Transgender Dylan Mulvaney is complaining that he can’t sleep after his “woke” campaign with Bud Light has destroyed the company.
The backlash has been so intense against the beermaker that billions of dollars have been wiped off the value of parent company Anheuser-Busch.
As Slay News reported earlier, Anheuser-Busch’s stock value has plummeted so severely that it’s just been downgraded by a major bank.
The thought of America’s number one beer going bust in just a few weeks’ time over his campaign is apparently causing Mulvaney to lose some sleep.
Mulveny appeared on the “Dear Schuyler” podcast earlier this week, in an episode titled “How do you find joy in the midst of hate?”
The host, Schuyler Bailar, was the first transgender athlete to compete on an NCAA Division I men’s team.
In a segment played before the interview, she said she was “really excited about this despite all of the transphobia, hatred, and barrage of negativity that Dylan has had to interface with.”
The conversation, Bailar said, was intended to “help shed some light on what it’s like to deal with these kinds of comments regularly, how we hold on to ourselves, our truths, and our joy throughout all the transphobia and hate.”
Despite the widespread backlash over his campaign, most of it has targeted Bud Light and Anheuser-Busch and not Mulvaney.
The company and its marketing executive trashed the brand’s traditional drinkers in an effort to go “woke.”
Most of the brand’s now-former customer base had never heard of Mulvaney before the campaign.
In fact, Mulvaney was completely unheard of until he came out as “transgender” last year, a move that has made him rich and famous.
Americans across the country have been boycotting Anheuser-Busch products in protest of the corporate “woke” agenda and have no interest in Mulvaney or his condition.
However, according to Mulvaney, this is all about him.
“I remember, like, even in college — this was just a few years ago — like, if one person potentially didn’t like me, it would keep me up at night,” Mulvaney said.
“I was like, ‘Oh God, how do I fix this?’
“And now there are hundreds of thousands of people that do not like me, and I still sometimes can’t sleep.
“But in a weird way, it has been a blessing to sort of break that people-pleasing mentality because … there’s no way I can win those people over.”
After Bailar said later in the interview that Mulvaney’s “rest” is “part of that fight” against “transphobia,” Mulvaney responded that “there is a guilt sometimes, when like, you know, you’d go to do something fun or you’d go on vacation or you know — but those are part of the rest, and it’s part of the recharge and the privilege because we are very privileged to rest in moments.
“But again, it’s like, it’s the long game, it’s a long race.”
Later in the podcast, Mulvaney said that “the word that keeps popping into my head throughout this entire time has been grace — and like, giving each other grace, giving ourselves grace, even I — dare I say, this might be, this is controversial — but the people that are targeting us right now, I’m trying to find grace for them because I know that something in them, this was, you know, planted from something else.
“And I can only hope that they will see the beauty and the humanity and the importance of an identity, and not try to strip that away.”
