Fox News personality Sean Hannity used his radio show on Monday to encourage his supporters to stop breaking their Keurig coffee machines in protest of a decision by the company to stop airing ads on Hannity's nightly television show.

The backlash began on Saturday, after Keurig responded on Twitter to an appeal from Angelo Carusone, president of the left-leaning media watchdog Media Matters for America. "We worked with our media partner and Fox News to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show," the company said on Twitter.

Hannity said the Keurig-smashing videos were funny, but that the coffee-maker was duped by Media Matters.

Hannity said he's been targeted by groups like Media Matters for about a year, but that the effort picked up over the weekend in response to his coverage of the allegations of sexual misconduct lodged last week against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. 

"They're basically the hired guns of censorship," he said of Media Matters. "The goal at the end of the day is to silence every conservative voice that they possibly can." He defended his Moore coverage by saying: "I believe in the presumption of innocence for every American."

Hannity repeated what Carusone told The Hollywood Reporter on Monday afternoon: that Keurig is not actually a major advertiser on his show. Also, Keurig is not the only company that has publicly pledged to either discontinue advertising on Hannity's show or to make sure that existing protocols against advertising on the show were working.
