Sean Hannity, the host of the Fox New Channel’s Sean Hannity Show, has lost at least five different advertisers after he has continued to promote a conspiracy theory about Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee staffer who was murdered in 2016.
As reported by BuzzFeed News, the Washington Post, and other outlets, Hannity has been spreading a theory that the Clintons ordered Rich’s killing to seek revenge for reportedly leaking Democratic National Committee emails to Wikileaks. His theory contradicts police, who said Rich’s death was a result of a robbery, according to BuzzFeed.
In light of Hannity’s theory, at least five different advertisers have cut ties. Fortune has reached out to each of the following companies for confirmation.

In an interview with The Huffington Post on Wednesday, Hannity said the ad shifts represented efforts by progressives to silence him. “There’s nothing that I did, nothing that I said, except they don’t like my position politically,” he said. “They’ll try to ratchet up the intensity of their rationale. It does not justify an attempt to get me fired. And that’s what this is. This is an attempt to take me out. This is a kill shot.”
