Bud Light and the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce, the “exclusive certifying body for LGBT-owned businesses,” announced they are extending their partnership to support economic opportunities and advancements for LGBTQ+ Americans and business owners across the country.

“Bud Light was brewed to be an ‘Easy to Drink, Easy to Enjoy’ beer for everyone 21+ and that still holds true today,” said Anheuser-Busch in a May 30 press release. “We look forward to extending our work with the NGLCC to continue making a positive impact on the LGBTQ+ businesses that play a critical role in bringing people everywhere, together.”

This year, Bud Light will donate $200,000 to the LGBT Chamber in support of its Communities of Color Initiative, designed to support the growth and success of minority LGBTQ+-owned businesses through certification, scholarships and business development.

Bud Light also donated $200,000 to the LGBT Chamber in 2022.

Bud Light has had stormy weeks since it decided to partner with transgender Dylan Mulvaney, who on TikTok play acts as a teen or pre-teen girl. The partnership ended up costing the company in sales and stock value, as consumers walked away from the brand that had been seen as American as apple pie.

Bud Light maker Anheuser-Busch InBev lost $27 billion in market value after it came out with the Mulvaney partnership. Last week, its stock dropped another 4% and May was the third-worst month for company stock prices, which have suffered a 20% fall since Americans began boycotting the brand.

  1. Haha! Double down, dipsticks!

    What’s another $200k when you’ve already schtupped yourself out of $27b ?

  2. Bud Light was a beer in decline according to its former marketing director. Well, she finished the job!

  3. This clearly demonstrates: Just because you can lead a horse to water, doesn’t mean it’s not dead and capable of being beat…
    What does that mean? Absolutely nothing… and that’s how much A-B has learned from their mistake…

  4. There, now all of you people out there STILL thinking the LGBTQ is ok, THEY ARE NOT. They are who is pushing this gender crap. Until we all start pushing back on EVERYTHING they have their nasty hands in, it will continue. They are who needs to be dealt with. Boycott it all…. Shutem down!

    • Yes,,, that includes all Anheuser Bush products. All of them! Bud, bud light. All Michelob and Michelle ultra and all the other products they produce. Since acceptance and tolerance is not enough let’s all fight back and even if it hurts, Do Not Support these company’s with a single dollar!

  5. Corporatism = Fascism

    Recognize the the flag of death. ‘https://twitter.com/tuitazopanama/status/1665059716119109632

  6. Looks like one Bud Light ‘beer’ mistake deserves another! Or(?), was that the same message from Heineken or Schlitz???
    Either way, the “BUD” stock continues it’s ‘sell’ recommendation, as per the smart analysts on Wall Street.

  7. Budweiser can not make your children trans or gay. It’s just beer. It can’t make you queer. Get a grip. Love your neighbor like you love your beer.

    • And using a man to pose as a teenage girl to promote beer sales is a queer marketing choice.

      • Watching a Clydesdale horse team can’t make someone drink beer or turn them into a cowboy either. Freedom is not a convenience.

    • There will be a contingent that sees Budweiser the same as they ever did and that would be the group that prefers Budweiser when washing the taste of the next meat whistle out of their gullet.

      The plumbers, tradesmen and other blue collar types that might toss a sixxer on the hood and hop up next to it w/ a coworker to polish it off before heading home? Noop.

      That said, this will be much like buying BP stock the week after they polluted the gulf. You know the value’s coming back albeit likely in a different way.

        • While this may be factually correct, I’m pretty sure the ones that are gay A) don’t wish the public to know that detail, and B) are just as happy as the straight plumbers, tradesmen, and blue collar workers to have that cold one at the end of the day, without Dylan Mulvaney being the spokes ‘person’.

    • And, you do not get the real issue here.
      .
      The marketing director/department at Bud Light demonstrated, not only total cluelessness about their market/customers, but also a disdain for the very market that kept the lights on and the business afloat. Putting a man pretending to be a 13 year old girl on as a spokesman was both catering to a minor portion of their users and sticking a finger in the eye of their main market.
      .
      No one thinks Bud will make you gay. That is absolutely ridiculous. What they do think is “why buy a product from a company that knowingly and deliberately chose to snub me?”

  8. They will find out a few at the top of the LBGTQRSTUVWXYZ crowd, (or what ever the hell it is today) have been buying properties and living the high life just like they did with BLM extortion funds, yip a few at the top are spending the money on stuff and the rest will be left out, as for the stupid company’s that give in to what’s basicly extortion can all go broke as far as I’m concerned !

  9. Don’t forget to also include the following brands in your boycott of AB Inbev, the parent of Anheuser Busch. Corona, Stella, Beck’s, Bass, Michelob, Shocktop, Modelo, Natural Lite, and even Heineken shows up on some lists (but not all). Defending our culture means abstaining from all these brands. Hold the line men. Don’t fade.

  10. Bud you support who ever you wish, it’s absolutely your corporate right. Now I as a consumer have to choose where to spend my funds as well. The problem here is that as we all make decisions others can choose how they feel and I feel my funds are better directed to companies that meet my views.

  11. So, AB sent a ransom to the LGBTQWERTYWHATEVER+++ chamber of commerce because… why exactly?
    .
    Seriously, what percentage of the population is LGBTQ+? 10%? Add in the people who are wholly in support of the LGBTQ agenda and you might get to 25% of the population. AB apparently is so terrified of “offending” 1/4th of their potential customers that they will knowingly offend the remaining 3/4.
    .
    That is why these ESG, LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce, and other groups/standards should be ignored. Sell to your largest market, not the fringe, and you will be a successful business. AB did not do that, North Face is not doing that. Target did not do that. instead, they chose to be bullied into compliance, and now they have lost a large number of customers.
