Billionaire Bill Gates has bought a whopping 1.7 million shares of Anheuser-Busch, the anti-American umbrella company of Bud Light.
Gates bought the Anheuser-Busch shares through his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust.
Gates’ shares have a market value of $95 million, according to TipRanks.
The Microsoft founder’s investments come as Anheuser-Busch is still dealing with the fallout from its disastrous partnership with transgender TikTok influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
Is this another reason never to drink Bud Light Again?
While Anheuser-Busch may be enjoying the influx of cash, the Bill Gates name being added to Bud Light, a brand that wants humans to consume its products, can’t be good.
As The Daily Mail noted, Gates invested $939.87 million in Heineken stock at the onset of the Bud Light controversy.
He acquired 10.8 million shares on February 17, according to the Netherlands Authority for Financial Markets filing.
And earlier than that, in 2007, Gates made a $392 million purchase of a stake in FEMSA – whose brewery was sold to Heineken in 2010.
In August, Anheuser-Busch laid off hundreds of US workers as it reported a $395 Million in its second quarter.
Anheuser-Busch has suffered declining sales since its ‘woke’ marketing disaster, and things will not recover.
Earlier this year, the two pro-trans marketing executives responsible for destroying the Bud Light brand were fired by Anheuser Busch.
“To my understanding, if we publicly announced the word ‘fire,’ it opens up the potential for them to sue us. That’s why we said leave of absence,” said the source in a text message to the Daily Caller.
“The wholesalers would have had an absolute HAY DAY with leadership if they didn’t remove her.” (Or maybe a field day?)
“To be fair- Daniel Blake was actually awesome. I think he was just caught in the crossfire. But also he did hire her… so thats a fault,” the source continued.
“Wholesalers were told they are both gone for good by leadership during in-person conversations. They already shifted all their direct reports to new people and the head of marketing,” they said.
