You know things are really messed up when a singer changing the kind of beer served backstage looks like a brave act of civil disobedience. But here we are.
Country star Travis Tritt is nixing anything related to Budweiser or Bud Light from his concert green rooms. The move is a reaction to a newly-announced Bud Light partnership with transgender “influencer” (God help us) and activist Dylan Mulvaney, who recently had surgery to help him pretend he’s a woman.
"I will be deleting all Anheuser-Busch products from my tour hospitality rider. I know many other artists who are doing the same," Tritt tweeted on Wednesday.
Sure, it’s not "Letter from Birmingham Jail," nor is it nearly as dramatic as Kid Rock’s protest, but it’s something, and it’s well-deserved.
It was only last week that a transgender lunatic murdered six people in a Christian school in Nashville. The media and the LGBT mob has spent the days since arguing that the real victims were transgender people, not the three nine year-olds and three adults she purposely targeted. Against that background, Bud Light’s announcement is a middle finger to grieving families, Christians, and anybody else unwilling to genuflect to the fashionably mentally ill.
In another tweet, Tritt noted that he was part of “a tour sponsored by Budweiser back in the 90’s. That was when Anheuser-Busch was American owned.” Back then, Tritt said, the brewer was a great American company that later sold out to the Europeans and became unrecognizable to the American consumer.”
But, hey Bud. Don't worry about it. Country fans don't drink much beer.
Not long afterward he tweeted about Jack Daniels partnering with “Ru Paul’s Drag Race,” and said, "All the Jack Daniels drinkers should take note."
I wonder how he feels about Nike ...
