Bud Light To Sponsor Pride Parades Despite Ongoing Boycott

Bud Light and its parent company Anheuser-Busch are sponsoring at least three different upcoming Pride events despite backlash over the partnership with Dylan Mulvaney, a social media influencer who identifies as transgender.

Bud Light sales have declined since its partnership with Mulvaney was revealed, and the company is even offering to buy back expiring cases of Bud Light from retailers. The controversy began when the company gave Mulvaney Bud Light cans with his face on them.

Anson Frericks, the former president of sales and distribution of Anheuser-Busch, offered his prediction for the company’s future in an interview with The Daily Wire, saying that he expects a “long, hot, dry summer for Anheuser-Busch.”
