Country music star Brantley Gilbert made it known during a recent concert that he’s not down with Anheuser-Busch teaming up with controversial transgender activist and social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney.

Gilbert, an open supporter of former President Donald Trump, smashed a can of Bud Light to the ground when he was tossed the beer at a concert this past weekend, video shows.

“Yeah, f*** that,” the country star said after taking a look at the Bud Light can. After smashing it, Gilbert was tossed a different beer. He looked at it approvingly and tossed it to one of his bandmates to “shotgun,” or consume very quickly by punching a hole in the side of the can.

Unlike other stars who are too afraid to be open about their conservative-leaning politics, Gilbert has rocked pro-Trump gear and has even enjoyed his fans’ “F*** Joe Biden” chants at a concert in 2021.

And he’s not the only country star to weigh into the Bud Light-Mulvaney controversy. As The Daily Wire reported, John Rich and Travis Tritt joined a Bud Light boycott last week.

“What beer should my bar [Redneck Riviera] in Nashville replace #BudLight with?” Rich tweeted Wednesday, which led fans to flood the comments with suggestions.

“I will be deleting all Anheuser-Busch products from my tour hospitality rider. I know many other artists who are doing the same,” Tritt shared on Twitter Wednesday evening. A few hours later, the singer also warned fans about purchasing Jack Daniel’s after an ad campaign featuring drag queens resurfaced online.

“In full disclosure, I was on a tour sponsored by Budweiser in the 90s. That was when Anheuser-Busch was American owned. A great American company that later sold out to the Europeans and became unrecognizable to the American consumer. Such a shame,” Tritt wrote in a follow-up.


Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth addressed the controversy with Mulvaney on Friday but fell short of appeasing folks on either side of the issue.

“We never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people,” Whitworth said. “We are in the business of bringing people together over a beer.”

The statement notably contained no mea culpa and no mention of Mulvaney — a biological male who claims to be a “girl” — or the radical transgender ideology he espouses.
