Lauren Boebert drew laughter from a conservative conference for giving Bud Light a nickname while using a transphobic slur.Boebert, a Colorado Republican, derailed corporate "wokeism" during her speech at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver on Friday.

She highlighted conservatives' boycotts against Bud Light, the beer brand that faced right-wing outrage for sending a commemorative beer can to influencer and activist Dylan Mulvaney to celebrate the one-year mark of her gender transition.

During the GOP lawmaker's speech on Friday, she invoked a term for transgender individuals that is widely viewed as offensive."There's wokeism in the corporate world," Boebert said. "Bud Light, or t***** fluid, they have lost $27 billion in revenue because you took a stand."Her remark comes as advocates sound the alarm about rising anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment in the United States amid what they view as a resurgence of homophobic or transphobic rhetoric, as well as an increase in new anti-LGBTQ+ legislation.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), at least 491 bills targeting LGBTQ+ rights have been introduced across the U.S.
