Fox News Host Sean Hannity has lost 11 of his sponsors following his defense of Roy Moore. Last week, Moore was accused of initiating sexual contact with a minor. At least five alleged victims have come forward with similar stories of Moore's behavior.
Sean Hannity has now lost 11 corporate sponsors since his Thursday segment questioning the motives of women who have accused men like Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct. On Monday, Hebrew National, Volvo, Hubble Contacts and Reddi Wip joined the DNA testing service 23andMe and Nature’s Bounty, who said they were withdrawing ads from Hannity’s primetime Fox News show, in addition to the previously announced moves by Keurig, Realtor.com and the plus-size fashion label Eloquii. Meanwhile, two other advertisers, HelloFresh and TripAdvisor, clarified that any ads that run during his show were done in “error.” Another one-time Hannity advertiser, E-Trade, also issued a statement insisting that it has not run ads on the show in months.
Sean Hannity struck back against Keurig by sponsoring a contest where people destroyed their Keurigs while taping it. If one needed any further evidence that the Bannon wing of the Republican wing was just a rebranding of hateful nihilism, these videos will make do.
