Conservatives are publicly destroying their Keurig coffee makers in response to the company’s decision to pull its advertisements from Sean Hannity’s television and radio programs.

At least five companies, including Keurig, have said they will no longer advertise their products on Hannity’s shows following the host’s coverage of Roy Moore. The Alabama GOP Senate candidate has been accused of sexual misconduct with several teens, including a 14-year-old girl, The Washington Post reported.
Hannity retweeted some of the Keurig destruction videos on Sunday and hinted that he was purchasing 500 coffee makers of an unnamed brand “to give away” to those who made such clips.
Deplorable friends, I am buying 500 coffee makers tomorrow to give away!! Details on radio and TV. Hint; best videos!!

Many responded to the trend with a mixture of indifference or support:
“How was your day?”
“I destroyed my coffee maker because the company that made it stopped advertising on a show where the host defended a child molester.”

Destroying your Keurig because the company took a stand against pedophelia is a great idea. Caffeine is clearly clouding your judgement.

Folks, you don't actually need the Keurig Coffee Maker, though.
You can get just as much coffee by squeezing the k-cups with your hands.
(In other news, good on Keurig, but those cups are still an environmental catastrophe)
