Transgender activist and social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney, the individual at the core of the recent Bud Light boycott, put the beer brand on blast Thursday afternoon in a video for not coming to his defense after the company’s partnership with him — which included putting his face on their can — backfired in the worst way, causing the parent company, Anheuser-Busch to lose billions of dollars in market value.
According to the Daily Wire, Mulvaney, who is a biological male identifying as a female, stated in the video that he was addressing the whole situation because he had, and this is the word he actually used, an “uncomfy” feeling and wanted to clear the air.
“I took a brand deal with a company that I loved. And I posted a sponsored video to my page,” Mulvaney remarked in the video. “And it must have been a slow news week, because the way that this ad got blown up, you would have thought I was like, on a billboard, or on a TV commercial or something major, but no, it was just an Instagram video.”
The report explained that the advertisement featured Mulvaney promoting the can featuring his face. The transgender activist stated that the backlash that resulted led to “more bullying and transphobia than I could have ever imagined.”
Listen, the reason for the hate, Mulvaney, is because people are sick and tired of having the farce of a person pretending to be the gender or even species that they aren’t shoved in their face. Science has proven for centuries that there is only men and women. One cannot be the other. Thinking you are the opposite gender is a mental disorder that needs legitimate treatment aimed at helping a person truly accept how they were born. We should never feed the delusions of someone with a mental illness. Come on now, this is common sense.
“And I should have made this video months ago, but I didn’t. And I was scared,” he claimed during the video. “And I was scared of more backlash. And I felt personally guilty for what transpired. So I patiently waited for things to get better. But surprise, they haven’t really. And I was waiting for the brand to reach out to me, but they never did. And for months now, I’ve been scared to leave my house, I have been ridiculed in public, I’ve been followed.”
“For a company to hire a trans person and then not publicly stand by them is worse in my opinion than not hiring a trans person at all,” he later said. “Because it gives customers permission to be as transphobic and hateful as they want. And the hate doesn’t end with me, it has serious and grave consequences for the rest of our community. And, you know, we’re customers, too. I know a lot of trans and queer people who love beer, and I have some lesbian friends who could drink some of those haters under the table. But to turn a blind eye and pretend everything is okay. It just isn’t an option right now.”
Mulvaney went on to add that the whole idea that the transgender debate is political is not exactly accurate, saying, “There should be nothing controversial or divisive about working with us.”

Again, no one cares what a person chooses to do in their own time and in their private lives. However, it’s wrong to want to force someone to indulge in the fantasies and delusions of another person. It’s as simple as that. People are tired of being forced to acknowledge and participate in the normalization of behaviors that are anything but normal.
