Podcasting titan Joe Rogan spoke out and shockingly stands with Anheuser-Busch in a recent episode of this show as the company is currently attempting to deal with the fallout of taking part in a paid marketing engagement centered around a highly controversial transgender influencer.
As part of this past Wednesday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience” with guest Comedian Sam Tallent, Rogan chose to speak out regarding the controversy that is flooding around Bud Light’s engagement with Dylan Mulvaney.
The pair of men cracked cans of Bud Light as they started to discuss the controversy and drink the beer.
“Like — what they’re doing is just spreading the brand to an extra group of people. Why — If something is good, do you give a f*** who’s got it?” exclaimed Rogan. “Like, would we do this with cheesecake? Like, you know what I’m saying? Like, if there was like a bomb-a** cheesecake and all of a sudden, you know, some radical group like Antifa really got into the cheesecake. We would be like, ‘F*** this.’ And if the Cheesecake Factory sent Antifa a cheesecake, you know, ‘for 10 more years of chaos,’ you know, like celebratory.”
However, Rogan did state that he did enjoy quite a bit of the backlash being sent the way of Bud Light, including the over-the-top response from Kid Rock as he chose to shoot a large amount of Bud Light cans.
“But on the other hand I love Kid Rock’s video. Because I love that kind of thinking,” stated Rogan. “Not even that I agree with it? I like wild people. I like a dude who takes a machine gun to a stack of Bud Lights and is like, ‘F*** Anheuser-Busch!’”
“But I mean, where’s he gonna go now? You gonna go to Coors?” he went on. “Don’t they all support like LBGTQ+AI, whatever the hell else they’re attaching to it, issues?”
Rogan went on to add a bit later that he thought it was quite “funny” that people seemed to be “super outraged” because of the controversy.
“How is that the big deal?” concluded Rogan. “I think it’s goofy. Because I think that person’s goofy. But if you want to hire a goofy person, like, who gives a s***? It’s kind of hilarious. It was also just a can with that person’s face on it. That’s all it was. It wasn’t like something they were selling.”
