Rock star Ted Nugent spoke out over Bud Light’s recent partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, referring to it as “cultural deprivation.”

“How can they possibly have a meeting around the table and come to the conclusion that they’re going to piss in the face of the people who pay their salaries?” Nugent said during an interview on Newsmax, also including Jack Daniels’ “Jack Fire Pride” ad in the discussion.

“This is the epitome of cultural deprivation in an ongoing tsunami of cultural deprivation,” he added.

Mulvaney, a man who identifies as a woman, recently launched a promotion with Bud Light to more than 10 million followers on social media. The campaign sparked a boycott of Anheuser-Busch.

Other musical artists to criticize the Mulvaney partnership include rock artist Kid Rock and country music star Travis Tritt.

Kid Rock made headlines over a viral video in which he shot at a case of Bud Light with a rifle. The video has garnered over 52 million views and has been retweeted over 45,000 times.

“Let me say something to all of you and be as clear and concise as possible,” he said in the video. “F-ck Bud Light, and f-ck Anheuser-Busch.”

Tritt chose to announce “deleting” Anheuser-Busch products from his tour.

“I will be deleting all Anheuser-Busch products from my tour hospitality rider. I know many other artists who are doing the same,” Tritt tweeted April 5.

“Other artists who are deleting Anheuser-Busch products from their hospitality rider might not say so in public for fear of being ridiculed and cancelled. I have no such fear,” he said in another update.

Not everyone has been on board with the criticism of the Bud Light-Mulvaney partnership. Fellow country music artist Zach Bryan took a different approach.

“I mean no disrespect towards anyone specifically, I don’t even mind @Travistritt,” Bryan wrote on Twitter. “I just think insulting transgender people is completely wrong because we live in a country where we can all just be who we want to be. It’s a great day to be alive I thought.”

Donald Trump Jr. also spoke out on social media against boycotting Bud Light in a surprising response, calling for the opposition to end. The son of former President Donald Trump argued that Anheuser-Busch has been a stronger supporter of Republicans than Democratic candidates.
