Sean Hannity Viewers Smash Their Keurig Coffee Makers To Support An Accused Pedophile
Over the past two years, Fox News host Sean Hannity has become a mouthpiece for the Trump White House. He’s so in the tank for the president, he still supports the Trump-backed Alabama senatorial candidate Judge Roy Moore.
Four women have recently come forward saying Moore pursued them sexually when they were between the ages of 14 and 18 and Moore was in his 30s.
During Hannity’s radio show, he remarked to show producer Lynda McLaughlin that Moore’s encounter with a 14-year-old girl was “consensual.”
Hannity’s comment implied that a teenage girl can consent to statutory rape and that pedophilia is somehow more acceptable if the victim gives consent.
Sean Hannity thinks a 30-something-year-old can have consentual sex with a 14-year-old child… @FoxNews, why does he still have a job???— William LeGate (@williamlegate) November 10, 2017
Hannity’s handling of the Moore scandal prompted four companies, including coffee maker Keurig, to pull their advertising from his show on Fox News. Somehow, Keurig’s stance against pedophilia caused outrage among many of Hannity’s viewers who decided to smash their Keurigs and post the videos to social media under #BoycottKeurig and #IStandWithHannity.

While the actions of Hannity’s viewers are morally confusing — and that’s putting it nicely — the act of destroying a Keurig coffee maker is clearly a great thing for the environment. Compared with a normal coffee maker, which uses a biodegradable filter for an entire pot of coffee, Keurigs use single-serving plastic K-Cups that aren’t biodegradable.
In 2013, near the height of the Keurig craze, Keurig Green Mountain produced 8.3 billion K-Cups — enough to circle the Earth 10.5 times. By 2015, over 60 billion K-Cups had gone into landfills.
The environmental damage caused by K-Cups pushed the city of Hamburg, Germany, to become the first city in the world to ban Keurigs in all government offices. Fortunately, the Keurig’s popularity has began to decline. Last year, the company announced it had sold 7% fewer machines during the 2015 holiday season than in the previous year, signaling a potential end to the single-serving trend. While Hannity’s audience is clearly on the wrong side of the issue, by destroying their Keurigs, they’re actually helping the environment — and that’s something conservatives haven’t supported for a long time.
