Country music singer John Rich to scrap Bud Light from his Nashville bar amid Dylan Mulvaney backlash

Country music singer John Rich is in search of a new beer to replace Bud Light at his Nashville bar following the backlash to Dylan Mulvaney's partnership with Anheuser-Busch.

Dylan Mulvaney is a 26-year-old biological male who has amassed nearly 11 million followers on TikTok for the "Days of Girlhood" video series. Mulvaney, who has not undergone gender-reassignment surgery, claims that he is a girl. Critics view Mulvaney's impersonation of a female to be aiding the erasure of women.

The transgender social media star caused a stir last week after launching a promotional partnership with Bud Light. The beer company sent the influencer a Bud Light can with Mulvaney's face on it.

On Monday, Rich polled his more than 900,000 Twitter followers: "Are you thirsty for a Bud Light now?" Over 30,000 of his followers voted, and 97.5% responded, "Hell Naw," versus only 2.5% who answered, "Yep."

On Wednesday, Rich hinted at a Bud Light boycott and asked his Twitter followers, "What beer should my bar Redneck Riviera in Nashville replace Bud Light with?"

Rich founded the Redneck Riviera bar and restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee.

Fellow country music singer Travis Tritt also hit back at Bud Light this week.

"I will be deleting all Anheuser-Busch products from my tour hospitality rider. I know many other artists who are doing the same," Tritt declared on Wednesday.

Tritt added that other country music artists are boycotting Bud Light, but not going public "for fear of being ridiculed and canceled."

The country music legend said Anheuser-Busch used to be a great company when it was American-owned, but had become "unrecognizable" since being acquired by Belgian-Brazilian brewing company InBev in 2008.

Kid Rock reacted to the Mulvaney partnership with the beer company by shooting cases of Budweiser beer with a gun.

Kid Rock yelled, "F*** Bud Light, and f*** Anheuser-Busch. Have a nice day!"

Conservative rapper Tom MacDonald lampooned Bud Light for putting Mulvaney's face on a beer can to celebrate Dylan's "365 Days of Girlhood."

"Hey Bud Light, my mom's been a woman for 23,725 days – you didn't put her face on a can," MacDonald said in the video. "Rosa Parks ain't on a can. Mother Teresa ain't on a can. Joan of Arc ain't on a can. Mother Mary ain't on a can, and she gave birth to Jesus."
