DeSantis endorses Guinness Beer months after their release of transsexual child’s commercial

Published on

Speaking on The Benny Show, DeSantis said: ‘Why would you want to drink Bud Light? I mean, like, honestly that’s like them rubbing our faces in it and it’s like these companies that do this, if they never have any response, they’re just going to keep doing it. 

‘So, if you as a consumer are like … “Like, yeah, they’re doing that, but I’m just going to keep drinking anyways.” Well, then they’re going to keep doing it.’

‘You know, my wife and I, they (bars) don’t have (Budweiser) here if we ever go out to just have a beer — which admittedly we don’t have the opportunity to do that like we used to, you know — we actually like the stout, Guinness.

‘Years ago we went to Dublin, we went to some other places, and we’ve always been a fan ever since,’

Ironically, just last Christmas, Guinness’s parent company Diageo (same as Anhueiser Busch to Bud Light) ran an ad in strong support of the transgender community.

The ad follows an elderly man who begins to secretly teach himself how to apply makeup.

The grandfather can be seen using red lipstick from his wife and buying eyeshadow, before locking himself in his bathroom to practice making himself up.

Then the man’s family arrives for the holidays, at which point he gestures for his transgender granddaughter to follow him into the bathroom. He applies a full face of makeup to his grandchild.

When they come out of the bathroom, they are greeted with an emotional display of support and love from their family. The commercial ends with the grandfather raising a glass in a toast.

One may argue that the ad by Guinness’s parent company is a much stronger display of support for the trans community than what has caused such a stir for Bud Light gifting a can to a transgender social media influencer.

Many who have jumped on the boycott bandwagon of these pro-trans companies, often find themselves still using or even dependent upon other products made by the same company, or products by companies they simply are unaware also support the trans community.

As we broke over the weekend, the owner of Central Florida’s Grills Seafood went viral with his decision to discontinue selling Bud Light suddenly over the weekend. In an interview with Fox35, owner Joe Penovich said his decision was based on religious reasons, and cannot align with the transgender community in any way, and is looking at how to approach removing the rest of Anhuesier Busch products from his inventory as they “no longer align with his values.”

But there are over 125 major companies and brands that have all come out in strong support of the transgender community that also are patronized by Grills Seafood. Those include Facebook, (where he made his official statement on his decision) Pepsi Co, American Express, Amazon, Nestle, Kellogg, AT&T many many more. Boycotting all of those brands, would essentially make it impossible for him and many others to continue to conduct business. We will see how loyal to their values they really are. Joe has already said he’s willing to lose everything in order to stay true to his faith.
