The hashtag #standwithannity and the variant #istandwithhannity, #boycottkeurig, and #keurig are among the top trending hashtags promoted by these accounts.
The Russian influence linked accounts-some of which are bots, some individuals-are amplifying Gage's message against Keurig and those of other Hannity supporters who posted videos of themselves across social media demolishing the company's single-serve coffee machines.
Other companies who pulled support from Hannity include Realtor.com and fashion brand Eloquii-though neither have received the same amount of social media attention as Keurig.
Fox News host Sean Hannity thanked his "deplorable" fans Sunday night for showing their support by boycotting companies that pulled their advertisements from "Hannity" in the wake of the host's controversial interview with Senate candidate Roy Moore (R-Ala.). A Washington Post story last week said Moore had romantic or sexual relationships with four teens, including a 14-year-old girl, when he was in his 30s. In covering the allegations, Hannity―along with one of his guests, attorney Mercedes Colwin―questioned the motives of Moore's accuser, speculating that she might have been lying and that she might be doing so for money. It's "He said, she [said]", Hannity said on his radio show last Thursday.
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.
Sunday morning, a video of a man tossing his Keurig coffee machine from a second-story balcony made the (g) rounds.
He is accused of making inappropriate advances and having sexual contact with a 14-year-old.
Later, on his television show, Mr. Hannity said that the statement "was absolutely wrong" and that he "misspoke". Moore has vehemently and repeatedly denied the allegations. Just three months ago, Media Matters called for a boycott of the show - which led to Cadillac and E-Trade pulling their ads - after Hannity's response to the protests in Charlottesville, where he turned the white supremacists acts into a diatribe against those who would, "bludgeon the president and conservatives politically".
This is not the first time Media Matters has pressed companies to pull advertising from Hannity's Fox News show. Right now we are #BoycottKeurig Send emails, call and/or post on their Twitter TL. But the sponsors seemed unlikely to return to "The O'Reilly Factor", the family of Rupert Murdoch, which controls Fox and 21st Century Fox, concluded.
