Comedian Joe Rogan called transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney a “confused person” — and bashed Bud Light for its disastrous partnership with the influencer in a recent episode of his hit podcast.
Rogan also slammed companies like Target for “shoving” its LGBTQ Pride month merchandise “down everyone’s throats” and accused them of “proselytizing.”
Mulvaney, 26, sparked immense backlash after she announced a partnership with Bud Light, which sent her custom-made cans featuring her face in April to celebrate the conclusion of her “365 Days of Girlhood” series on TikTok, which chronicled her gender transition.
The deal outraged conservatives, who blasted the company for going “woke” and called for a boycott of the beer, which, two months later, has threatened Bud Light’s position as the No. 1 beer in America.
Its parent company Anheuser-Busch has reportedly lost $27 billion in market value since it rolled out the ad campaign.
“Can you imagine, you’re just gonna send a f–king can to some confused person,” Rogan remarked during a recent episode featuring comedian Theo Von.
“You send that person a f–king can with their face on, and your company loses $20 billion. That is wild s–, man.”
The former “Fear Factor” host has taken shots at the Mulvaney-Bud Light partnership before. In April, he bashed the influencer as an “attention whore,” while talking about the company’s failed attempt to move away from its bread-and-butter “frat culture.”
Bud Light sales continued to plunge again, dropping 23.9% for the week ended May 27, which was slightly better than the 25.7% drop a week prior and marked the first time that the sales decline didn’t grow worse versus the previous week since the partnership with Mulvaney, according to data from Bump Williams Consulting and NielsonIQ.
In his latest episode, the comic also blasted companies like Target, which lost a whopping $13.8 billion over the last two weeks of May after customers railed against its LGBTQ-friendly kids’ clothing.
The ongoing losses are a result of an ongoing 14-day boycott that was triggered by Target’s release of “PRIDE,” an LGBTQ-friendly clothing line that includes clothing for children and “tuck-friendly” women’s swimwear with “extra crotch coverage.”
Rogan called the clothing “weird.”
“We’re seeing that now where we never saw that before, where people are going, ‘Enough. Stop shoving this down everybody’s throat,'” Rogan said on his show. “When I go to Target, I don’t want to see, like, f–king tuck pants, where they’re designed to help you tuck your d–k. That’s not normal, and I don’t want that right in front of everybody. It’s weird.”
“There’s a lot of just f–king real weirdness with this group of people that is trying to, like, change the way people view sexuality and gender and all these different things,” he continued.
“It’s like they’re proselytizing.”
