Sean Hannity said on his radio show on Monday that he had never heard of the Proud Boys, but he has featured the group's founder, Gavin McInnes, on his Fox News show and another member on his radio show in 2017.

As Media Matters pointed out, Hannity hosted "prominent Proud Boy" Jovi Val on his radio show in 2017, which allowed for Val and far-right conspiracy theorist Laura Loomer to discuss political violence at length.

"A viral video surfaced showing, in New York City, members of the group, which I've also never heard of, Proud Boys, some type of male chauvinist organization beating two or three protesters in New York City after an event at a Republican headquarters," said Hannity on the Oct. 15 episode of his radio program, "The Sean Hannity Show."
