If you thought the transgender Bud Light drama was over, think again. Millions of Americans are outraged that a formerly all-American product has become the poster child for the radical left. Bud Light embraced the transgender movement by plastering Dylan Mulvaney’s face on their cans.
Numerous celebrities blasted the company, including Kid Rock and Travis Tritt. Bars even pulled the product from their shelves, after customers just stopped ordering it. Its parent company has already lost around $4 billion over the entire thing. But the boycott is just getting started.
Now, we know that even Democrats are on board with this one!
Transgenderism is so toxic to many Americans that 50 percent of middle-income earners are less likely to buy Bud Light beer because the brewer hired a pro-transgender man to change the beer’s public image…
Fifty-four percent of Americans support a Bud Light boycott, including 53 percent of men, 57 percent of white respondents and 66 percent of Republicans, and 57 percent of people under age 40. Roughly one-third of people in each income group say they “strongly support” the boycott.
Just 18 percent “strongly oppose” a boycott, including 30 percent of Democrats and 11 percent of Republicans. Overall, a plurality of Democrats say they support the movement, 44-43. [Source: Breitbart]
As usual, the woke left is out of step with most of America. A large portion of the country supports a boycott of Bud Light in the wake of its transgender campaign. In fact, 44% of Democrats support boycotting the beer. That’s not something the “woke” executives at Bud Light were expecting.
The reason the company committed this form of financial suicide is that they expected, at least, liberals to back this campaign. Bud Light partnered with the obnoxious transgender personality Dylan Mulvaney, thinking that would get younger and more left-leaning Americans to buy their crappy beer.
Instead, a plurality of Democrats supports the boycott. This means, that most voting Democrats are not on board with large companies forcing woke politics onto the American public. That spells trouble for every company that is trying to score points with the left by becoming “woke.”
Major corporations have recently pushed woke politics in their ad campaigns, as a way of staying “relevant” with the times. They seem to think that embracing social justice, CRT, or transgenderism is going to keep them alive, in the coming years.
But the exact opposite is happening. From Disney to Gillette, companies are losing big time because they took sides. Instead of providing relief from the endless political battle, they are pushing leftist politics onto Americans.
And that is not working, clearly.
Americans have ample alternatives to cheap beer like Bud Light. This boycott is not going to end any time soon.
