John Rich, a country music singer, is looking for a new beer that will replace Bud Light at his Nashville bar after the backlash against Dylan Mulvaney’s partnership with Anheuser–Busch.
Dylan Mulvaney, a 26-year-old biological male, has nearly 11 million TikTok followers for his “Days of Girlhood” video series. Mulvaney claims that he is a woman, despite not having undergone gender reassignment. Critics consider Mulvaney’s impersonation of a woman to be aiding in the erasure and destruction of women.
After launching a promotional partnership, the transgender social media star created a stir last Wednesday. The influencer was sent a Bud Light can featuring Mulvaney’s name on it by the beer company.
Rich asked his over 900,000 followers on Twitter to vote: “Are you thirsty for a Bud Light right now?” More than 30,000 of Rich’s followers voted. 97.5% replied, “Hell Naw,” while only 2.5% answered, “Yep.”
Rich suggested a boycott of Bud Light Wednesday and asked his Twitter followers: “What beer should my Redneck Riviera in Nashville replace Bud Light?”
Rich started the Redneck Riviera restaurant and bar in Nashville, Tennessee.
Bud Light also reacted to Travis Tritt, a fellow country music singer, this week.
“I will be deleting all Anheuser-Busch products from my tour hospitality rider. Tritt stated Wednesday that he knows many other artists doing the same.
Tritt said that other country music musicians are also boycotting Bud Light but they won’t go public because of “fear of being ridiculed or canceled.”
Anheuser-Busch was once a great company under American ownership, but it has become “unrecognizable” after being bought by InBev, a Belgian-Brazilian beer company.
Kid Rock shot Budweiser beer cases with a gun to react to the Mulvaney partnership.
Kid Rock shouted, “F*** Bud Light and f*** Anheuser-Busch.” Have a great day!
Conservative rapper Tom MacDonald mocked Bud Light for putting Mulvaney’s face on a can of beer to celebrate Dylan’s “365 Days of Girlhood.”
“Hey Bud Light, my mom’s been a woman for 23,725 days – you didn’t put her face on a can,” MacDonald said in the video. “Rosa Parks ain’t on a can. Mother Teresa ain’t on a can. Joan of Arc ain’t on a can. Mother Mary ain’t on a can, and she gave birth to Jesus.”
