Trump Supporters Are Boycotting Budweiser Over Its Super Bowl Commercial

The 60-second ad follows a European immigrant as he travels from Germany to the United States.

Posted on February 4, 2017, at 10:27 p.m. ET

A few days ago, Budweiser released its Super Bowl LI commercial.

This is the story of our founder and his pursuit of the American Dream. #ThisBudsForYou

Set in the mid-1800's, the 60-second ad follows a European immigrant as he travels from Germany to the United States and finally settles in St. Louis.

The man arrives in America and is immediately met by a mob telling him to "go back home." Later, in a St. Louis bar, another man offers him a drink, before the slogan "When nothing stops your dream, this is the beer we drink," appears on screen.

Some are perceiving the commercial to be a thinly veiled swipe at President Donald Trump, whose first two weeks in office have focused heavily on an immigration ban.

Budweiser’s massive Trump subtweet. My goodness.

And Trump supporters are angry with the commercial's message.

@Stevenb2 @Budweiser New Slogan: This Bud's for you rapists of Europe.

Dear Budweiser, we are pro-immigration also but we want LEGAL immigration, NOT ILLEGAL! It really is that simple! #Immigration #MAGA

Budweiser sees no difference between white immigrant Adolphus Busch, and jihadis who would destroy America. I see t…


FYI Budweiser is a foreign owned company. It Belgian. No more Clydesdales & puppies. Now it's subtle lecturing about immigrants #BoycottBud

Others are praising the brewery for its message and applauding the commercial.

When I heard the alt right wants to Boycott Budweiser for the new ad I decided to go to the store! #Resistance

@Budweiser Your commercial is touching and powerful. Thank you for sharing. ❤

Now, Trump supporters are calling for a boycott of the beer.

Another reason to stick with Coors. #boycottbud

#boycottbud looks like no Budweiser for me.

@Budweiser See the red? U just pissed us off.We're a silent powerful force.We're also the beer drinkers.…

This isn't the first time Trump supporters have moved to boycott a company with a pro-immigration message.

In late January, Trump voters boycotted Starbucks after the coffee chain committed to hiring 10,000 refugees around the world.

Budweiser's corporate parent, Anheuser-Busch InBev, did not immediately return a BuzzFeed News request for comment.
