising on Fox News' "Hannity".

Moore, 70, has been publicly accused in a deeply sourced report from the Washington Post of having sexually pursued multiple teenage girls while in his early 30s, including a particularly detailed allegation that he molested a 14-year-old. On a second visit, he took off her shirt and trousers and removed his clothes except for his underwear before touching her over her bra and underpants, Corfman told the Post.

During an interview with Hannity on his Friday radio show, Moore said he said dating teenagers was "not my customary behavior" at the time.

USA Today reported that Keurig, Realtor.com, 23 and Me, Eloquii, and Nature's Bounty pulled advertising from Hannity in response to his coverage of Senate candidate Roy Moore. "We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show", the tweet read.




Others expressed amusement by the destruction of Keurig coffee makers, pointing out that conservatives wrecking machines had already paid for the appliance.

Critics said Hannity had implied that a 14-year-old could give consent to sexual contact. "I want you to know the decision to communicate our short-term media actions on Twitter was done outside of company protocols".

Hannity said he misspoke and his comment was misinterpreted. I thought you just made coffee makers.

Six companies, including the popular beverage company Keurig, responded they are no longer advertising on Hannity.

A growing number of Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman Cory Gardner (R., Col.), have said Moore should step out of the race.

"Thanks for bringing this to our attention". More than 30 million Keurig coffee machines were sold between 2012-2015 alone, according to company financial statements. Gamgort reminded staffers that the company advertises on all the major cable channels, rather than just Fox News. Fox News swiftly ended its association with O'Reilly three weeks after the sexual harassment claims against him were revealed.
