A new report from the New York Post finds sales of Bud Light have dropped a staggering 21% since the company partnered with transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney.
From the NY POST:
A staggering sales hit for Bud Light is worsening with each passing week following an ill-fated marketing tie-up with transgender social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney — with the latest weekly figures showing a staggering 21% drop.
During the week ended April 22 — the most recent industry data available — Bud Light sales plunged 21%, accelerating from a 17% slide a week earlier and an initial weekly drop of 6% when the controversy kicked off during the first week of April, according to Nielsen IQ and Bump Williams Consulting.
Meanwhile, beer volumes — the number of cases sold, whether in packs of 12, 18 or 24 cans — dropped an even steeper 26% last week, versus a 21% drop a week earlier and an initial drop of 11%, according to the data.
