Coffee brewer manufacturer Keurig become embroiled in controversy over the weekend when it caves to leftist smears against Sean Hannity and pulled their ads from his show, and conservatives aren’t going to be too happy upon hearing how the company reacted to the backlash.

Keurig’s move caused widespread outrage among Hannity’s loyal fan base, with thousands of people taking to social media to post videos of themselves destroying their once beloved brewers. In fact, the backlash was so severe that the #BoycottKeurig hashtag was the top national trend on Twitter for an entire day following the company’s decision, as this reporter documented for the Right Wing Tribune.

For those unaware, the controversy stems from the president of Media Matters for America, a George Soros-funded propaganda factory, Angelo Caruso, purposefully misquoting Hannity as defending child molesters and rapists after he misspoke during his radio broadcast on Friday. Hannity has since clarified his remarks, and even CNN’s Jake Tapper acknowledged that he wasn’t even remotely defending child molesters, but that still didn’t stop Keurig from caving to the left’s demands.

After the backlash from Americans who are tired of virtual leftist lynch mobs silencing everything they disagree with, Keurig finally caved and apologized for the incident. However, their apology wasn’t directed at Hannity or his supporters, but instead to the company’s employees.

Why?

According to the Daily Caller, the company’s CEO Bob Gamgort was sorry for “any negativity” they may have experienced.

Seriously.

From the Caller:

In a memo leaked to Erik Wemple of The Washington Post, Keurig’s Gamgort apologized to his employees for the way the situation was handled.

“The decision to publicly communicate our programming decision via our Twitter account was highly unusual,” Gamgort wrote. “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 assured the employees that it was outside of protocol for Keurig to announce the ad pulls on Twitter and would make sure “this never happens again.”

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

Lovely, eh?

It doesn’t appear as if Keurig is interested in winning back its conservative customers. From a business standpoint, it’s a horrible idea to alienate at least half of the people willing to buy your products.

But then again, leftists rarely let things like common sense or logic get in their way when they’re pursuing their agenda.
