Kid Rock is changing his tune on Bud Light.
In April, Rock was one of several conservative figures to denounce the beverage, after Bud Light sent a personalized case of beer to transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
The rocker even filmed himself shooting a crate of Bud Light and uploaded the footage to X.
During a new interview, Rock declared he “didn’t want to be in the party of cancel cultures and boycotts that ultimately hurt working-class people.”
Describing himself as a “conservative” and a “patriot,” the musician said he’d given the issue a lot of thought since calling for Bud Light’s cancellation earlier this year.
He explained, “As a God-fearing man, as a Christian, I have to believe in forgiveness. They made a mistake, all right. What do you want, hold their head under water and drown them and kill people’s jobs? I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to be their biggest cheerleader. I want them to show me something to get me back as a consumer, as a drinker.”
