    Former President Trump urged his followers to give Anheuser-Busch a “second chance” after months of criticism the company has faced from conservatives. “The Bud Light ad was a mistake of epic proportions,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social website Tuesday, referencing a brief partnership the company had with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney that has cost it billions in market value. “Anheuser-Busch is not a Woke company,” the former president said, adding “I can give you plenty that are, am building a list, and might just release it for the World to see.” “Anheuser-Busch is a Great American Brand that perhaps...

    Skittles candy, which has the slogan, "Taste the rainbow," is the latest company to take heat from consumers because of new packaging that has the phrase, "Black Trans Lives Matter." Some consumers are now calling to boycott the candy company for its "woke" approach to support the LGBTQ community. Skittles is a product from the Wrigley Company, which is a division of Mars, Inc. When visiting, the top of the page has a clickable option titled, "SKITTLES Pride," and when clicked, the animation says, "There’s a story in every rainbow." "We’ve given up our rainbow so that the LGBTQ+...

    People who attended the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, SD, steered clear of the Budweiser tent because of Bud Light’s partnership with American transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney. “I got to tell you right now though, not looking good,” said TikTok user Cycledrag in a video. “As you can tell, Budweiser’s spent an awful lot of money.” A few staff members were spotted hanging behind a Budweiser booth, with one of them flashing the peace sign. These staff members said people can get a Sturgis glass at the tent. Cycledrag moved over and shows a few people standing under the umbrella...

    Budweiser showed up with a tent at a major motorcycle event that the company sponsored in the city of Sturgis in South Dakota. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is the world’s largest motorcycle rally that began in 1938 by a group of Indian Motorcycle riders. It was originally held for stunts and races. Social media erupted as people saw no one visiting the Budweiser tent or drinking its beer. “ZERO attendees at the Budweiser tent in Sturgis,” one person commented. “This may be the BIGGEST marketing blunder of all time!”

    Joe Rogan cracked open a can of Bud Light and took a sip — defying calls to boycott the beer over its tie-up with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney. Rogan began his wildly popular Spotify podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience” on Tuesday by welcoming his guest, country music star Zach Bryan, with a toast in which they both raised cans of Bud Light. “We’re drinking Bud Light, ladies and gentlemen,” Rogan declared at the start of the three-hour broadcast. Rogan, anticipating fury from his many conservative-leaning listeners, offered a sarcastic apology. “Sooooorry,” he exhaled. “People are silly,” Rogan added. Bryan, who...

    The embarrassment is real for Bud Light. Several distributors of Anheuser-Busch beer say they have accepted the fact they’ve lost money — and a lot of it — due to consumers boycotting Bud Light. And not just that, but they’ve also given up completely on trying to win back customers who have been negatively affected by the anti-American beer’s Dylan Mulvaney campaign, according to the New York Post. Hiring freezes and layoffs have been going on for four months, while some beer truck drivers have been slammed with hecklers and other harassment while Bud Light’s sales have tanked over 25%....

    Seriously, man … how embarrassing can one company get? For over three months since its partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, beer giant Bud Light has been getting rocked with embarrassment on a daily basis. For both Bud Light and its umbrella brand Anheuser-Busch, sales have completely tanked. And speaking of that umbrella, it’s been getting slammed with heavy rain as Anheuser-Busch’s stocks have come down as well. And what’s been A-B’s plan in an attempt to get out of their Mulvaney disaster? To just simply act like nothing ever happened. Instead of just owning up to their stupidity and...

    Budweiser was criticized by social media users over a Fourth of July message the company posted Tuesday. In the 30-second ad, F-16 pilot Lt. Col. Dan Rooney provides a voiceover promoting the partnership between the beer brand and Rooney’s educational scholarship program, Folds of Honor. It comes amid a massive backlash against Bud Light, which is owned by the same parent company as Budweiser, over its partnership with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney. “Budweiser has believed in Folds of Honor for 13 years,” Rooney said in the voice over. “Today, we honor our veterans and the 44,000 scholarships awarded to their...

    Bud Light's sales have plummeted so much that a glass bottling company was forced to shut down two of its plants and lay off nearly 650 employees. The Ardagh Group, one of the largest glass producers in the world, announced last week it was shuttering its Wilson, North Carolina, and Simsboro, Louisiana, plants on July 17. The Wilson plant employed nearly 400 people, and the Simsboro plant had 245 - all of whom now find themselves without jobs. The company did not cite a reason for the closures in its statement, just saying it was part of a 'multi-year performance...

    Transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney was seen out-and-about in Los Angeles in a rare public appearance as she has kept a low profile since her disastrous advertising campaign with Bud Light. The 26-year-old was seen in photographs obtained exclusively by leaving her apartment in a white crop top with white jeans, sunglasses and a face mask on Saturday, as she picked up her $800 Prada bikini top and a pink dress from a local dry cleaners. She later headed to a Beverly Hills salon where she underwent laser hair removal before admittedly speeding away. Mulvaney's public outing comes after...

Last month, Bud Light's sponsorship of transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney sparked massive customer backlash. Now, Target is the subject of boycotts after releasing a line of women's clothing intended to be worn by biological men with 'tuck-friendly construction' and 'extra crotch' room.

  • This Bud's for Belgium (Corporate Tax Rate Uncompetitive)

    Wall Street Journal ^ | August 3, 2008
    Politicians and Wall Streeters are starting to ask why the Belgian beer company InBev purchased Anheuser-Busch and not the other way around. Anheuser-Busch is an iconic American firm and some find it almost unpatriotic that Anheuser CEO August Busch IV allowed the "King of Beers" to relocate across the Atlantic -- though shareholders were the big winners here with a $50 billion-plus takeaway. But here's the real question: Was the takeover basically financed by the savings Anheuser expected from escaping America's increasingly uncompetitive corporate tax system? According to the Tax Foundation, Belgium's corporate tax rate is 33%, but the effective...

    Bud Light's parent company Anheuser-Busch has seen its market value plunge $15.7billion since the disastrous campaign with transgender-influencer Dylan Mulvaney. Since April 1, the company has consistently been dropping down the rankings, with experts saying it 'just keeps getting a little worse each week'. But their competitors have added $3.2billion in market value to their brands in the same time. Molson Coors, which owns Coors Lite, has seen an increase of $2.2billion market value, around 20 percent, while Heineken has a spike of $1billion – an increase of 1.7 percent. Sales of Bud Light are down more than 23 percent...
