After promoting a sponsorship deal with Bud Light, trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney received shocking public bullying and transphobic abuse for months, which she now reveals in a heartbreaking video had a massive impact on her mental health. To make matters worse, she reveals that Bud Light never reached out to ensure she was ok.
Bud Light Goes Trans
In a viral TikTok video that has taken social media by storm, famous influencer Dylan Mulvaney shares her harrowing experience after participating in an ad campaign for Bud Light.
Little did she know that her innocent Instagram video of enjoying a Bud Light would unleash a storm of transphobia and threats.
Conservatives and anti-trans campaigners quickly launched a boycott of Bud Light, while some individuals resorted to vandalizing the brand’s products in stores.
With over 1.5 million likes and 8 million views, Mulvaney’s TikTok video resonated deeply with viewers worldwide.
“I’ve Been Scared To Leave My House. I Have Been Ridiculed in Public. I’ve Been Followed. And I Have Felt a Loneliness I Wouldn’t Wish on Anyone”
In the emotionally charged clip, she addresses the lack of support from Bud Light, stating, “I was waiting for the brand to reach out to me, but they never did. And for months now, I’ve been scared to leave my house. I have been ridiculed in public. I’ve been followed. And I have felt a loneliness I wouldn’t wish on anyone.”
Revealing that Bud Light failed to support Mulvaney left many viewers appalled by the company.
“For a company to hire a trans person and then not publicly stand by them is worse, in my opinion, than not hiring a trans person at all,” Mulvaney argues.
A Shocking Silence From Bud Light…
This silence from Bud Light allows customers to express their transphobic and hateful views without consequence.
In a heartfelt plea for support and unity, Mulvaney calls upon her followers to stand alongside all transgender individuals, “If you follow me, if I’ve made you smile, if you care about me, I need you to care about every trans person, and I need you to support us, and I need you to stand by us.”
Despite all the backlash, Mulvaney proudly affirms, “I can look in the mirror and see the woman that I am and that I love being.”
“I’m So Sorry They Did Not Stand By You. That’s Awful and None of This Is Your Fault. Keep Your Head up Babe”
The comments flooded in with support for Mulvaney and the trans community at this challenging time, “I’m SO sorry they did not stand by you. That’s awful and none of this is your fault. Keep your head up babe.”
“You didn’t deserve any of this, you’re a beautiful soul. Stay true.” Another user added.
