Five companies have now said they will not advertise on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show anymore which has caused a conservative backlash on social media.
Keurig, Realtor.com, 23 and Me, Eloquii and Nature’s Bounty have all pulled their ads due to Hannity’s coverage of the sexual misconduct claims against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.
Washing Post published an article last week that alleged Moore had romantic and sexual relationships with four teenage girls when he was in his 30s. Moore has denied the reports though did go on to say that he never dated someone young without her mother’s permission.
Hannity asked his viewers to give Moore the benefit of the doubt when it came to the allegations.
The companies that have dropped Hannity’s popular and conservative show announced their decisions on Twitter.
While the companies did not cite Hannity’s coverage of the Moore scandal as their reasoning, they only made the decision to drop the show after the Moore episode and the ensuing backlash that followed.
