Kid Rock’s recent social media statement against Bud Light’s partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney caused a stir. However, a recent sighting suggests that the artist’s actions may be a little confusing.
Kid Rock Spotted Enjoying Bud Light…Or Is It?
TMZ has released a video capturing Kid Rock at a Nashville event, holding a can of Bud Light. The footage shows Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, attending a Colt Ford performance at Skydeck in Nashville. In the video, he can be seen holding a Bud Light can in his hand, taking occasional sips while watching the show. But after looking at it for a while, it’s really hard to tell what it is even though TMZ says “Kid Rock Drinks Bud Light Beer….” in their video title. Maybe it could be Pepsi? It’s still not completely clear.

A Twist in the Tale
Despite Kid Rock’s social media stance, the recent video shows him enjoying a Bud Light in real life. Bud Light’s parent company, Anheuser-Busch, clarified that the special can was a commemorative gift for Mulvaney and not for sale to the public. This twist adds another layer to the ongoing discussion about Kid Rock’s actions and his alignment with his public statements.
On April 6, John Rich turned to social media, asking his followers for beer suggestions to replace Bud Light at his Nashville bar, Redneck Riviera. This move indicated his intention to stop selling Bud Light as part of a conservative boycott.
Travis Tritt also shared his perspective. He announced that he would eliminate all Anheuser-Busch products from the backstage offerings during his tours. This decision was presented as a strong stand on the matter.
The country artist added his voice to the ongoing discussion, making his viewpoints clear in response to the Bud Light controversy:
