Han­nity fans smash­ing Keurigs

Lethbridge Herald - - HEADLINE NEWS ✦ WEATHER -

Sup­port­ers of con­ser­va­tive host Sean Han­nity’s Fox News Chan­nel show are re­spond­ing to a de­ci­sion by Keurig to stop ad­ver­tis­ing on the show by smash­ing Keurig cof­fee mak­ers.

The com­pany an­nounced Satur­day it had pulled ad­ver­tis­ing from “Han­nity” af­ter sev­eral Twit­ter users ques­tioned the com­pany’s sup­port for the host, cit­ing Han­nity’s cov­er­age of sex­ual mis­con­duct al­le­ga­tions against Repub­li­can U.S. Se­nate can­di­date Roy Moore of Alabama. Moore is ac­cused of hav­ing sex­ual con­tact with a 14-year-old girl four decades ago when he was in his 30s.

It’s un­clear when Keurig stopped ad­ver­tis­ing on “Han­nity.” The Water­bury, Ver­mont, com­pany didn’t re­spond to a re­quest for fur­ther com­ment Mon­day.

The move prompted sev­eral peo­ple to de­stroy Keurig prod­ucts in protest and post videos to so­cial me­dia. Blog­ger An­gelo John Gage pro­moted what he called the “Keurig Smash Chal­lenge” while post­ing a video of him­self tak­ing a ham­mer to his brewer.
