Dee Snider Picks A Side In The Bud Light Controversy

In a recent tweet, rock legend Dee Snider chimed in on the Bud Light controversy that has been making headlines. While Snider admitted that he’s not a beer drinker, he humorously expressed his newfound desire for a Bud Light. This tweet was a response to the news of anti-LGBTQ+ politician Ron DeSantis joining the ongoing Bud Light backlash.

The Bud Light boycott started when the company sent influencer Dylan Mulvaney a few beers earlier this month. Mulvaney, a transgender woman, posted a video of herself dressed as Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, celebrating March Madness and her first year of womanhood. The video also featured a can with her image on it as part of a paid sponsorship and promotion for a sweepstakes challenge where participants can win $15,000 from Bud Light.

Unfortunately, the partnership between Bud Light and Mulvaney led to an outpouring of criticism from those who believe the world is becoming too woke.’ Prominent figures like Kid Rock and Travis Tritt have joined the fray, with the former shooting cans of the beer and the latter banning the brand from his tour. This has resulted in many on the right calling for a boycott of the best-selling beer in the country.

Snider’s response came after another tweet, taking a jab at DeSantis by pointing out the politician’s hypocritical stance on the matter. DeSantis claimed that Bud Light lost a customer before admitting that he doesn’t even drink the beer. He then stated his preference for Guinness, even though that company has been advertising to the LGBTQ+ community for years.

The Twister Sister frontman used humor and irony to take a stand in the Bud Light controversy. Snider cleverly communicated his support for the brand and the LGBTQ+ community, despite not being a beer drinker himself. His remark can be seen as a tongue-in-cheek way of dismissing the critics and showing that he is not swayed by their calls for a boycott. It demonstrates that he values inclusivity and appreciates Bud Light’s willingness to support a transgender influencer.

An initial tweet said:

“Staunchly anti-LGBTQ Ron DeSantis is the latest politician to join the Dylan Mulvaney brew haha, advocating a conservative boycott of Bud Light. He said Bud Light ‘lost a customer,’ before admitting that he doesn’t even drink it. Then DeSantis said he prefers Guinness — although that beer company has also been advertising to the LGBTQ community for years. Who else thinks DeSantis should worry less about gay-friendly beers and more about the massive flooding in Fort Lauderdale?”

Snider commented on that by writing the following:

“Oddly, I have never drank beer, but lately, I’ve been hankering’ for a Bud Light!

Thus, Dee Snider showed his support for Bud Light amidst the ongoing controversy. As the debate goes on, Snider’s tweet adds a light-hearted and positive spin to the ongoing debate, illustrating the power of humor in challenging the absurdity of the situation.
