Over the weekend, Hannity fans showed their disdain for the Keurig brand by posting videos smashing the coffee makers. And some of them were rather creative.
Outrage over Keurig began on Thursday when the news broke about the allegations of sexual impropriety by Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.
Hannity first spoke about the accusations on his radio show then on his show on Fox News. He suggested — as others have — that there may be a political purpose, or that the accusers were coming forward for money.
On Thursday, the Fox News host spoke about the allegations against Roy Moore, the Alabama senate candidate who, The Washington Post had reported that day, made sexual advances toward teenage girls when he was in his early 30s, including a 14-year-old.
Mr. Hannity, describing those actions on his radio show while speaking with a co-host, Lynda McLaughlin, seemed to justify Mr. Moore’s reported conduct by calling one of the encounters “consensual.”
Later, on his television show, Mr. Hannity said that the statement “was absolutely wrong” and that he “misspoke.” He then brought up the possibility of accusers lying for money, or for political purposes.

Angelo, thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention. We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show.

Hannity’s fans reacted to the boycott with a boycott of their own.
They’ve decided to smash the Keurig machines.
Liberals are offended by this video of a Keurig being thrown off of a building.

What do you think of this protest?
Is it right or ridiculous?
Some criticize this boycott because the Keurig was already purchased, so they see it as pointless.
Others just find that that politicization of brands is just bizarre.
The year is 2050,
As the Brand Wars escalate, Keurig's military branch deploys the new Kinetic Umbrella Personnel Suppressor (KUPS) platform, which fires bucket-sized cylinders full of iron-carbide flechettes, decimating advancing Papa John's Coalition ground troops.

What do you think?
Are you still going to use your Keurig?
Or buy one if you don’t already have one?
Let us know in the comments.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
Wear this to the gym and I guarantee you’ll get some comments.
Oh, yes, Ladies, you can wear this shirt. Get yours here.
This is definitely one of the most politically incorrect t-shirts to ever hit the market. It will most certainly offend the entitled whiners!
Keep Calm and Don’t Be a Pussy!
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
