Joe Rogan has expressed his views regarding the controversy surrounding Bud Light and Dylan Mulvaney.

The trans activist, who is 26 years old and has 10.8 million followers on TikTok, posted a video of herself drinking beer while dressed as Audrey Hepburn on Instagram on April 1.

The goal of the advertising partnership was to promote its March Madness tournament. Mulvaney also posted pictures of commemorative cans with her face on them that the company sent her to mark the “365 Days of Girlhood” milestone she just reached.

Users were very angry about the collaboration, and rock star Kid Rock even shot a rifle at the brand in a video he posted on Twitter.

On Wednesday’s episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, the controversial podcaster Joe Rogan seemed to end the drama about the beer brand by ignoring it.

The thing is like about this Dylan Mulvaney thing is like, it’s just someone who wants a lot of attention,

Rogan said.

You’re giving that someone a lot of attention, and you’re trying to reach another audience. I saw it and I was like ‘what the f*** is this?’ My initial reaction is like ‘this is silly.’

The New York Post says that Rogan and his guest, comedian Sam Tallent, each opened a can of Bud Light and joked about being “allies” as they proposed a toast.

Here’s my take,

Joe Rogan continued, per Newsweek.

What they’re doing is just spreading the brand to an extra group of people. Why, if something is good, do you give a f*** who’s got it?


I think it’s goofy. Because I think that person [Mulvaney] is goofy. But if you want to hire a goofy person, like, Who gives a s***?

Joe Rogan said.

But the podcaster “loved” watching Kid Rock shoot, and he said:

I laughed at it. I told him that I thought it was funny, but also it doesn’t make me mad. It just makes me like, what?

Joe Rogan then said that the drink companies were using Mulvaney to market their brands with Tallent. He added:

And they’re trying to look more inclusive because of the assumptions people make about Bud Light drinkers.


I think that it’s crazy when people get upset about that stuff because the people who get upset about this stuff value liberty and freedom so much and they want to live their lives undeterred by anyone’s rules,

he added.

Joe Rogan sips Bud Light amid Dylan Mulvaney Backlash

In an episode of the Onward With Rosie O’Donnell podcast from April 11, the content creator talked about some of the scrutinies she faces as a trans woman. She had surgery to make her face more feminine at the end of last year.

The reason that I think I am so…I’m an easy target is because I’m so new to this,

Mulvaney said.

I think going after a trans woman that’s been doing this for like 20 years is a lot more difficult. I think maybe they think that there’s some sort of chance with me…But what is their goal?

Mulvaney also said that hateful comments on social media don’t bother her, but that the backlash is a sign that things need to change.

I’m not worried about the people talking about me on their podcasts, I’m worried about their listeners,

she added.

And I also think that it’s just a heavy time. And it’s time to step up, for sure.
