Hannity Demands Roy Moore Explain 'Inconsistencies' or 'Get Out' of Senate Race

Other companies including Keurig announced they would stop advertising on Hannity's show, but later reversed course.

Moore said in a previous interview with Hannity that he did not "generally" remember dating teenagers as an adult, and said "I don't remember dating any girl without the permission of her mother". "We accept the apology of the Keurig CEO, and look forward to enjoying a nice cup of apolitical Joe".

Tuesday night Hannity had had enough.

Keurig and other companies faced pressure to pull their ads following Hannity's interview with Roy Moore, the Senate candidate in Alabama who is facing allegations he engaged in sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old girl and pursued several teenagers while he was in his 30s.

"You must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistency", Hannity said, demanding "remove any doubt".

Earlier on Tuesday, the Republican National Committee scrapped a joint fundraising agreement with Moore's campaign and top party leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have urged him to step aside.

It's unclear when Keurig stopped advertising on "Hannity".

Moore had denied knowing his fifth accuser, Brenda Young Nelson, however in a press conference Monday in New York, Nelson had held up her 1977 high school yearbook showing Moore's signature.

Also, Hannity played tape of Moore saying an accuser who was flanked by attorney Gloria Allred made allegations about him that were "absolutely false", adding that he did not know the woman.

"If you can't do this, then Judge Moore needs to get out of this race", he said.

Companies including the Keurig coffee machine makers and Volvo vehicle manufacturers have pulled their adverts from Hannity's show in the wake of his comments about Moore.

Under the hashtag #boycottkeurig and #IStandWithHannity fans fought back to Friday's announcement by Keurig, posting videos of themselves destroying their coffee makers.
