‘Spineless poser’: Kid Rock draws conservative ire after reportedly being seen sipping Bud Light

Accusations of hypocrisy flew at Kid Rock after a picture of the Trump-supporting conservative artist enjoying a can of Bud Light at a recent concert went viral on social media.

Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, was among those reacting extremely negatively to the Anheuser-Busch brand’s controversial partnering with transgender TikTok influencer Dylan Mulvaney to hawk the popular low-calorie beer, a move that will go down as one of the most disastrous marketing decisions of all time.

Back in April, then the Bud Light boycotts were just picking up steam, he posted a video to social media of him opening fire on several cases of the familiar blue and white cans with an AR-15, “F*ck Bud Light. F*ck Anheuser-Busch!” Rock said after he riddled the packages with bullets.

Months later, Rock has apparently let bygones be bygones when the image of him holding onto one of those blue and white cans at a Colt Ford concert in Nashville on Thursday was published by the celebrity gossip website TMZ.

“That’s right, the same guy who exclaimed, ‘F*** Bud Light and f*** Anheuser-Busch’ a few months ago was at Skydeck in Nashville Thursday night, taking in Colt Ford’s show,” reported TMZ. “The former rocker seemed pretty relaxed as he clutched the blue can, taking sips while chatting and laughing with some friends. Unclear if there were other beer options available, but Kid Rock’s choice seems pretty shocking considering how hard he went in on the brand earlier this year.”

Twitter/X users shared their takes on Rock’s change of tune and his poor judgment of being caught swilling Bud Light in public.

In other Bud Light-related news, the NFL’s wokest team, the former Washington Redskins, proudly announced that they’ve renewed their partnership with the brand.

Rock’s getting caught with a Bud Light has to come as a major disappointment for many after his target practice video energized the boycott of the beer in its early stages and could be a sign that the protests against the brand could be petering out.
