Billy Busch, the heir to the Anheuser-Busch fortune, isn’t involved with running the company anymore. But he might want to be, as he sees that wokeness is destroying the company and brands his ancestors built and is considering trying to take it back to fix it.
He spoke about that during an interview with TPUSA personality Benny Johnson, saying that he is considering trying to buy back Bud Light as AB InBev sheds brands to help turn it around and get it out of the insane hands of those who ruined it with far-left nonsense.
The issue came up at the end of the interview, when Benny asked, “Final question for you, sir. As we put the book back up this, the family reigns the cover. It’s beautiful. The imagery is beautiful the Clydesdales out front. This is your Is this your father on the front? Yes it is. All right. Is there any chance that you get this company back? Can I help you buy some shares?”
Replying, Mr. Busch said, “Oh, you know what…I know Anheuser Busch InBev just sold off eight different brands. And if they ever decide to sell the Bud Light brand, they can sell it to me. I sure as heck try to pull some people together and buy that brand. Because I think we can make Bud Light great again.”
Benny, replying, said that he hoped it would work out, even if it might not be the best business decision, saying, “Yes, yes. God. Yes. God bless you. I mean, truly, why put things that are obviously divisive inside of your marketing? I mean, again, I would love this if you put Donald Trump in a MAGA hat on a can, I think that’d be great. But I can even I can empirically say that would be a probably not a great business decision because you, you’re gonna piss off people, right? So if you want to get me a Donald Trump MAGA hat can please, I’ll give you my address. I love it. But, But sincerely, like we hope the best for you and your family. We hope that these people come to their senses and give you back this great American company. Godspeed.”

This isn’t Mr. Busch’s first time speaking on the topic of what has happened to what used to be his family’s pro-American company. He also did so during an interview with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity, saying that the Mulvaney disaster and the general anti-American wokeness at the company has his ancestry spinning in their graves.
“They are paying the price, and I think that the company greatly miscalculated what they thought was being inclusive, but it really was divisive. I think my family was, they lived by the motto, ‘Making friends is our business,’ and they believed that bringing people together, making it a sociable, fun, beer-drinking experience, was the way to go,” he told Hannity.
Continuing, he added that the whole thing was a mistake that should have been obvious, saying, “But … people that drink Bud Light, that drink beer really don’t relate to that kind of advertising, and so it was a huge mistake.“
