Anheuser-Busch, the makers of Bud Light, recently made an announcement that they are suing Elon Musk for defamation. The company is reportedly seeking $100 billion in damages from the billionaire entrepreneur.
The lawsuit was filed in response to Elon Musk’s comments on Twitter about the new “trans” can of Bud Light, which features a transgender pride flag.
Elon Musk criticized the new cans, saying that they were “trying too hard to be politically correct” and that they were “virtue signals at best”.
Anheuser-Busch responded to Musk’s comments, expressing disappointment and standing by its decision to manufacture the new cans. However, the company has decided to take legal action against Elon Musk.
In a press statement, Anheuser-Busch accused Elon Musk of deliberately spreading lies about their product in an attempt to damage their reputation.
The company also claimed that Elon Musk’s comments caused them substantial financial losses, as sales of Bud Light fell dramatically due to his comments.
The statement emphasized the company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion and criticized Musk’s baseless and derogatory comments for hurting its brand and the transgender community.
Anheuser-Busch revealed that they had hired a team of top lawyers to pursue the case against Musk and were confident that justice would be served.
The decision to sue Elon Musk has been met with criticism, with some arguing that it is an overreaction to his comments. Others have expressed concern that the lawsuit could potentially damage Anheuser-Busch’s reputation more than Musk’s comments.
The outcome of the lawsuit remains to be seen, but it is clear that the dispute between Anheuser-Busch and Elon Musk is far from over.
