Why Hannity Fans Are Smashing Their Keurigs

By Neat Pour Staff |

Lots of our barista buddies have dark dreams of smashing Keurig coffee machines. Now, the internet is awash with images of the controversial single cup brewing systems being destroyed–but, the destruction’s not inspired by qualms about coffee quality or waste & the environment. No, the carnage cafe is the work of Sean Hannity supporters angry about Keurig’s decision to pull advertising from the right-wing pundit’s radio and television shows.

The brew-haha began when Hannity appeared to defend embattled Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore. Last week, a Washington Post story quoted four women who said that Moore pursue relationships with them while they were teenagers in the 70’s and 80’s. The youngest accuser was 14 -years-old at the time of alleged encounters.

Moore then appeared on Hanity’s show to defend himself, stating “Not generally no” after Hannity asked him whether he dated teenagers while in his 30’s. “I’m not going to dispute anything, but I don’t remember anything like that,” he told the host. “I don’t remember dating any girl without the permission of her mother.”

Hannity cautioned his viewers not to pass immediate judgement, questioned the accusers’ motivations, and in one gaffe, accidentally labeled the alleged relationships as “consensual.”

Eloquii, 23 and Me, Nature’s Bounty, and Keurig all pulled their advertising in response. However, the coffee company seems to be taking the brunt of the alt-right backlash. Hashtags like #KeurigSmashChallenge and #BoycottKeurig quickly spring up on social media.

However, let’s put politics aside and enjoy these, admittedly entertaining, videos of Keurig’s getting smashed.

Of course, critics of Hannity (and child molestation have some solid responses also.)

But, of course, fans of good coffee are laughing hardest of all…
