In a bizarre turn of events, it seems that Twitter head Elon Musk may be partially to blame for Bud Light’s recent billion-dollar loss.
The beer company had been struggling for some time, but things took a turn for the worse when Musk tweeted out a scathing critique of the beverage.
“Who drinks Bud Light? Tastes like carbonated urine,” Musk wrote in a tweet that quickly went viral.
Almost immediately, social media was flooded with responses from outraged Bud Light fans, who accused Musk of being out of touch and elitist. Many vowed to boycott Musk’s companies, including Tesla and SpaceX, in retaliation.
The fallout was swift and severe for Bud Light, which saw sales plummet in the wake of Musk’s tweet. According to sources close to the company, losses have now topped $1 billion, a staggering blow to the beer giant’s bottom line.
But while the situation may seem dire, some insiders say that Bud Light is already working on a plan to recover from the debacle.
“We’re exploring all options, from launching a new ad campaign to partnering with social media influencers,” a spokesperson for the company said.
As for Musk, he seems unbothered by the whole affair. When asked about the controversy, he simply shrugged and said, “Hey, I was just giving my opinion. If people can’t handle that, that’s on them.”
It remains to be seen whether Bud Light can bounce back from this massive loss, but one thing is for sure: the power of social media has never been clearer.

Uh, I think the sales plummeted due to the marketing with trans related cans and people not from Elon Musk’s comment, no?
Lol…this has NOTHING to do with Elon Musk. This has EVERYTHING to do with the ignorance and stupidity of Budweiser (1) hiring a marketing director who didn’t know what she was doing (2) hiring a marketing director who was uneducated enough to know to do a study on possible fall out of such a marketing ploy (3) a marketing director who needs to be fired, if she hasn’t been already. The situation Budweiser is in, is their own fault. I’m out here with the REAL people, not sitting high on some board with people who have no idea how to even fill their own gas tanks. I could have told them this was a very bad idea. People are sick and tired of hearing and seeing garbage ads about trans people. Women are sick and tired of men trying to replace them and advertisers falling all over themselves to bow down to them like they’re some kind of god.
As the meme goes…. If a man wants to pretend he’s a woman, that’s up to him. BUT, if a man wants us to pretend he’s a woman, that’s up to us.
And one more thing…..These trans men, have NO idea what is is to be a woman and their behavior proves it. Real women don’t act the way trans women do. Trans women actually come across as more of a “madam’ than a woman.
