January 1, Bud Light Under Fire for Sponsoring Pride Parade Featuring Naked Men Near Children



  • Bud Light continues to spark controversy by sponsoring the Toronto Pride parade, where video footage reveals fully naked men openly interacting in crowds, including families with children.
  • Despite past backlash resulting in billions lost in market value due to the company’s association with trans activist Dylan Mulvaney, Bud Light remains committed to supporting events like Pride Toronto and “Pride in the Pines” in Arizona.
  • Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth emphasizes that the company’s intent is to unite people and uphold American values, but the beer brand’s continued involvement in divisive events is causing further alienation among certain consumers.

Bud Light, a well-known beer brand, finds itself once again in the crosshairs of controversy as it sponsors the Toronto Pride parade, where video footage shows fully naked men openly interacting within crowds that include families with children.

The footage was captured by Beth Baisch of the Post Millennial and has caused a significant stir online.

The videos display a range of scenes, from naked cyclists interacting with onlookers to a group of naked men congregating amidst the crowd.

In one particular instance, a young girl in a stroller is seen staring at a person in an explicit costume.

Meanwhile, in another part of the parade, a stage bearing Bud Light’s branding showcased scantily clad dancers in provocative outfits.

This year’s sponsorship isn’t a first for Bud Light, though.

The company’s website reveals that they have been in partnership with Pride Toronto for the last decade.

To mark the milestone, the beer brand has incorporated the Pride event into its can design and maintained its role as the official beer sponsor.

Bud Light Canada also annually contributes $100,000 to organizations across Canada that support the LGBTQUA2S+ community.

However, Bud Light’s corporate stance hasn’t been without consequences. The beer company has previously faced consumer backlash, most notably after partnering with trans activist Dylan Mulvaney.

The fallout from this decision led to a significant drop in sales, resulting in a loss of billions in market value.

Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth tried to manage the situation with a statement explaining the company’s intention to bring people together, highlighting the values of freedom, hard work, and mutual respect.

He stressed that as CEO, his focus is on “building and protecting our remarkable history and heritage.”

Yet, the beer company’s insistence on co-sponsoring controversial events continues to draw ire. Just last month, Bud Light was listed as a sponsor for an “all-ages Pride event” in Flagstaff, Arizona, called “Pride in the Pines”.

Featuring drag queens and other performers, the event was labeled as a “family-friendly, safe space” for all visitors, a label which many believe to be inappropriate given the nature of the performances.

Bottom Line

Bud Light’s decision to sponsor a Pride Parade that saw naked men parading near children has ignited a wave of backlash.

This incident, which stands as a stark reminder of the profound clash between corporate sponsorship decisions and public sentiment, has further strained the brand’s already damaged reputation following its partnership with trans activist Dylan Mulvaney.

The public’s reaction underscores a critical demand for more prudent measures to ensure age-appropriate content at public events.

It’s a potent illustration of how corporate choices can have far-reaching implications, not just for brand image, but also for the broader societal discourse on the nature and norms of public events.

    Parents of these children who are subjected to these scenes are as totally responsible as the mentally ill people who are putting on these disgusting exhibitions. Parents, I hope that in a few years down the road when you need help from your children because of age, medical problems, etc and they are too mentally self involved in their own, now, mental problems you remember what have done.

    Why would parents take any of their children to a “Gay” parade. Would these same parents allow thei children to view pornography or a subscription to Playboy or Hustler? The whole LGBTQUA2S be viewed as a sickness and nor something to celebrate.
