Keurig and other companies pull ads from 'Hannity' following Roy Moore interview

Advertisers ditching Fox News' 'Hannity' after coverage of Roy Moore's sexual misconduct allegations

In a controversial interview, Sean Hannity appeared to come to Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's defense in the wake of a Washington Post report alleging Moore molested a 14-year-old girl.

Coffeemaker company Keurig, Realtor.com, ELOQUII, 23andMe, Nature's Bounty, and E*Trade all announced over the weekend that they had no plans to advertise on the Fox News show.

Moore, who spoke with Hannity about the scandal on his radio show Friday, did admit however that after his return from the military, 'I dated a lot of young ladies'.

Moore, 70, is accused of pursuing several relationships with teenagers while he was in his 30s - allegations he has continued to deny.

Advertisers began fleeing from Fox News' "Hannity" following the conservative host's much-criticized coverage of Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore's sexual misconduct allegations.

'While we continually strategize on where we advertise on and offline, we are not now, and will not be running TV ads on Hannity, ' Realtor.com posted, as well. Not only has Keurig chose to bail on Sean's show, but Realtor.com has also pulled their ads, according to The New York Daily News.

None of the companies mentioned Moore by name, but did announce on Twitter that their ads would no longer be running during the Sean Hannity Show.

Hannity maintains some of the strongest ratings in cable news, and has weathered previous boycott calls by Media Matters partially by rallying his viewers and supporters.

This ultimately inspired the trending hashtag, which has now received over 34.3 thousand tweets.

On Saturday, the host retweeted several memes of users expressing support for him, and some Hannity fans have went even further, starting a #BoycottKeurig campaign and sharing videos of people destroying the coffee machines. The most recent polls show Moore and Democratic opponent Doug Jones in a dead heat race.
