With Super Bowl LI today, so begins the barrage of some good and some not-so-good TV commercials. But, in this new Trump-era political climate, some of his supporters are already taking a stance against one of this year’s Super Bowl spots. The one in question is from the “King of Beers” itself, Budweiser.
The commercial highlights the process in which its founder Adolphus Busch made his journey to the United States and eventually landed in St. Louis where he established what is known today as Anheuser-Busch. According to Business Insider, with the current immigration ban in place, Trump supporters are taking this as a shot against the president’s policies.
The commercial wasn’t planned as a political statement, but unfortunately it’s being seen that way by some that are threatening to boycott the beer.
We’ll see how it pans out for them.
