Sean Hannity is giving away 500 Keurig coffee makers after days after fans of the Fox News host destroyed their Keurig appliances amid an advertising dispute with the company. In a tweet replying to Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters, Keurig said it had "worked with our media partner and Fox News to stop our ad from airing during The Sean Hannity Show". Moore has been accused having an inappropriate relationship with a 14-year-old girl 40 years ago.

"To all of my supportive and devoted fans of the show, I am giving away 500 Keurig machines as a thank you for always standing by me", the "Hannity" host wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

In protest, some Twitter users posted videos of themselves destroying their Keurig coffee makers.

Critics of the interview said Hannity went too easy on Moore.

A page on Hannity's website allows fans to sign up to receive one of the free coffee makers. By Saturday, several companies - including Keurig, 23andMe, and E-Trade - announced they would pull their ads.

Keurig's CEO Bob Gamgort later expressed regret for the decision in an email sent to employees and obtained by the Washington Post.

Supporters of Hannity lashed out at Keurig on social media through the hashtag #BoycottKeurig. "We accept the apology of the Keurig C.E.O., and look forward to enjoying a nice cup of apolitical Joe".
