Megyn Kelly hit back after being labeled “transphobic” over her comments slamming Bud Light’s response to the backlash following its partnership with biological male trans activist Dylan Mulvaney.

The host of the Sirius XM “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast tweeted an article on Tuesday from the news outlet The Wrap headlined, “Megyn Kelly Goes On Transphobic Tirade Over Dylan Mulvaney.”

“Call me whatever names you want,” Kelly wrote. “I am speaking the truth.”

“And neither I nor the millions of other women (and men) who believe in biology/reality/fairness will be dissuaded by your attempts to marginalize us with words like ‘transphobic,'” she added.

The former Fox News host’s tweet has since gone viral, with more than 2.1 million views and counting at the time of this publication.

In the article, the outlet called out the host for telling Anheuser-Busch and CEO Brendan Whitworth it could keep their “pathetic, rambling, empty-air sandwich of — I can’t even call it an apology — an attempt to dissuade people from hating his company and him. It was an utter fail.”

“Screw you and your stupid empty platitudes,” she added. “I read this, I’m like, ‘Oh, your little, market-tested buzzwords on what’s supposed to stir up our patriotism.’ Too late, sir! The buzzwords we were looking for: ‘I’m sorry. We screwed up.'”

Outraged conservatives lashed out at Whitworth for refusing to admit the company made a mistake when it partnered with Mulvaney, resulting in a boycott by customers against the company.


“This person [Mulvaney] who’s on their beer can has made a mockery of womanhood and girlhood for literally the past year and has been celebrated by far-lefties all across the country,” the host said on her show Monday. “But to see what’s supposed to be a mainstream beer company do it was a bridge too far. That’s why they’re having the reaction they are.”

“He [Whitworth] needs to apologize if he wants to save his company,” she added. “And he won’t do it. Instead, we’re getting the horses ad which was, Oh, I’m sure it’s just completely coincidental put out right after his statement…”
