The Bud Light boycott saga continues.
Country music artists Travis Tritt and John Rich took to Twitter to announce that following Bud Light’s partnership with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney, they would no longer be supporting the brewing company.
Tritt, a Grammy-winning ’90s country icon, said this on his social media account without specifically addressing the Mulvaney partnership:
“I will be deleting all Anheuser-Busch products from my tour hospitality rider. I know many other artists who are doing the same.”
He added that other artists might not publicly announce it, but were doing the same.
“Other artists who are deleting Anheuser-Busch products from their hospitality rider might not say so in public for fear of being ridiculed and canceled.
I have no such fear.”
One of “many other artists” that Tritt alluded to, who definitely has no fear, would be the always interesting Kid Rock.
You would have to be living under a rock (Kid Rock joke) to have missed the viral video that came from Kid Rock’s views on the entire Budweiser partnership situation. He starts the video by saying:
“Grandpa’s feeling a little frisky today.”
Very “on brand” for Kid Rock to do this.
Not to sound like a JFK conspiracy theorist, but it appears that there is a second shooter in Kid Rock’s “F*** Bud Light” video. Looked to me like a shotgun with some tracer rounds. I know that isn’t a necessarily important observation, but it’s an observation nonetheless.
And finally, John Rich announced that he would be removing Bud Light from his Nashville bar, Redneck Riviera.
Bud Light and the Anheuser-Busch company have been met with significant backlash following the decision to partner with the transgender influencer.
