Country music star Brantley Gilbert interrupted his concert Saturday night to smash a can of Bud Light on the stage.
During his show at Indian Mountain ATV Park in Alabama, a fan threw a Bud Light can onto the stage for Gilbert.
The star took a long look at the beer before smashing it onto the stage and yelling: “F*ck that.”
Another fan threw a different beer brand on stage.
Gilbert quit drinking in 2011 but tossed that beer to his drummer saying, “You ain’t got a hair on your ass if you don’t shotgun that son of a b*tch.”
Even though Brantley Gilbert doesn’t drink anymore his reaction to someone throwing him a Bud light was Awesome🙌🏼👏👏👏😂❤️.#GoWokeGoBroke pic.twitter.com/HYDfApZXmx

Budweiser is trying to contain the damage from the Mulvaney marketing stunt.
They put out a new pro-America ad and the CEO finally gave a statement.
Neither has worked as the backlash grows.
As Slay News reported, Budweiser’s latest advertisement features the famous Clydesdale horses crossing the country as the narrator delivers a patriotic message.
The ad says:
“This is a story bigger than beer.
“This is the story of the American spirit.
“Brewed for those who found opportunity in challenge and hope in tomorrow.”
