Kid Rock retaliates against Megyn Kelly following her criticism of him for ending the Bud Light boycott.

Kid Rock Ends Bud Light Boycott After Company’s Partnership With Transgender Influencer

Kid Rock recently announced that he is dropping his boycott of Bud Light that he launched after the brand teamed up with the transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney for a partnership back in April. He is now firing back at the former Fox News host Megyn Kelly after she slammed him for ditching this boycott.

The artist’s decision to walk back his previous stance on the popular beer company had created quite a stir. Bud Light was the target of Kid Rock’s ire when it forged a partnership with Dylan Mulvaney, a transgender influencer, in April. Rock had openly expressed his rejection of the brand in view of this partnership. However, Bud was willing to pay him off and not issue an apology; Megyn Kelly criticized him for this U-turn.

Megyn Kelly Criticizes Kid Rock for Ending the Boycott

During an appearance on Newsmax, Kid Rock was asked about comments made by Kelly, who recently blasted him for ending his Bud Light boycott.

“This is like the only successful boycott that Republicans have ever engaged in,” Kelly said on her SiriusXM show. “It’s the only time they’ve stuck together and actually been heard. And because Kid Rock and Dana White want to give it up, we’re supposed to all surrender our principles now.”

“And I like Kid Rock. I actually do. I like the guy, but he’s wrong. He can do what he wants. If he wants to drink a Bud Light, he can. He does not speak for the rest of us!” she continued. “Many of us are still deeply offended by that brand’s partnership with the person who makes his living mocking women, Dylan Mulvaney. Not to mention what they said about their core audience and customer base, which is that they’ve ‘gotten too fratty and they want to get away from them.’ Who at Bud Light thinks that we do what Kid Rock tells us to?”

Kid Rock Responds to Megyn Kelly’s Comments

When asked about her remarks, Kid Rock was quick to fire back at her.

“Well, first of all, first off, I love Megyn,” he began. “We’ve been friends for a long time, but she’s got this one wrong. Saying me and Dana don’t speak for conservatives, neither one of us ever said we did. You know, I explained myself before on another program about Bud Light.”

“I’m pretty sure they got the message,” he added. “Do I agree with what they did? F no! And we held their head under water for quite some time and we hurt them. But, you know, I’m not someone to keep punching somebody when they’re down, when there’s a whole lot more companies deserving of this treatment.”

“And, you know, and Dana has told me specifically as a very good friend of mine about, you know, the things they’ve done through the years with Folds of Honor,” Kid Rock continued. “So has Lieutenant Colonel Dan Rooney, for that matter, and countless other things. And I’m like, I get it. They made a mistake. All right. I don’t need to kill them.”

This comes weeks after Kid Rock announced that he is ending his Bud Light boycott.

“At the end of the day, when you step back and look at it, like, yeah, they deserved a black eye and they got one. They made a mistake,” Kid Rock told Tucker Carlson earlier this month. “So, do I want to hold their head under water and drown them because they made a mistake? No, I think they got the message.”

“Hopefully, other companies get it too but, at the end of the day, I don’t think the punishment that they’ve been getting at this point fits the crime,” he added. “I would like to see us back on board and become bigger because that’s the America that I want to live in.”
