Country music star Brantley Gilbert made his stance clear on the Bud Light controversy following the company’s decision to partner with controversial far-left trans activist Dylan Mulvaney.
Bud Light’s parent company Anheuser-Busch paid to produce cans featuring Mulvaney’s face to celebrate “365 days of girlhood,” which marks Mulvaney’s decision to transition from male to female.
While on stage during a concert in Alabama, Gilbert was tossed a Bud Light by a fan. Holding up the can for everyone to see, the singer shouted, “F*** that!”
Gilbert smashed the can into the ground. A second beer was thrown to Gilbert and he forwarded it to his drummer.

Despite Anheuser-Busch’s best efforts to put this issue behind the company, many people don’t seem interested in moving on.
Ever since Kid Rock ripped some cases apart with a firearm, the outrage has been spun up and seemingly isn’t slowing down.
The company has lost billions in market cap, the stock price has dipped, sales are reportedly down and people are still fed up with the woke nonsense.
Now, one of the biggest faces in all of country music is on video crushing a Bud Light. It’s pretty obvious this issue isn’t going away.
Anheuser-Busch can run all the pro-America ads it wants, but it doesn’t seem to be moving the needle in the direction the company would like.
It should be interesting to see who comes out next against Bud Light. I’m confident we’re not done just yet.
