Volvo is reportedly joining coffee company Keurig, DNA-testing service 23andMe, and plus-size clothing brand Eloquii in pulling its advertising from Sean Hannity's prime-time Fox News show.

"We have spoken with our media agency and have advised them to cease advertising on the show," the Monday tweet from the car company said, The Hill reported.

The tweet, however, has been taken down; screen grabs were posted by both The Hill and TV Newser.

Though Realtor.com also decided it also would yank its advertising on "Hannity," the company has backtracked, Ad Age reported.

The advertising angst comes in the wake of Hannity's coverage of Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct — allegations he has denied.

Last Thursday, Hannity said viewers should not rush to judgment.

"Every single person in this country deserves the presumption of innocence," Hannity said, The Hill reported. "With the allegations against Judge Moore, none of us know the truth of what happened 38 years ago. The only people that would know are the people involved in this incident."

The Fox News host added Moore "should step aside and leave the Senate race" if the allegations are true.

Hannity has also interviewed Moore on his radio program after the news of the accusations broke in The Washington Post.

None of the advertisers said they were pulling their ads because of Hannity's coverage of the allegations, The Hill noted.
