Alabama Senate candidate, Roy Moore, was accused of initiating a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old when he was in his thirties, in addition to making advances on three other teenage girls. The Washington Post broke the story.
Many feel that Moore got too gentle a treatment from Sean Hannity, with comments like, “Every single person in this country deserves the presumption of innocence,” coming from the Fox News host.
Before long, companies announced they’d be no longer promoting their products on his show.
The one advertiser that pulled its funding from the show that Hannity’s fans got most angry at, however, was Keurig.
As a result, his viewers decided to launch a campaign against the coffee maker by uploading #BoyCottKeurig posts.
Many uploaded videos and photos of them destroying their Keurig coffee makers.
There was just a lot of hate for the coffee brand, with some people even going so far as to starting the “Keurig Smash Challenge.”
People got creative in their smashings.
Others are just straight throwing them in the garbage.
There’s a counter movement online, however, of people who are vowing to buy Keurigs now after the Hannity outrage.
Hannity, himself, seems to love these videos.
Twitter users pointed out that banning Keurig, along with other protests and crusades carried out by self-proclaimed ultra conservatives, is full of logical gaps.
