After promoting a sponsorship deal with Bud Light, trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney received shocking public bullying and transphobic abuse for months, which she now reveals in a heartbreaking video had a huge impact on her mental health. To make matters worse, she reveals that Bud Light never reached out to make sure she was ok.
In a viral TikTok video that has taken social media by storm, popular influencer Dylan Mulvaney shares her harrowing experience after participating in an ad campaign for Bud Light.
Little did she know that her innocent Instagram video of enjoying a Bud Light would unleash a storm of transphobia and threats.
The Infamous Bud Light Boycott
Conservatives and anti-trans campaigners quickly launched a boycott of Bud Light, while some individuals resorted to vandalizing the brand’s products in stores.
The Cry for Help
With over 1.5 million likes and 8 million views, Mulvaney’s TikTok video resonated deeply with viewers worldwide.
Shocking Revelation Sparks Concern
In the emotionally charged clip, she addresses the lack of support from Bud Light, stating, “I was waiting for the brand to reach out to me but they never did. And for months now, I’ve been scared to leave my house. I have been ridiculed in public. I’ve been followed. And I have felt a loneliness I wouldn’t wish on anyone.”
Revealing that Bud Light failed to extend support to Mulvaney left many viewers appalled by the company.
Stand By Me!
“For a company to hire a trans person and then not publicly stand by them is worse, in my opinion, than not hiring a trans person at all,” Mulvaney argues.
Hateful Impact on LGBTQ Community
This silence from Bud Light allows customers to express their transphobic and hateful views without consequence.
A Plea for Solidarity
In a heartfelt plea for support and unity, Mulvaney calls upon her followers to stand alongside all transgender individuals, “If you follow me, if I’ve made you smile, if you care about me, I need you to care about every trans person and I need you to support us and I need you to stand by us.”
Finding Strength and Pride
Despite all the backlash, Mulvaney proudly affirms, “I can look in the mirror and see the woman that I am and that I love being.”
TikTok Shows Immense Support
The comments were flooded with support for Mulvaney and the trans community at this tough time, “I’m SO sorry they did not stand by you 🥺. That’s awful & none of this is your fault. Keep your head up babe.”
You’re a Beautiful Soul
“You didn’t deserve any of this, you’re a beautiful soul. Stay true.” Another user added.
