After #BoycottKeurig started trending on Twitter over the weekend, the coffee machine company's CEO Bob Gamgort has expressed regret in an email to employees obtained by The Washington Post. Yet conservative fans responded by expressing outrage with Keurig's decision, prompting the #BoycottKeurig hashtag and posting videos of themselves destroying their Keurig machines.

Fox News host Sean Hannity found himself in hot water last week after he defended Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore after he was accused of having multiple sexual encounters with teen girls - one of whom was 14 at the time of her assault - while he was in his 30s. Accuser Leigh Corfman's account that Moore made sexual advances on her has been confirmed by her mother and an ex-boyfriend who she told about the incident.

Hannity urged his viewers not to rush to judgment concerning the claims against Moore.

"Every single person in this country deserves the presumption of innocence", Hannity said Thursday on his Fox News show.

"And consensual, that's true", said Hannity.

"Thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention".

What's your take on all of this - are people right to be mad at Keurig for pulling its ads from Hannity's show?

"Since I got all this time on Sundays, boycotting my once-beloved National Football League, I figured I'd let Keurig and all these other companies know we don't believe in your fake outrage", said Twitter user @montgomerychamp in footage he took of himself before he smashed his personal caffeine crafter with a hammer. Besides Keurig, only four other companies have abandoned his program.

As bad as the season has gone, UT still has a slim chance at bowl eligibility; it must win both its remaining games. Hoke was serving as the defensive line coach at Tennessee and was the head coach at MI before Jim Harbaugh .

Nevertheless, Hannity's defense of Moore sparked social media backlash, and advertisers responded to complaints by vowing not to appear on his Fox News show. 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.
