Bud Light Announces Plan to Feature Blaire White On Beer Cans to Stop Conservative Boycotts
Transgenders are just fine as long as they are not leftists.
St. Louis, Missouri — Bud Light, has announced its intention to partner with transgender influencer Blaire White in an effort to fend off the threat of conservative boycotts. The move comes after the company dealt with months of vitriol coming from conservative influencers over its decision to collaborate with transgender social media personality Dylan Mulvaney.
“We see where we went wrong,” Bud Light said in a written statement. “It wasn't that we put a transgender woman on our beer cans. It was that we didn't put the right transgender woman on our beer cans. We intend to rectify that immediately.”
When Mulvaney appeared in a photo showing his face on a can of Bud Light, there was a significant backlash coming from the right who accused the company of promoting a “woke” agenda. Calls for boycotts followed soon after.
“Conservatives despise Dylan Mulvaney. We get it. But they LOVE Blaire White even though she is also transgender. We think this is a way to show conservatives that we care about their concerns too. Hopefully, they can accept this olive branch,” Bud Light’s statement read.
Some conservatives seem open to the idea. Hannah Kemp, a right-leaning activist in Sarasota, Florida, told The Smattering that “Dylan Mulvaney is everything that is wrong with this country.”
“Mulvaney is the face of the woke trans agenda right now, and we have to expose what he is doing,” she continued, noting that over the past month, she has spent at least three hours per day posting about Mulvaney on her social media channels.
“This is how we stop this agenda — by tweeting, posting, and vlogging about it all day every day,” she added.
Kemp did seem open to the idea of having Blaire White on a Bud Light can as a way for the company to make amends. “Sure, Blaire White is trans, but she criticizes the left a lot, so I think she’s the right person to have on a beer can.”
Matthias Shaw, an up-and-coming conservative influencer echoed Kemp’s sentiments and seemed enthused about the prospect of a partnership between Bud Light and Blaire White. “I mean, I think it's clear that our transgenders are better than theirs,” he said. “This is certainly a step in the right direction.”
He added: “If we're gonna do this trans thing, we might as well do it the right way. Putting Blaire White on a beer can is a surefire way to push back against the Democrats’ woke agenda.”
Others on the right also see this as a way for Bud Light to re-establish trust with right-leaning Americans even if it still wishes to work with Mulvaney. “If they are going to work with a left-wing transgender person, then they should also give a right-wing transgender person a chance too,” said Kemp. “We shouldn’t tolerate this type of political bias on our beer cans.”
A spokesperson with Bud Light was optimistic about the idea. “What better way to shut these people up than to throw a transgender in the mix who agrees with their politics?” she said. “When they see an image of Blaire White holding an assault rifle on our cans, they’ll be back with us in no time!”
Donald Trump Jr., who recently urged conservatives not to boycott the company, indicated he might be willing to wear a dress while holding a can of Bud Light to help mend the rift between the company and conservatives. “Why the hell not?” he said during a recent podcast episode. “They donate oodles of cash to Republicans, so I wouldn’t mind taking one for the team.”
