Vivek Ramaswamy, an entrepreneur and author who announced a presidential bid earlier this year, is capitalizing on the recent Bud Light controversy by selling “BUD RIGHT” koozies — the beer brand has been facing significant backlash for enlisting Dylan Mulvaney, a biological man who identifies as a transgender woman, to advertise the product.
“Get Bud Right: there are *two* genders. Men are men & women are women. Don’t apologize for the truth.
Ditch your next @budlight 24-pack. Donate the cost and get His & Her exclusive campaign koozies,” Ramaswamy tweeted.
In addition to bearing the words “BUD RIGHT,” the koozies also feature Ramaswamy’s likeness and the messages “TRUTH OVER RELATIVISM” and “COURAGE IS CONTAGIOUS.”
Nike recently earned the ire of many consumers by having Mulvaney promote a sports bra and leggings.
Ramaswamy has suggested that Mulvaney is in need of “mental health care.”
“One of the goals of my candidacy for president of the United States is to close the gap between what people are willing to say behind closed doors versus what they say in public. In that spirit: Dylan Mulvaney needs mental health care, not endorsement deals,” he tweeted.
Ramaswamy has also called for prohibiting puberty blockers and genital mutilation for minors.
“Ban genital mutilation & puberty blockers before age 18. Treat gender dysphoria as a mental health disorder. Ban addictive social media before age 16. Protect our children *now,* ” he tweeted. “A mom or dad trying to change the gender of their child is munchausen by proxy. It’s not compassion. It’s abuse. Most people agree with this but feel afraid to say it out loud,” he declared in another tweet.
Former President Donald Trump, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley are also vying for the GOP presidential nomination. Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) announced a presidential exploratory committee on Wednesday, a move that indicates that he may eventually jump into the fray as well.
