Sean Hannity: Woke ‘Idiot’ in Bud Light Management Cost Workers Their Jobs

July 31st, 2023 11:53 AM

Fox News host Sean Hannity took a blowtorch to the management at Bud Light’s embattled parent company for letting their obsession with woke politics cost workers their jobs.

Hannity slammed Anheuser-Busch, which owns the ailing brand Bud Light during the July 27 edition of his show, after its financial downturn for genuflecting to the rainbow mafia led to the company laying off around 360 employees. These layoffs follow the national backlash to Bud Light’s disastrous decision to partner with “transgender” actor Dylan Mulvaney earlier this year. Hannity didn’t mince words: “This is the very thing that I feared and the reason I said ‘I hope it doesn’t go on long because some idiot in management made a dumb decision.’ We now have innocent hard-working people getting hurt because of incompetent dumb management.’” 

After the backlash for using wokeness as a marketing strategy, Anheuser-Busch began running Pro-America ads featuring its iconic Clydesdale horses in order to pacify outraged Americans. MRC Free Speech America Vice President Dan Schneider rebuked the woke beer company in a statement: “It's insulting that Anheuser-Busch thinks that conservatives will be pacified by seeing more Clydesdales in commercials again. Conservatives would rather send those horses to the glue factory than drink their beer.”

Hannity went on to mention that sales have fallen “nearly thirty percent compared to 2022.” Fox Business Host Neil Cavuto also covered the layoffs on the July 27th edition of his show Cavuto Coast-to-Coast. One of Cavuto’s guests, Public Ventures President Lou Basenese, said that Anheuser-Busch’s misstep is a “lesson to public company CEO: Do not mix politics with products and services.”
