Watch Fan Tosses Bud Light At Country Music Star On Stage- BIG MISTAKE!
Country music stars Brantley Gilbert and John Rich took a stand against Anheuser-Busch recently when they refused to drink Bud Light in protest of the beer brand's partnership with controversial transgender activist and social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
The country stars were not alone in their boycott of Bud Light. Fellow country singer Travis Tritt joined the protest when he revealed he was removing Anheuser-Busch products from his tour hospitality rider.
The controversy began when Bud Light sent packs of beer featuring Mulvaney’s face to celebrate a full year of “girlhood”. In a post on Instagram, Mulvaney said the cans were her “most prized possession” and included a video of her drinking a Bud Light beer from a bathtub.
In response, Brantley Gilbert was seen smashing a can of Bud Light to the ground during a concert. “Yeah, f*** that,” he said. Gilbert is a well-known supporter of former President Donald Trump and his conservative-leaning politics.
John Rich and Travis Tritt also condemned Bud Light’s partnership with Mulvaney. Rich took to Twitter to ask what beer his bar in Nashville should replace Bud Light with, while Tritt warned fans about purchasing Jack Daniel’s after an ad campaign featuring drag queens resurfaced.
Despite the backlash, Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth refused to apologize for the partnership.
“We never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people,” Whitworth said. “We are in the business of bringing people together over a beer.”
The statement failed to address the issue of Mulvaney or the radical transgender ideology he espouses.
This isn’t the first time Anheuser-Busch has been in hot water for its attempts to “bring people together”. The company has been criticized for its political correctness and woke culture, which often veers into oppressive territory.

Anheuser-Busch’s partnership with Mulvaney is just one more example of the company’s attempts to push its agenda of woke ideology on consumers. Mulvaney identifies as transgender and his “girlhood” celebration is seen by many as an attempt to undermine biological women.
It’s no surprise then that country music stars are standing up for biological women and against the woke agenda of Anheuser-Busch. By boycotting Bud Light, the country stars are sending a powerful message that not only do they stand in solidarity with biological women, but they will not be silenced by woke corporate culture.
