( – Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Bud Light, is facing allegations of discriminatory employment and hiring practices by America First Legal, a conservative watchdog organization led by former Trump adviser Stephen Miller. According to the complaint, the company engaged in “systemic and discriminatory hiring, promotion, and job-training employment practices” that discriminate against white and Asian Americans. The complaint also cited Anheuser-Busch’s Leadership Accelerator Program, which allegedly invited only specific individuals of specified races, colors, and national origins to apply, excluding whites and Asians.

Additionally, Anheuser-Busch faced criticism in April 2023 after partnering with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, who received a customized Bud Light beer can with her face on it to celebrate her popular video series documenting her transition. America First Legal’s announcement mentions Bud Light’s partnership with Mulvaney and questions the company’s definition of “women.”

America First Legal is calling on the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to investigate Anheuser-Busch’s practices, arguing that race-based employment programs or opportunities are antithetical to the American ideal and that all racial discrimination is wrong. In a statement, Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth said the company never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people and pledged to continue working to bring great beers to consumers across the nation.
