After facing much-deserved backlash for partnering with woman-pretender Dylan Mulvaney, Bud Light and its parent company Anheuser-Busch are doubling down on their endorsement of trans insanity by sponsoring numerous upcoming pride parades across the country.
On Thursday, The Daily Wire’s Spencer Lindquist reported that the beer brand is listed as a sponsor for several upcoming LGBT pride events in cities such as Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio, as well as St. Louis, Missouri. According to Lindquist, Bud Light will be co-sponsoring the 2023 Cincinnati Pride Parade alongside Planned Parenthood and the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. While the former performs horrific abortions on unborn babies, the latter provides harmful puberty blockers and performs trans surgeries on minors.
The Cincinnati Pride Parade did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment on when Bud Light provided its initial sponsorship for the group’s upcoming event.
“Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, where Anheuser-Busch is headquartered, the company is listed as the presenting sponsor of the St. Louis Pride Parade,” the report reads. “A sponsorship packet explains that there are only four ‘presenting sponsor’ slots available. The ‘Rainbow’ sponsorship tier, located below the ‘presenting sponsor’ tier, requires entities to pay $25,000.”
In Columbus, Bud Light is listed as a “Diamond Sponsor” for the city’s upcoming pride parade. According to a document from Stonewall Columbus — which “organizes and hosts” the “annual” event — companies are required to donate $20,000 to the organization in order to become “Diamond” sponsors.
In addition to Bud Light, other Anheuser-Busch brands are listed as sponsors for pride parades in several other cities. While Corona and Corona Hard Seltzer are both listed as sponsors of the upcoming Los Angeles Pride Parade, Cutwater Spirits is listed as a sponsor of the upcoming Chicago Pride Fest. Bud Light was also listed as a sponsor of the (separate) Chicago Pride Parade, but the webpage listing such information has since been scrubbed, according to the report.
These revelations come months after it was revealed that Bud Light made transgender-identifying TikTokker Dylan Mulvaney a brand ambassador. On April 1, Mulvaney revealed on social media that Bud Light had sent him a beer can with his face on it to celebrate his year of “girlhood,” calling it his “most prized possession.”[RELATED: Top Anheuser-Busch Official Previously Bragged About Using Company’s Brands To Push DEI Onto Consumers]
Bud Light sales have since plummeted, leading some retailers to give cases of the beer away for free to avoid spoilage. As The Federalist reported, Twitter user Michael Haz recently “shared pictures of displays from two stores in beer-loving Wisconsin with the infamous brand attempting to offload 20-packs, originally priced at $15, for free after a rebate.”
Anheuser-Busch did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment on why the company decided to sponsor the aforementioned parades and if the company believed sponsoring these events would help bring back customers disaffected by the Mulvaney partnership.
