WASHINGTON, D.C. – Lawmakers reacted to Anheuser-Busch’s sharp decline in sales in the wake of the controversy over the company’s decision to partner with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.

Mulvaney revealed she was sent a can of Bud Light featuring an image of her face in celebration for Mulvaney’s year of “girlhood” and in preparation for March Madness. The promotion resulted in several calls for boycotts, particularly among conservative commentators.

The beer company and its brands Bud Light and Budweiser faced net losses for four weeks in April leading up to April 29, a Beer Business Daily report found. This followed initial reports that showed Bud Light in-store sales dropped 26% in the week of April 22.

The report stated, “A-B volumes went down 12.5% while Molson Coors was up 7.6% and Constellation up 3.8%. Bud Light was down 21.4% while Coors Light was up 10.9% and Miller Lite up 12.8%.”

Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., told Fox News Digital, “If there’s ever a case for a corporation to stay away from this type of issue – they made beer the last time I checked. They don’t make policy. If they want to make policy, get into politics. If they believe in it that strongly. I’m surprised that’s it’s just 12 percent.”

He added, “The ones in my state, the consumers…What happened with Bud Light is they lost a lot of customers. There are a lot of past consumers of Bud Light who will never drink another Bud Light beer in their life, including me.”

Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., remarked, “I don’t really care one way or the other if a corporation weighs in on political matters, and I don’t really drink much beer.”

Rep. John Rose, R-Tenn., told the outlet, “I think generally corporations should stick to their knitting and sell products and develop great brands, and I think when they try to change and weigh in on social issues, that’s always going to be a mistake for businesses.”

Rep. John Duarte, R-Calif., suggested, “It’s up to them, it’s their brand. They can do as they want. And if sales go up, sales go up. If sales go down, sales go down, but they’re a private company and they can play their brand how they like.”

Sen. J.D. Vance, R-Ohio, said, “Anheuser-Busch did learn a lesson, which I think other corporations should take to heart too which is that you can’t go to war against the people who buy your product and expect them to keep on buying. Conservative voters, Republican voters are not idiots, and they know when a corporation is going to war against their values. Anheuser-Busch made a big mistake, and they’re paying for it.”
