Keurig CEO Bob Gamgort sent out a memo saying his company did not mean to take sides on the issue regarding the Sean Hannity flap.
In the memo to his employees, Gamgort criticized the company decision to use Twitter to announce their withdrawal from Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“This gave the appearance of ‘taking sides’ in an emotionally charged debate that escalated on Twitter and beyond over the weekend, which was not our intent,” Gamgort explained in the memo, according to the Washington Post.

On Sunday, Keurig said they were pulling their ads from “Hannity,” after the host told his viewers not to jump to conclusion regarding the sexual allegation story by The Washington Post, claiming Roy Moore engaged in “sexual misconduct” with a 14 year old girl almost 40 years ago.
Hannity fans did not take this response from Keurig lightly and began smashing their Keurig coffee machines.

“I apologize for any negativity that you have experienced as a result of this situation and assure you that we will learn and improve going forward,” Gamgort concluded.
