Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is calling for a boycott of DirectTV after the cable provider dropped One American News Network from its lineup.

Sen. Paul was responding after DirectTV confirmed that it would not be renewing its contract with OANN.

The news outlet is known for being very conservative and pro-Trump and saw a bump in viewers around the 2020 election when many abandoned Fox News.

The news of the separation was first revealed by Bloomberg News on Sunday.

"We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires,” a spokesperson for DirectTV told the NY Daily News.

Paul blasted the cable provider over the news, revealing he is canceling his DirectTV contract and urging others to follow his lead.

"@DIRECTV is cancelling @OANN so I just cancelled my home Direct TV," tweeted Paul.

"Why give money to people who hate us?"

The tweet was very popular with Paul's 3.4 million followers, garnering tens of thousands of likes and retweets.

The decision will be devastating to OANN since DirectTV was their largest TV programming distributor.

Their broadcasting agreement will end in April.

Since the network expanded its audience in the Trump era, OANN has come under attack from the Left.

Shortly after the 2020 election, OANN's official account was suspended from YouTube.

The network allegedly violated the social media giant’s policy about "misinformation."

One poll in Feb. 2021 found that many supporters of President Donald Trump have turned away from Fox News as their trusted source of news.

OANN was one of two networks they turned to in place of Fox News, Newsmax being the other.

While Fox News has reclaimed its coveted top ratings spot among cable news channels, its competitor CNN has seen a massive drop in ratings since the rioting at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 in 2021.
