TX Rep Dan Crenshaw tries to boycott Bud Light for partnership with trans influencer but ends up embarrassing himself

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (TX)

Conservatives keep attacking Bud Light for its partnership with transgender social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney. And they keep ending up looking foolish. 

The latest person is Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw.

From Raw Story:

The Houston Chronicle reported Crenshaw was triggered by seeing a trans woman holding a can of Bud Light in an Instagram post this weekend. Crenshaw announced that he was going to throw out all the Bud Light in his fridge. "Saw Bud Light's stupid ad campaign," Crenshaw rants in the video. "So guess what we're going to do? We're going to throw out every single Bud Light we've got in the fridge." 

So, according to the article, Crenshaw showed his refrigerator full of other beers such as Karbach, Crush City IPA, Dos Equis and others.  However, folks watching the video noted something which Crenshaw obviously didn't.

 "Who wants to tell him?" replied JayWolfe3802 on Instagram. The comment comes from a user that clearly knows the Karbach in Crenshaw's fridge is owned by Bud Light's parent company Anheuser-Busch Inbev, which Crenshaw was ranting about. 

 Dos Equis, the Mexican lager known for its "Most Interesting Man in the World" is owned by Heineken, which tends to give more money to Democrats during four of the last five elections, Open Secrets said. 

 "You really gotta use those research skills you use when gerrymandering on bud lights beers bud," replied someone named kirby_carlock. "If you are going to do cancel culture make sure you do it right snowflake."

Way to go, Dan.

On one hand, it's funny. But the other hand, it's a sad commentary about how people are willing bend over backwards to make fools of themselves for social media. A little advice, Dan. People elected you to serve their interest on Congress, not to be a social media jackass
