The market value of Anheuser-Busch has plummeted more than $5 billion as a result of boycotts following the company’s decision to partner with controversial transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney.
Mulvaney’s face was added to cans in order to celebrate one year of “girlhood,” marking Mulvaney’s decision to change genders from male to female.
Despite the backlash, at least 13 major brands are working with Mulvaney.
This includes a number of very popular companies and brands, such as Crest toothpaste, Instacart, Nike, Ulta Beauty, KitchenAid, Kate Spade, and Anheuser-Busch.
Other companies include Aritzia, CeraVe, Haus Labs, K18 Hair, KIND Snacks, Ole Henriksen, and Rent the Runway.
