New Federal Complaint Alleges Anheuser-Busch Engaging In Racist Hiring Practices

The parent company of Bud Light is getting slapped around like a redheaded stepchild — I wonder how many people are going to try and cancel me for using that old phrase? The next question is if I care? I do not. — first by all of the folks who have opted to boycott the beer brand after it decided to partner with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney, and now by America First Legal in a new federal civil rights complaint that alleges Anheuser-Busch uses racist hiring practices under the guise of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

According to the Daily Wire, “The company has witnessed considerable backlash after executives partnered with self-identified transgender social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney. America First Legal, a conservative advocacy organization launched by former Trump administration senior adviser Stephen Miller, filed the complaint against Anheuser-Busch on Monday over workforce programs which the group says constitute a violation of civil rights laws.”

The parent company of Bud Light cooked up a leadership accelerator program they says provides “formal mentorship, executive interaction, and leadership development curriculum for those who identify with historically underrepresented groups as they join our organization in a full-time capacity.”  The company then encouraged folks who are “Black, Latinx, and Native American,” to apply, while omitting any sort of invitation to both white and Asian applicants.

the Daily Wire said, “According to America First Legal, Budweiser, another brand controlled by Anheuser-Busch, established an ‘unlawful race-based scholarship and internship program” with the United Negro College Fund to support 25 black students who are interested in the food sciences industry.”

The most recent annual report from the company also pointed out DEI initiatives, which included an effort to increase “overall representation of women in top leadership positions.” America First Legal referred to the efforts as discriminatory, noting that the “definition of a woman” held by Anheuser-Busch is most likely “not limited to biological females” due to the fact the company has a partnership with Mulvaney, who has supposedly been chronicling his transition from male to female on social media platform TikTok and has become extremely popular, landing a number of partnership deals with many large corporations.

“Iconic American brands, like Anheuser-Busch, have become shells of their founders’ visions due to weak-kneed corporate leadership who routinely cave to idealogues whose thirst for an ever-changing notion of ‘social justice’ is relentless,” America First Legal Vice President and General Counsel Gene Hamilton went on to say in a statement. “All racial discrimination is wrong, and race-based employment programs or opportunities are antithetical to the American ideal. Equality under the law will never be achieved in the United States if its largest corporations are permitted to engage in blatant discrimination against certain groups of citizens.”

Similar civil rights complaints have been filed against universities in recent years over programs that discriminate in accordance with race and sex. Mark Perry, an economics professor emeritus at the University of Michigan-Flint, has filed hundreds of federal Title IX and Title VI complaints in response to the academic programs, many of which have been successful,” The Daily Wire said.

Just last week, Brendan Whitworth, the CEO of Anheuser-Busch, put out a statement in responses to all of the controversy stirred up by Bud Light’s partnership with Mulvaney, though he did not mention the activist, transgenderism in general, nor did he offer an apology to the customers who were offended.

“We never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people,” the executive commented in the statement. “We are in the business of bringing people together over a beer.”

The report concluded by revealing that, “Anheuser-Busch also has a record of caving to pressure campaigns from the LGBTQ movement: activists hosted a demonstration two years ago in which they poured beverages distributed by Anheuser-Busch into a gutter to criticize donations the company made to lawmakers who sought to limit the spread of radical gender theory among young people. The firm now actively conducts outreach to LGBTQ consumers through marketing campaigns and other internal diversity efforts.”
