So… does anyone still consume Bud Light?
Conservatives and blue-collar Americans have had enough of the inexpensive beer and its parent company, Anheuser-Busch, ever since they collaborated with the offensive transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
This boycott against the Belgian beer brewer’s attack on the truth has, by almost any metric, been incredibly effective.
The executives who orchestrated this catastrophe were placed on leave. Sales plummeted. Particularly among conservative personalities, cachet was lost. Clearly, the brand had been tarnished.
However, they still have the support of the LGBT community, correct?
According to a recent Newsweek report, this is not the case.
Evidently, the alphabet oligarchy is furious that Anheuser-Busch and Bud Light attempted damage control following the disastrous Mulvaney partnership.
LGBT advocates reached this conclusion after Anheuser-Busch CEO Michel Doukeris disavowed any relationship with Mulvaney during a Thursday earnings call with investors.
Chicago gay bars are now boycotting Bud Light because Anheuser-Busch attempted to distance itself from Dylan Mulvaney after the disastrous collaboration.

“We need to clarify the facts that this was one can, one influencer, one post and not a campaign,” Doukeris told investors, stressing that “misinformation” was the real reason the Mulvaney backlash was so fierce.
In addition, Doukeris and Anheuser-Busch provided vendors and salespeople with “scripts” or talking points to counteract “misinformation.”
To clarify, the only tangible “misinformation” conveyed here is the notion that Dylan Mulvaney is anything other than a cross-dressing lunatic.
Incredibly, that tepid piece of spin from Doukeris was insufficient for conservatives and appears to have infuriated only the left.
“As far as marketing, I hope and think they realized that as a brand they will be extinct in a few years if they are not fully on the side of equality, as that is what the Gen Z consumer expects and demands,” Stacy Lentz, co-owner of New York City’s gay Stonewall Inn told Newsweek.
According to Lentz, the Mulvaney campaign (or lack thereof, according to Doukeris) “was not handled well.”
The Advocate, a pro-LGBT publication, launched the most severe attack on Bud Light from the left, with contributor John Casey calling for yet another boycott of the beleaguered brand.
“Anheuser-Busch, weakly, did not stand up against hate. And while boycotts don’t work, they do make a statement. It’s not Kid Rock and Ted Nugent who should be boycotting Bud Light — it should be us,” Casey wrote in mid-April.
If you enjoy schadenfreude, you’ll love everything about this.
In addition to any amusement derived from witnessing the left devour itself, there are several crucial lessons to be learned from this controversy.
Leave it to the left to attempt to seize control of a movement after it has already gained momentum. Conservatives, moderates, and any sane American who does not want to be told that up is down and men are women have already done the heaviest labor.
All of the aforementioned consequences? Similar to the Simpsons, conservatives were the first to do so.
Second, this entire fiasco should serve as a cautionary tale for other mega-conglomerates (such as Coca-Cola) moving forward. No matter how hard the media, entertainment, and social media try to make it appear that the world is filled with insane liberals and the LGBT agenda is pervasive, this is not the case.
