protest a partnership with a transgender influencer.Dylan Mulvaney, a trans advocate who has obtained a large following due to her Day 365 Of Girlhood video series on TikTok, shared a personalized Bud Light can with her face on it in commemoration of her one-year anniversary since beginning her gender transition.It almost immediately drew backlash against the beer brand and its parent company, Anheuser-Busch, leading to public figures like Kid Rock—whose real name is Robert James Ritchie—and countless others online to voice their displeasure and call for boycotts.Earlier this week, Rock, donning a backward MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat, posted a video to his social media networks that showed him shooting numerous bullets at several cases of Bud Light propped up on a table near a river."Grandpa is feeling a little frisky today," he said, prior to blasting the cases and turning towards the camera with his middle finger raised."F*** Bud Light and f*** Anheuser-Busch," Rock shouted in the aftermath, never specifically mentioning Mulvaney or the trans community.Following the posting of Rock's video, an alleged image of him began popping up on social media networks including Twitter, Reddit and Facebook.
It shows Rock, wearing a Coors hat, chugging a bottle of Bud Light while sitting next to a drag queen.The photo was reportedly taken by the global multimedia digital agency World Red Eye (WRE).
A page on the agency's website titled "Transformation of Drag" shows Rock sitting next to a drag queen identified as Wanda on September 26, 2003, at the now permanently closed nightclub Prive in Miami, Florida.
