Thursday night, after sexual misconduct allegations came out against Judge Roy Moore, Alabama candidate for U.S. Senate, Fox News host Sean Hannity encouraged viewers not to rush to judgement against Moore without more facts.
Hannity did say that if the allegations are true, Moore should step aside and leave the Senate race.
“Every single person in this country deserves the presumption of innocence,” Hannity said. “With the allegations against Judge Moore, none of us know the truth of what happened 38 years ago. The only people that would know are the people involved in this incident.”
Friday night, Hannity interviewed Moore on his radio show, and now advertisers are pulling their ads and stating they will no longer advertise on his show with Fox News.
Responding to complaints on Twitter, Keurig said they will ask Fox News to stop airing their ads. “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,” Keurig tweeted.

Other companies have also confirmed they do not advertise on Hannity, while users are bombarding many companies on Twitter with demands that they pull their ads from Hannity’s show, claiming he is supporting a child molester.

.@Chewy New subscriber, love your service but disappointed you advertise on Hannity, whose defense of Roy Moore’s child molestation/sex assault is disgusting. Please pull your ads! #RayMooreChildMolester #FireHannity #GrabYourWallet

Good afternoon @Ford. Cadillac and many other companies removed their ads from Hannity’s show, but Ford still sponsors him. He is now defending child molester Roy Moore and attacking women that speak out. Please reconsider.

Hey @mitsucars Your ads on Sean Hannity of Fox News tells me that you support child molesters just like SH supported Roy Moore on his show last nite. Is this the image you want to portray to America? Sean Hannity is scum and responsible for most #fake news

.@IHOP most kids love IHOP. Most parents won’t want to take their kids knowing you pay for Sean Hannity to defend child-molesters. Stop buying ads on his show.

Good afternoon @scottevest. Your ads have run on Sean Hannity’s program. Many companies have ceased sponsoring his show, especially in light of his recent defense of child molester Roy Moore. Please reconsider your ads. cc @ScottevestCEO

You should remove your ads from Fox altogether. Hannity is just one Fox Network rat in sewer full of them.
