As a result, Bud Light Brewer puts two executives (Alissa Heinerscheid, VP of marketing who oversaw Bud Light marketing, and her boss Daniel Blake) on Leave after they hired Transgender Influencer, and their parent company stock loses 5 Billion dollars in valuation.
Bud Light suffers bloodbath as longtime and loyal consumers revolt against the transgender campaign.
‘In Bud Light’s effort to be inclusive, they excluded almost everybody else,’ says a St. Louis bar owner.
Billion-dollar mistake: It seems the marketing team of Bud Light forget the basic fundamental, which is “Know your Customer”.

American consumers nationwide revolted against the country’s top-selling beer brand after it started a new ad campaign with total disregard for the consumer culture with its new spokesperson, transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney.
Bud Light suffers ‘staggering’ 17% sales plunge amid Dylan Mulvaney controversy. The sales data in the week ended April 15 from NielsenIQ and Bump Williams Consulting suggest that Bud Light sales fell 17% in dollars, while volume dropped a whopping 21% which is sharply ahead of the 6% drop in sales dollars and 11% drop in volume that Bud Light had suffered during the week ended April 8.
