In a surprising move, Twitter CEO and tech billionaire Elon Musk have called on the public to boycott one of America’s most popular beers, Bud Light.
Musk took to Twitter (of course) to share his thoughts on the beer, calling it “overrated” and “just not that good.”
The tweet, which quickly went viral, has apparently had a devastating impact on Bud Light sales. According to industry experts, sales of the beer have dropped by a staggering 80 percent since Musk’s tweet.
Many people have expressed their confusion and disbelief at Musk’s sudden vendetta against Bud Light. Some have speculated that he may have been sponsored by a rival beer company, or that he simply has too much time on his hands.
However, Musk himself seems unfazed by the backlash. In fact, he has doubled down on his stance, calling for a complete boycott of all Anheuser-Busch products, including Budweiser, Michelob, and Stella Artois.
“This is not just about Bud Light,” Musk tweeted. “It’s about holding big corporations accountable for their products. We deserve better than watered-down beer and lazy advertising campaigns.”
Despite Musk’s passionate pleas, it remains to be seen whether the public will truly abandon their beloved Bud Light.
Some have even taken to social media to mock Musk’s crusade, sharing photos of themselves drinking Bud Light with captions like “sorry, Elon, this one’s for you.”
Only time will tell whether Musk’s boycott will have a lasting impact on the beer industry. For now, all eyes are on the billionaire tech guru as he continues to use his massive Twitter following to promote his personal opinions on everything from cryptocurrency to fast food.
