Joe Rogan has slammed transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney as ‘mentally ill’ and an ‘attention w****’ on a new podcast episode after she claimed Bud Light abandoned her after their disastrous partnership.
In a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan criticized comments Mulvaney made when she broke her silence over her involvement with the beer brand last week.
Mulvaney said she felt abandoned by the beer company after facing ‘more bullying and transphobia than I could have ever imagined’ over her partnership with the brewing giant.
Such criticism continued with Rogan as he described her as being ‘mentally ill’ and an ‘attention seeker’ on his show on Monday.
‘The only time [capital] respects opinions is when people boycott s*** and it works like this Bud Light thing, and now people are like, ‘Don’t do that again,” Rogan said.
During a conversation with rapper-actor Ice Cube, Rogan questioned the decision-making process behind Bud Light’s partnership with Mulvaney and expressed concerns about the brand’s reputation and iconic status.
Rogan attributed Bud Light’s actions to pressure being placed on corporations to adopt environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards, suggesting that the company was out of touch with regular consumers.
‘Take a brand like Bud Light. It’s for blue-collar drinking people and they like to watch football and drink Bud Light and then all of a sudden you have this mentally ill person who’s just an attention w****,’ Rogan said.
