Hannity Fans Are Smashing Their Keurig Machines And It’s Way Too Extra

After sponsors started pulling advertising on the Hannity Show following an interview with Roy Moore in which Sean Hannity appeared to defend Moore, conservative fans singled out Keurig in a “boycott” that involves literally destroying the popular coffee machines.

By now you’ve probably heard of the Roy Moore scandal. Moore, an Alabama Republican Senate Candidate has been accused by several women of having attempted to date and/or have sexual relations with underaged women, as young as 14, while he was in his 30s, decades ago.

When asked if he dated underage women in his 30s, he stated “not generally, no,” which let’s be honest, is a laughable answer.

Since the beginning of the scandal, people having been using Twitter to react. A few days ago, we saw #MeAt14 trending, in which women shared pictures of them at age 14 to raise awareness about the age of consent.

But now, Twitter’s involvement in the Moore scandal has evolved in way no one saw coming: to share videos of people smashing their Keurig coffee machines.

What does coffee have to do with Moore allegedly dating 14 year olds?

Well, Roy Moore was interviewed on the Hannity Show on Friday and some viewers, as well as the show’s sponsors, were disappointed in how defensive Hannity appeared to be of Moore. In response, five of the show’s sponsors pulled all their ads, including realtor.com, Nature’s Bounty, Eloquii, 23 and me, and Keurig.

You can’t have your Keurig and drink it too.

For some reason, fans of The Hannity Show were singled out Keurig for having boycotted the show, and in turn decided to “boycott” Keurig. Angelo John gage was the first to start the machine smashing trend is this post, which popularized #BoycottKeurig, #IStandWithHannity, and led to the #KeurigSmashChallenge.

Other conservatives have since joined in on turning their backs on the brand in a petty display of rage and shards of broken plastic.

People were quick to question the “boycott,” pointing out that they it wasn’t much of a boycott if they already had, and therefore paid for, the machines.

Whether or not this boycott makes sense, the whole situation is an FML for Keurig. With Christmas season coming up, this isn’t the best time to have an entire demographic of people actively campaigning against your product.

They're basically angry because someone they like faced consequences for defending molestation? Heckuva thing to fixate on. So is each smasher pro-molestation? new It's a good thing despite evil intentions though. Coffee pods are a tremendous waste of resources. Thank you for accidentally being environmentally responsible, you teen humping freaks!

The funny thing is that they will call Liberals "snowflake needing safe space". Look at them now, throwing a hissy fit over a business decision that doesn't affect them whatsoever and destroying their own property. I swear Foxnews viewers are stupid as sh*t.
