Anheuser-Busch is still feeling the pain from its partnership with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney and, as a result, two leading marketing executives lost their jobs.
A company insider told the Daily Caller that Group Vice President for Marketing Daniel Blake and Bud Light Marketing Vice President Alissa Heinerscheid are no longer working at the beer giant. Both were placed on leave earlier this year following the public backlash and boycott over the Mulvaney partnership.
But the source, who is reportedly a regional marketing executive, said the two are gone for good. The source told the Caller, “to my understanding if we publicly announced the word ‘fire’ it opens up the potential for them to sue us. That’s why we said leave of absence.”
It was also revealed that Bud Light has lost several high-profile wholesalers as a result of the boycott. The news comes after Bud Light lost its status as America’s best-selling beer earlier this month.
