After being hired as Bud Light’s paid representative, transgender social media star Dylan Mulvaney has been the target of severe controversy. Mulvaney recently revealed on the “Dear Schuyler” podcast that the backlash has been preventing her from getting enough rest. Mulvaney has said that she is trying to show “grace” toward her detractors despite the criticism.
Many Americans were outraged by what they viewed as the beer company’s attempt to cater to a more liberal client base when it hired Mulvaney as a brand spokeswoman and put her likeness on a Bud Light can. Bud Light’s sales dropped by 26% in the week ending April 22 as a direct result of the boycott, costing the company billions of dollars.
Mulvaney, who has been the target of many customers’ venting, has responded to the backlash by looking for ways to show kindness to her detractors. While the criticism and attention have been difficult, Mulvaney has seen it as a chance to break out of her habit of trying to please everyone.
Mulvaney stressed the significance of preserving originality in addition to the inherent charm and humanity of their culture in a different section of the conversation. Mulvaney believes her message of the importance of celebrating one’s individuality will resonate most with today’s youth.
Mulvaney continues to advocate for tolerance and equality while receiving harsh criticism and pushback. Her strength and perseverance are an example to others who are going through tough times, and her dedication to grace is a potent reminder of the value of being gracious to others no matter what.
