Budweiser Just Told Customers What They are Going To Do In Response To ‘Kneelers’, NFL Commissioner PISSED

Anheuser-Busch is rethinking their NFL sponsorship, and they want your input.

What’s happening?

In the wake of increased national anthem protests by NFL players, Anheuser-Busch is reconsidering their NFL sponsorship, likely because the protests are very unpopular among everyday Americans. Bud Light currently serves as the official beer of the NFL.

So the company set up a hotline for fans to call and give their thoughts about the protests and Anheuser-Busch’s sponsorship of the NFL. The number for the hotline is: 1-800-342-5283.

What does the hotline say?
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.
Have people been calling?

Since the company established the hotline and began to promote it, they have been inundated with calls. According to KTVI-TV, the hotline went down Friday afternoon after receiving too many calls.

As of Sunday afternoon, the hotline is back up.

  1. In 66 years on this planet, I have spent a great amount of time watching the NFL. Those day are over. I am not sure if I will ever start again Our children can not longer look up to this group as a whole and their patriotism…………..non-existent. My and my families next step will be their sponsors. We might not nock a dent in any major conglomerates bottom line but, we will feel good about ourselves and our beliefs in what this country is about.

    • Amen. The dollar amt of our purchases willnot be felt; but if everyone who shares our opinion will join in, perhaps sponsors will take note. I was so disappointed thar my favorite team – the Patriots- joined in this nonaense.

      • I strongly support everyone’s freedom to let his/her voice be heard. I only wish they would do so without disrespecting the nation that gives them that freedom. My allegience to this nation far outweighs that to the NFL.

  2. I have been watching the NFL since I was 12 over 45 years. No more will I watch grown pampered men making millions kneeling to a country that has gave them more than they deserve. They’re corrupting the minds of young players as well. NFL is dead to me and my family. Sure hate it because Matt Ryan is a stand up guy!

  3. I am a veteran, my son is a veteran and my dad is a veteran, and also my husband. We were always avid football fans, but not anymore. I don’t care what they are protesting which they have every right to do. I just think it’s a slap in the face of every veteran in America who served and went to war. I don’t give a shit what they think, this is and always will be the United States of America, I think everyone who wants to disrespect us should have to serve at least one enlistment, then they would understand. BOYCOTT the NFL and that piece of shit goodell.

  4. Start putting Veterans on your cans. I’m not a drinker but I think you would have enough Veterans.Im sure sales would go up

  5. Have boycotted the nfl since they let kapernic get away with taking a knee! This is disrespect for country and those who have given their lives for our freedom, no matter what kinda spin they wanna put on it or what they are protesting about this week.Can hardly believe NO ONE in the nfl was smart enough to stop this!Did we do away with right and wrong?My vote to pull the sponsorship.Then and only then will they understand right from wrong!

  6. If your priorities were truly representative of our country and the veterans you would have pulled all affiliations with the NFL day one. Instead you are playing the game of taking comments so you can ride the fence and continue to prosper from their disgusting behavior.

  7. I damn near lost my son who was in service. I will be damned if I will buy anything from anyone supporting the disgraceful behaviors of the NFL.

  8. I love bud light but if you continue to support the nfl i will find another beer not made by you . I love you super bowl commercials but i wont watch them anymore.the best commercial you have is the horses knelling at the site of the twin towers. Please pull your sponsoring of the nfl

  9. These NFL players are showing a complete disrespect for our country and I don’t think they understand who is paying their salaries. In a world of turmoil I think we should be United and stand together not apart. I think Budweiser should put all their advertising for the NFL as Bud Light is my drink of choice

  10. Such a disgrace that you sponsor these scumbags,never will I or anyone in my family watch these overpaid assholes play again!!!! Quit sponsoring the NFL 😡

  11. I think they should pull away from NFL, i would be so proud to watch the NFL go under from all these desresptful, thugs that make to much money, come to find out they are donating money to blem and Antigua. I hope they all end up bankrupt. Sick and tired of all this bullshit.
