‘Superman’ Star Dean Cain Demolishes Dylan Mulvaney After Bud Light Debacle
A newly-surfaced screenshot is going viral this week in which the former “Superman” star Dean Cain completely schools the transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, who cost Bud Light hundreds of millions of dollars earlier this year.
Cain Goes After Mulvaney
Commenting on a video of Mulvaney and someone who appears to be another transgender person, Cain wrote, “I think…neither of you are girls.”
“And you were never Superman either,” another social media user responded.
“Correct. I pretended,” Cain replied.

Mulvaney’s Bud Light Debacle
Bud Light teamed up with Mulvaney for a partnership back in April. Since then, Bud Light’s parent company Anheuser-Busch InBev has lost nearly $40 billion in value after conservatives launched a highly affective boycott of the brand. The company reported a 10.5% drop in revenue and a nearly 30% plunge in core profit in the U.S. during the second quarter, according to The New York Post.
Bud Light sales are still down 30 percent, with one expert saying that drinkers are “just lost forever.”
“The Bud Light situation has actually gotten worse,” Beer Business Daily publisher Harry Schuhmacher told Fox News last month. “You see Bud Light still just stubbornly down around 30% in volume compared to last year, which is where it’s been since May or June. That tells me that this is quasi-permanent, meaning those consumers are just lost forever.”
“Bud Light’s latest week trends — down 26.9% in dollars and down 30.3% in volume — are nearly identical to its four-week trends,” he continued, going on to say that Bud Light is likely to see similar year-over-year declines for the “foreseeable future,” or “at least until April and May of 2024 when they lap the controversy.”
Despite this, Mulvaney, 26, is expecting other companies to heed to her demands when it comes to running their businesses in the future. While being interviewed at the 2023 Forbes CMO Summit, Mulvaney whined about how she feels that she took the brunt of the “hate and vitriol” after the Bud Light partnership, calling on companies to take relationships they have with progressive activists more seriously.
“If you’re going to ask us to capitalize on our vulnerabilities and our traumas, at least have our backs when the going gets tough,” Mulvaney declared, adding that companies must build a “connection between the partner and the brand.”
Cain Sounds Off
Meanwhile, Cain has long been one of the only openly conservative stars in Hollywood. Back in 2021, he spoke out to blast DC Comics after it was revealed that Superman’s son Jon Kent had come out as bisexual.
“I say they’re bandwagoning. … Robin, of Batman & Robin … just came out … as bi or gay recently. And honestly, who’s really shocked about that one?” Cain said at the time, according to Christian Post. “The new Captain America is gay. My daughter in ‘Supergirl’ where I played … the father, she was gay. … So I don’t think it’s bold or brave or some crazy new direction. If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would have been bold and brave.”
“Brave would be having him … fighting for the rights of gay people in Iran, where they’ll throw you off a building for the offense of being gay,” he added. “They’re talking about him fighting … real-world problems like climate change, the deportation of refugees and … he’ll be dating a ‘hacktivist,’ whatever a ‘hacktivist’ is. Why don’t they have him fight the injustices that created the refugees … whose deportation he’s protesting? That would be brave.”
It’s rare to find anyone who is brave enough to defy the liberal world of Hollywood in the way that Cain does, so we applaud him for having the guts to do it.
