‘The View’ co-host Whoopi Goldberg flips out over Bud Light boycotts: ‘IT’S JUST BEER’

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg fumed over boycotts of Bud Light after the beer company did an ad campaign with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney and declared, “it’s just beer” during Monday’s episode.

Goldberg declared she was a huge Budweiser fan before asking what people were so angry about.

“The company puts out a statement saying they didn’t mean to address an issue that divided people, but I want to know what are you so angry about? Beer does not have, I mean it’s not Democrat or Republican, it doesn’t have belief system, it’s just beer!” Goldberg said.

Co-host Sunny Hostin said America is “highly transphobic” and those boycotting the beer were making it out to be a “transphobic issue.”

Anheuser-Busch recently sent Mulvaney packs of Bud Light with the influencer’s face printed on the cans as part of an ad for the beer company’s March Madness contest and as a way to celebrate a full year of “girlhood.”

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin said it was a “smart move” by Bud Light and that they needed to make “inroads with the LGBTQ community,” who Griffin said “tends to like craft beer and skinny cocktails, not Bud Light.”

“They’re reaching a community that is probably not drinking enough Bud Light,” Griffin added.
