UFC CEO Dana White says patriots 'should be drinking gallons of Bud Light'

UFC CEO Dana White told Tucker Carlson that people who view themselves as patriots "should be drinking gallons of Bud Light." White claimed that such individuals "are way more aligned with Anheuser-Busch than ... with other beer companies."

The beer brand faced massive consumer backlash this year after enlisting transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney to promote the beverage.

In October, a UFC and Anheuser-Busch partnership, which will involve the promotion of Bud Light, was announced.

"Anheuser-Busch and Bud Light were UFC’s original beer sponsors more than fifteen years ago," White said, according to a press release about the partnership. "I'm proud to announce we are back in business together. There are many reasons why I chose to go with Anheuser-Busch and Bud Light, most importantly because I feel we are very aligned when it comes to our core values and what the UFC brand stands for. I'm looking forward to all of the incredible things we will do in the years ahead."

Carlson also brought up Bud Light while interviewing Kid Rock, who opened fire on cases of the drink earlier this year. But during the interview with Carlson, the rocker said that he does not want to "drown them because they made a mistake."

But other people are not in favor of letting the company off of the hook.

"Did Bud Light ever, at the very least, say 'sorry' to women for the cosplay promotion? This is real easy for the brand, folks. Reconciliation requires acknowledgment, otherwise, hell no," Dana Loesch tweeted.

"The Bud Light boycott is the one time in modern history when conservatives have staged an effective boycott against a major corporate brand. If we back away from this victory now it will show that we’ve learned nothing and don’t want to win. Not going to happen. Boycott continues," Matt Walsh tweeted.
