In the months since Bud Light teamed up with the transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, the company has lost billions of dollars as conservatives everywhere have launched a boycott of the brand from going woke.

In the wake of this, country music stars have been taking sides, with John Rich refusing to serve Bud Light at his bars while Garth Brooks stood by the beer company. When the country music star Tyler Farr was asked about recent comments Brooks made in which he said he wouldn’t stop serving Bud Light, he was quick to dismiss this entire controversy.

Farr Addresses Bud Light Scandal

“I mean, that doesn’t offend me at all,” Farr told Fox News of what Brooks had to say. “I live out in the country. I kind of mind my own damn business. I think more people should mind their own damn business, to be completely honest, the world would be a hell of a lot better place.”

“If people want to drink Bud Light, go ahead. I don’t drink beer anyway, so it really doesn’t affect me,” he continued. “But it is kind of like the last couple of years in our society has just been just full of silly s—, just a bunch of silly stuff. Just nonsense.”

That being said, Farr doesn’t understand why Bud Light decided to make a statement with the Mulvaney campaign.

“Why are we using beer cans to make a statement?” he questioned. “I don’t care if you’re a guy and want to be a girl. If you’re a girl and want to be a guy. If you’re homosexual… I do not care. I do what I do, and people do what they do. And as long as they don’t try to push it on my family, my kid, and affect their own God given decision, then I don’t have any problem with it.”

‘People Get A Little Too Involved In It’

Farr concluded by indicating that he feels that people on both sides of this argument have taken things a bit too far.

“I just think it gets kind of silly when people are trying to make huge statements… on a beer can, and I think people get a little too involved in it, too,” he said. “Like [on] social media just gets kind of like, okay, guys, come on. If you don’t want to drink it, don’t drink it. Drink Miller Lite. If you do, great, don’t care.”

Since teaming up with Mulvaney back in March, Bud Light has lost billions of dollars, and things are only getting worse for them. The New York Post reported that in the week that ended on June 17, Bud Light sales dropped by a whopping 28.5% from where they were at this time last year.

Brooks Stands By Bud Light

This comes after Brooks refused to turn on Bud Light, saying that he loves “inclusiveness” and “diversity.”

“I get it, everybody’s got their opinions. But inclusiveness is always going to be me,” he explained, according to The Tennessean. “I think diversity is the answer to the problems that are here and the answer to the problems that are coming. So I love diversity. All-inclusive, so all are welcome. I understand that might not be other people’s opinions, but that’s OK, man. They have their opinions, they have their beliefs. I have mine.”

That’s why Brooks told Billboard that his bar in Nashville will keep serving Bud Light, as it serves “every brand of beer.”

“I want it to be a place you feel safe in, I want it to be a place where you feel like there are manners and people like one another. And yes, we’re going to serve every brand of beer. We just are. It’s not our decision to make,” he said. “Our thing is this: If you [are let] into this house, love one another. If you’re an a–hole, there are plenty of other places on lower Broadway.”

Farr and Brooks can dismiss this scandal all they want to, but it’s not going to change the fact that Bud Light is hurting big time right now. It’s safe to say that Bud Light has learned the hard way that the phrase “go woke, go broke” is very real, and what happened to them should serve as a warning to brands everywhere that they should think twice about going woke.
