Country music star Brantley Gilbert is the latest to publicly take Bud Light to task for their recent partnership with trans community activist and social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
During his performance at Indian Mountain ATV Park, a fan gently tossed a can of Bud Light to Gilbert. The music artist smashed the can and uttered an expletive.
Gilbert has struggled with drinking and reportedly has been sober since 2011.
When another fan tossed a second can of beer to Gilbert, he passed it on to his drummer.
Bud Light’s parent company, Anheuser-Busch, has faced backlash and a reported $6 billion loss in company value since partnering with Mulvaney less than two weeks ago.
CEO Brendan Whitworth said in a statement last Friday: “We never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people.”
Gilbert joins music artists Travis Tritt, John Rich and Kid Rock in denouncing Bud Light beer. Sales of Anheuser-Busch products plummeted 70% in 10 days after partnering with Mulvaney.
One Twitter user noted that the controversy will continue and escalate until Bud Light makes a public apology.
Daily Wire contributor Matt Walsh responded to DC Draino’s tweet by writing: “The win with this Bud Light situation is when they publicly apologize for promoting transgenderism.”
