It’s safe to say that the Bud Light boycott has brought a proud company to its knees. Anheuser-Busch was once a titan within the beverage industry. But it has lost billions of dollars, seen its market value plummet, and is hated by a once-loyal fan base. All because they chose wokeness over their customers.
But there might be a silver lining to this story. You might not have known that the family who originally founded the company sold it to a Brazilian company in 2008. Now, the heir to the family business has just made an offer that InBev might not refuse. And he is promising to do something amazing.
From Fox News:
The heir to the Anheuser-Busch company has offered to buy back his family’s old company from its parent company if it was looking to sell it.
Billy Busch, whose family sold Anheuser-Busch to InBev in 2008, declared he would be the “first in line” to buy back the company and “make that brand great again.”
The beermaker heir provided comments on an episode of conservative host Tomi Lahren’s “Fearless” this week, almost five months after Anheuser-Busch endured a major boycott for making trans woman Dylan Mulvaney one of Bud Light’s spokespeople.
Billy Busch is offering to buy Anheuser-Busch from InBev after his family sold it to the Brazilian corporate over ten years ago. Busch said that he would make the “brand great again” harkening to the famous slogan of Donald Trump.
Busch seems to think InBev doesn’t understand American customers. Those within the company who chose a transgender to endorse Bud Light had infamously criticized the brand for being “fratty.”
The Anheuser-Busch heir pointed out that moving away from appealing to “fratty” customers wasn’t very “inclusive” for a company that prides itself on being “woke.”
Busch pointed out his father, who continued working long into his 90s, understood his customers. He would even keep selling the beer to bars after it had become a national icon. Busch seems to understand something the big corporation does not.
But will they sell it to him? We can’t predict that. But, if they keep losing money, they might not have much of a choice.
