Buttigieg’s hubby lashes out over Bud Light boycott: ‘might want to start bottling your tears’

Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s other half waded back into the culture war with his own fired-up take on Bud Light’s latest promotion that left some suggesting “You should really leave the talking to your husband.”

Despite social media silence and a wave of boycotts, Anheuser-Busch has yet to back down from its decision to hire a man who thinks he’s a girl, Dylan Mulvaney, to represent their brand. With his own track record of promoting his lifestyle towards kids, Chasten Buttigieg, partner to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, took to Twitter over the weekend to defend the beverage company’s marketing decisions.

“If you’re upset about a beer company supporting civil rights,” he tweeted, “you might want to start bottling your tears. LGBTQ people drink water, too. Gonna boycott that next?”

Naturally, with a new edition of his memoir coming out discussing growing up gay aimed at children as young as 12 years old, the alphabet activist may have seen the backlash to Bud Light as a little too close to home. He had similarly lashed out regarding efforts by Mars, Inc. to diversify M&M’s spokes-candies when Sec. Buttigieg was called out again over his failings on the supply chain while on paternity leave.

“This morning the twins helped pick out their sweaters, scooted down the stairs, ran to their chairs, and sat at the table eating scrambled eggs with forks. They said ‘bye bye dada’ on the way out the door. It’s been 17 months. You need new material. Go yell at an M&M,” he had posted.

For his latest attempt at woke projection, Buttigieg was rewarded with a thorough reality check on what it was about Anheuser-Busch’s sponsorship of Mulvaney that was a bridge too far.

“It’s cosplay, not civil rights. A man cannot become a woman under any circumstance. And it is a mockery of woman,” one wrote while another asked, “It’s not about civil rights. What civil rights is Mulvaney being deprived of?”

Buttigieg even took heat from those who, like Gays Against Groomers, want nothing to do with pushing their lifestyle on young people. After one person pointed out, “You are advocating for the removal of real women. This MAN is making a mockery of womanhood. But you wouldn’t know that because you’re a gay man,” another responded, “It’s not because he’s a gay man. It’s because he is strongly rooted to the TQ. Don’t lump them all together. Many are trying to untie the link.”

“Good point. I have close friends who are married gay couple. They, too, want to distance themselves from the Trans movement. They absolutely disagree with how they are bringing children into it.”

However, even Bud Light’s vice president of marketing had proven herself to be out of touch in an interview that surfaced just before Mulvaney’s sponsorship where she embraced the woke mindset and spoke to her aim at inclusivity.

“It means shifting the tone. It means having a campaign that’s truly inclusive and feels lighter and brighter and different and appeals to women and to men. And representation is sort of the heart of evolution. You gotta see people who reflect you in the work,” Alissa Heinerscheid said.
