The National Football League may be in real trouble with this one as Anheuser-Busch is actually reconsidering their sponsorship spots to the football league as it’s even clear to them that the #TakeAKnee protests are quite unpopular among We The People.
With that, they’ve provided a hotline YOU CAN CALL to voice your opinion. So give’em a call and let them know WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS CRAP?
When a customer calls the number, they are greeted by a recorded voice who gives them the opportunity to voice their opinions about the protests.
“If you are calling with questions or comments about Anheuser-Busch’s sponsorship of the NFL, press one,” the voice says. “At Anheuser-Busch we have a long heritage of supporting the nation’s armed forces, veterans and military dependents. The national anthem is a point of pride for our company and for the 1,100 veterans that we employ. Please feel free to share your feedback after the tone.”
The company also released a statement:
These are complex issues that require in-depth discussions and nuanced debate. What I can say is that at Anheuser-Busch we have a long heritage of supporting the institutions and values that have made America so strong. That includes our armed forces and the national anthem as well as diversity, equality and freedom of speech. We proudly employ over 1,100 military veterans and we work every day to create an inclusive environment for all of our employees. Because only together can we achieve our dream of bringing people together for a better world.
So there you have it, folks. The NFL would be devastated if Budweiser actually dropped their asses. This is your chance, my chance (psh please, I already called!) to give them your two cents and let them know!
I, myself, have boycotted the NFL and various sponsors and they will not see a dime of my money until real change happens.
p.s. I miss the Budweiser frogs…
