We Finally Know How Much Damage Bud Light Boycott Did to Anheuser-Busch

In a culture wherein the most effective means most people have of making their voices heard is their wallets, many people, left and right, often proclaim they will boycott a company they don’t agree with.

However, boycotts often either fail to garner much support, or consumers eventually forget about their resolution when it gets too hard.

With Bud Light, however, conservatives have done massive damage to the company in the wake of its brief, ill-conceived partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, from which its parent company, Anheuser-Busch, may never recover.

And now that damage comes with a price tag.

According to a report in CNN, Bud Light has lost what may be a staggering $1.4 billion in the wake of the American boycott.

Anheuser-Busch executives tried to put a brave face on the loss, with CEO Michel Doukeris saying that their slow recovery is “not at the fast pace that we were expecting or that we’ve been working for.”

“But nevertheless, progress is in place,” he added.

Other analysts were not reassured by his positive spin.

One equity analyst, Aarin Chiekrie, told CNN that, “in the U.S., performance remains very underwhelming with revenue down at double-digit rates as the group lost market share.”

Fortune didn’t have much positive insight either, reporting that the problems plaguing the company in 2023 are only following it into 2024.

U.S. sales dropped by 9.5 percent in the past year, and the resolution of a potential Teamster’s strike was some of the only good news the company has received in almost a year.

Are there any other brands in American history that have fallen so precipitously and so catastrophically at the height of their power?

For two decades, Bud Light was the number one beer in America, the self-proclaimed “king of beers.” After sponsoring Mulvaney, it took only a matter of months to lose that spot to Modelo Especial.

Clearly, the company’s brief flirtation with a wildly progressive agenda has proved catastrophic, damaging Bud Light significantly, if not permanently, in the U.S.

Thanks to publicly endorsing a disordered ideology that most Americans find repugnant, Bud Light is becoming a cautionary tale, as well as a mediocre beer most Americans now avoid like the plague.

Tragic as the outcome may be for Anheuser-Busch, they can at least provide a great lesson for other companies and businesses tempted to sell out to progressive ideology.

    Kind of goes to the heart of the problem with a lot of companies today who hire people based on whether or not they have a college degree or based their DEI qualifications rather than their ability to do the job. Heinerscheid is just another product of this foolish and contemptible attitude, and when you hear about colleges teaching things like “happiness classes” it’s no wonder.

    Watch any interview with Anheuser-Busch’s U.S. CEO, Brendan Whitworth, and you’ll get a good idea why Heinerscheid was thought to be such a valuable hire because he’s just as shallow & arrogant as she is, but he’s also just as inept because he couldn’t even bring himself to apologize to their customers – you know, those schlubs who pay their salaries – for their mistake.

    Who thought putting a sports bra on a tranny, who looks like a 12yo boy taking a bubble bath, would sell beer? Somebody at Budweiser had to watch this video, and sign off on it. The United States has become the laughing stock of the whole world, because of sick twisted deranged perverted shit like this.

    What I want to know is if Dylan Mulvaney still has a penis or did he cut it off?? I don’t know whether to see it as a girl or a boy. This is sooo confusing. Why can’t people just be normal? LOL It doesn’t matter how advanced technology gets there will still be knuckleheads to fill in the gaps.
