(USNewsMag.com) – During a recent podcast, Joe Rogan, a well-known comedian and podcaster, didn’t hold back in his criticism of Dylan Mulvaney, a transgender social media influencer who recently made headlines because of his involvement with Bud Light promotions.
According to Rogan, Mulvaney is “mentally ill” and seeking attention.
In April, Mulvaney teamed up with BudLight for a collaboration. It did not go over well with the American public, with people calling for a boycott of the brand.
Addressing his fans in a social media post, Dylan Mulvaney explained why he worked with Bud Light and talked about the backlash he received.
Rapper Ice Cube was a guest on Joe Rogan’s podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, and during their two-and-a-half-hour conversation, they talked about the Bud Light/Dylan catastrophe.
In the episode, which aired on June 29, Ice Cube asked about the ownership of Bud Light and questioned why they would pair with someone like Mulvaney.
Joe answered that it all comes down to the ESG standard, which stands for environmental (for example, climate change), Social (such as gender inclusivity), and Governance (how a company is run), which rates the performances of companies based on certain principles. Rogan felt that Bud Light didn’t know anything about the people who typically drink that beer.
Following the Mulvaney-Bud Light partnership, Kid Rock posted a video on social media shooting a bunch of Bud Light cans, which was highlighted by Rogan.
Further angering people who were already questioning the Mulvaney partnership, Bud Light sponsored Toronto Pride. 2023 is the 10th year that Bud Light has sponsored the LGBTQIA+ event.
Rogan and Ice discussed the Pride clothing sold at Target. Again, consumers were not happy and reacted by boycotting Target.
Rogan noted Target lost billions due to people objecting to controversial topics being imposed.
