The DRAMATIC Twist in Bud Light Boycott Saga, GUESS Who’s Involved This Time

Bud Light is facing boycotts over its partnership with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney, but Donald Trump Jr. and a powerful GOP committee are being criticized for their attempts to quell the boycotts.

Trump Jr. defended Anheuser-Busch, Bud Light’s parent company, on his podcast last week, calling for an end to the boycott while citing that the company is “iconic” and that it has a history of donations to Republican candidates.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) also deleted a tweet and fundraising page where people could donate money and receive a drink koozie, according to reports. Anheuser-Busch is a sizable donor to the NRCC, giving the group nearly $465,000 in just the 2022 election cycle.

Critics are now lambasting the GOP for removing the fundraising pages, describing the NRCC as being hypocritical and “gutless.”

Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth broke his silence on the controversy over the boycott last week, saying that the company “never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people.”
