Dylan Mulvaney has made a sly retort to her detractors.
Mulvaney, a transgender influencer, posted a Bud Light commercial on her Instagram earlier this month. In the advertisement at issue, she showed her followers bespoke beer cans the firm had supplied her with her likeness on them in order to promote a sweepstakes contest.
As a result, some celebrities on the right, including Kid Rock, called on his fans to stop supporting him. In fact, he recorded himself opening cases of Bud Light and shared the clip online.
The 26-year-old TikTok star, who has more than 10 million followers, was the target of an onslaught of hateful feedback all at once.
Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Bud Light, issued a statement after receiving criticism, with CEO Brendan Whitworth claiming the business “never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people.”

The next part of the statement said, “I am responsible for ensuring that every consumer feels proud of the beer we brew.” “My service in the military has instilled in me a deep appreciation for duty and the core American principles of individual liberty, honest effort, and mutual regard.
The great history and tradition of Anheuser-Busch is a top priority of mine as CEO.
The welfare of our nation, our business, our products, and our associates are all very important to me. As part of my job, I often travel throughout the United States to meet with distributors, consumers, and other stakeholders.
The LGBTQ+ activist responded to her detractors with grace in an interview with LGBTQ digital magazine Them on Tuesday.
Mulvaney stayed “disciplined” when reporter Wren Sanders pressed her to “roast” the people “who’ve made a living from categorically disrespecting her.”
I don’t want to give them the pleasure of thinking I’m thinking about them if I mention their names,” she said. It demonstrates to my audience that I would fight for what I believe in, while simultaneously emphasising the importance of their own voices.
I actually do enjoy being myself, but you can get to a point where if you read enough stuff about yourself, you might be like, ‘Screw Dylan Mulvaney,'” Mulvaney said elsewhere in the interview. Who is this scumbag?
Now I’m considering how to make my career last as long as possible, which would be another 40 years. What else can I do to get fulfilment in life? Because I’m trying to teach my brain that all the other parts of my life are equally as significant as that one.
