In a recent tweet, Elon Musk, the head of Twitter, made a controversial statement about one of America’s most popular beers.
Musk wrote, “Bud Light? More like Bud Sh***y. Who even drinks that stuff?”
The tweet quickly went viral, with many Twitter users expressing their agreement with Musk’s assessment of the beer.
However, others were quick to criticize the billionaire for his comments, calling them insensitive and out of touch.
In response to the backlash, Musk tweeted again, saying, “Look, I’m just being honest. Bud Light is a terrible beer.
If you want to drink something that tastes like water, go ahead. But don’t expect me to pretend it’s good.”
The controversy has sparked a debate about the role of social media in shaping public opinion, and whether or not it is appropriate for public figures like Elon Musk to use their platforms to express personal opinions about products and brands.
Regardless of where you stand on the issue, it’s clear that Musk’s comments have put Bud Light in the hot seat.
Will the beer giant be able to weather the storm of criticism, or will it be forced to rebrand and reformulate in order to win back consumers’ trust? Only time will tell.
