Heir to the Anheuser-Busch fortune has spoken, and believes his family would be furious at the decision made to collaborate with a transgender social media influencer and activist.
Billy Busch believes the partnership with Dylan Mulvaney, a trans woman who has made herself famous with daily clips of “being a woman” has been so devastating to the family brand that he even wrote a book about it.
Talking to “TMZ Live” on Friday to discuss the new book, “Family Reins: The Extraordinary Rise and Epic Fall of an American Dynasty,” he was asked about the Bud Light ad featuring Dylan Mulvaney — the decision which led to a massive boycott and huge sale declines.

Busch believes the company that succeeded his family should never have put a transgender person on a Bud Light can, arguing beer drinkers “want their beer to be truly American,” adding, “I just don’t think the audience that drinks beer is into transgenders.”

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
