‘Stupid’: Conservatives Rip Anheuser-Busch’s Apology Amid $5B Loss, Trans Ad Backlash

'I am responsible for ensuring every consumer feels proud of the beer we brew... '

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) The head of Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Bud Light, appeared to apologize for its embattled collaboration with transgender TikTok influencer Dylan Mulvaney amid backlash and a whopping $5 billion loss in value.

Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth said it was never the company’s intent to be a part of the transgender revolt.

“I am responsible for ensuring every consumer feels proud of the beer we brew. We never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people. My time serving this country taught me the importance of accountability and the values upon which America was founded: freedom, hard work and respect for one another,” he said. “As CEO of Anheuser-Busch, I am focused on building and protecting our remarkable history and heritage.

Whitworth’s statement, however, did little to appease conservatives who accuse Anheuser-Busch of failing to properly apologize for the company’s endorsement of transgender ideology and woke propaganda.

“[Anheuser Busch’s response] is just as clumsy and stupid as the marketing stunt that got them into this mess in the first place,” said What is a woman? director and Daily Wire podcast’s Matt Walsh said.

“I have a hard time believing this,” Trending Politics co-owner Collin Rugg said via Twitter.

“He obviously knows marketing since he responded on a Friday afternoon knowing the story is dead by Monday,” author and podcaster Patrick Bet-David responded.

Conservative attorney and influencer Rogan O’Handley slammed Anheuser’s delayed response. “No apology for supporting the Trans movement days after a Trans Terrorist killed Christian kids in school,” he said. “No plan to work w/MAGA influencers.”

“Way too late […] #BoycottBudLight,” MIGS director Greg J. Marchand MD said, calling on consumers to stop buying the pro-transgender beer.

Whitworth’s statement comes days after Anheuser-Busch lost more than $5 billion in value, the New York Post reported on April 12.

Bud Light attempted to downplay the partnership with Mulvaney, claiming the trans-inspired beers were never intended for public sale.

“From time to time we produce unique commemorative cans for fans and for brand influencers, like Dylan Mulvaney. This commemorative can was a gift to celebrate a personal milestone and is not for sale to the general public,” Bud Light told the Associated Press.

Bud Light’s response appeared to contradict the 2022 public sale of “limited-edition pronoun-inspired” cans during the celebration of LGBT pride.
