Many Americans have been frustrated with Bud Light after the company started featuring controversial far-left transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney in its online ads.
This decision comes shortly after 28-year-old trans mass shooter Audrey Hale killed six people at a school in Nashville, TN, including three 9-year-olds.
Kid Rock, whose lives in Tennessee, expressed his outrage by posting a video to social media and firing his gun into cases of Bud Light beer. The brand has often included LGBTQ representation in its marketing.
“Grandpa’s feeling a little frisky today,” Kid Rock said. “Let me say something to all of you and be as clear and concise as possible.”
“Have a terrific day,” he concluding, making his stance clear that he’ll be boycotting the beer company.

Bud Light says the transgender social media influencer is helping the company “authentically connect with audiences.” Despite the calls from American parents to cut ties, Anheuser-Busch has double-down on its position by defending Mulvaney.

The beer company sent packs of its product to the transgender activist in order to celebrate what Mulvaney calls “365 Days of Girlhood.” Mulvaney reportedly receives over $10,000 to market numerous brands, in addition to Bud Light.

“Happy March Madness!!” Mulvaney said. “Just found out this had to do with sports and not just saying it’s a crazy month!”
“In celebration of this sports thing Bud Light is giving you the chance to win $15,000!” Mulvaney continued. “Share a video with #EasyCarryContest for a chance to win!! Good luck!”
Mulvaney, who is a “Bud Light partner,” is biological male who identifies as a female.
Mulvaney posted a video drinking Bud Light in the bathtub.

Dylan Mulvaney is the new (botched) face of Bud Light 🤡 @budlight either doesn’t know their customers or they do and just don’t give a shit. I’m guessing the latter. What a disgrace.

Hey @budlight, how about you send a beer to the woman who birthed 5 kids, homeschools, runs a business, doesn’t sleep much or have time to put on makeup & heels as often as she’d like?
That’s a REAL woman. Not the man with eyeshadow & plastic surgery who pretends he’s a woman.

Message to conservative families from @budlight seems to be: We will encourage and even celebrate the erasure of men and women along with all the values you care about. They’ve gone totally woke. Will you ever spend your money with them now? pic.twitter.com/ebtfHUoji3

The good news is that Bud Light tastes like rain water that someone siphoned out of a tin bucket so it should be very easy to boycott
