In these politically divided times of ours, things have went from a discussion, to two sides yelling at each other to two sides who… one of them supports a 32 year old man dating a 14 year old? What the hell? Well, that’s what’s happening I guess. After Alabama candidate Roy Moore was revealed by the Washington Post to be a serial pursuer of girls as young as 14 when he was in his 30’s, the usual hard right machine began grinding out the same defenses now had to defend… a sex criminal. I see. So what does that have to do with the Keurig you ask? Well, Sean Hannity on his show made extremely gross comments implying that a relationship between a 32 year old and a 14 year old could be consensual, and continued to blame the victims.
As a result, Hannity, lost six sponsors, including Keurig’s, your office’s favorite way to make coffee that’s fine but at least doesn’t support sex criminals. So the alt right reacted to this as only they could — by buying a bunch of Keurigs and smashing them. Forget that it seems that Keurig is selling more coffee machines by not advertising than by advertising apparently, this is just— weird and dumb. Check it out.
