Senior executives at Bud Light parent company Anheuser-Busch were reportedly not informed about the company’s partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, with one source claiming the move “was a mistake.”
Earlier this month, Mulvaney revealed a partnership with Bud Light, sharing an image of a personalized beer can depicting Mulvaney’s face. In the days that followed, a spokesperson for the company confirmed the partnership stating Mulvaney was just one of “hundreds of influencers” the company worked with in order to “authentically connect” with consumers.
“From time to time, we produce unique commemorative cans for fans and for brand influencers, like Dylan Mulvaney. This commemorative can was a gift to celebrate a personal milestone and is not for sale to the general public,” the spokesperson continued.
As I’ve been digging into this, I’m finding this to be 100% true@AnheuserBusch has donated far more to GOP candidates than Dems, and FAR more than woke @MolsonCoors.— John Cardillo (@johncardillo) April 6, 2023
Looks like the Dylan Mulvaney campaign was not approved by senior execs.
Heads should roll. https://t.co/e301ZF2vDU
