Twitter Boycott Against Budweiser For Immigration Commercial Backfires


You may have caught the heartwarming Super Bowl commercial for Budweiser beer during the Super Bowl last night.

It told the story of Adolphus Busch, the German creator of the brand, and his journey to America with the beer’s co-creator Eberhard Anheuser. The commercial boasted a strong message about the pursuit of the American Dream, which apparently rubbed some people the wrong way.

Several Trump supporters took to Twitter to write about their disapproval with the commercial with the hashtag, #BoycottBudwiser.

However, many took notice that the hashtag was spelled incorrectly, while others wrote that the notion of boycotting a beer manufacturer on the Super Bowl is “un-American.” Many added that a lot of the “boycotters” really must have a hatred for immigrants if they’re willing to stop drinking Budweiser, one of the most popular beers in the United States.
