 Anheuser-Busch InBev CEO Brendan Whitworth apologized for its sponsorship deal with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney. The deal sparked a massive backlash and led to a $6 billion decrease in market value.
The company became the latest to focus on woke social issues placing them on the forefront of favorite brands in corporate America.

Whitworth said, “We never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people. We are in the business of bringing people together over a beer.”
He added, “My time serving this country taught me the importance of accountability and the values upon which America was founded: freedom, hard work and respect for one another. As CEO of Anheuser-Busch, I am focused on building and protecting our remarkable history and heritage. I care deeply about this country, this company, our brands and our partners.” He ended his statement with, I spend much of my time traveling across America, listening to and learning from our customers, distributors and others. Moving forward, I will continue to work tirelessly to bring great beers to consumers across our nation.”

In his statement, Whitworth did not specifically mention the sponsorship deal or reports that senior executives were not informed about the Mulvaney rollout.
