Is Costco Joining the Bud Light Boycott?

How much worse can things get for Tranheuser-Busch? Well, even CNN is "misgendering" -- that's Newspeak for "correctly gendering" -- Tranheuser-Busch's celebrity pitchman Dylan Mulvaney.

CNN, a network plagued in recent years by its left-leaning bent, is under fire for misgendering transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney during a segment about the 'culture war' being waged against Bud Light.

Network correspondent Ryan Young failed to use she/her pronouns when speaking about Mulvaney during a short segment about the beer company's declining sales number.

He also called the controversial influencer 'Dylvan.'

'He, of course, is the transgender person they were going to sponsor and go along with, with Bud Light,' he said, using 'he' instead of 'she.'

'But [trans activists] didn't like how Bud Light didn't stand by him after all this,' Young continued, repeating the offense.

Young did not correct himself, nor was he corrected by segment host Kate Bolduan, to whom he was speaking.

Ari Drennen of Media Matters posted footage of the exchange, calling it an 'unbelievably bad CNN segment.'

Craig Harrington, the progressive media watchdog's director of research wrote: 'God damn, that sucked.'

'What horrible coverage and the pundit couldn't even correct the misgendering of Dylan. This makes me sad,' wrote one user.

But CNN apologized for this rare case of getting the facts right.

On Wednesday, CNN issued an apology at the close of 'News Central,' the program where the misgendering had occurred.

Bolduan said that Mulvaney was 'mistakenly referred to by the wrong pronoun, and CNN aims to honor individuals' ways of identifying themselves and we apologize for that error.'

Here's ugly Kate Bolduan apologizing with all the solemnity of announcing the loss of a ship.

Speculation abounds that Costco will stop stocking Bud Light.

The evidence? Apparently when Costco puts something on sale, and marks the sale notice with an asterisk, that means either that they will no longer be stocking that item -- in other words, it's a clearance sale -- or that it's a seasonal offering which may be stocked sometime in the future, but will not be stocked after current inventory is sold out.

Savvy shoppers at Costco are convinced Bud Light will soon be off the shelves after they spotted the 'star of death' asterisk on the product and a price drop.

Photos and videos shared on social media show the beer's price tag stamped with a small asterisk at the top right-hand corner - a symbol that many Costco regulars claim is used to signal that a product will no longer be restocked once it is sold out.

One Twitter user posted a photo of the dwindling stack being sold for $14.97 for a 2 x 12 pack, which they exclaimed that Costco was 'practically giving away Bud Light.'


's not clear which Costco locations across the county may not be restocking the product.

Some social media users pointed out that the retailer might only not restock 16oz cans but continue selling 36 packs of the 12oz cans.

However, the asterisk was also spotted on a price tag for $24.99 cases of 36 pack 12oz cans of Bud Light.

The 'death star' symbol is well known in the online community, with many TikTok and Instagram videos revealing the secret.

But one customer and Quora user Dimitri Vulis noted that it doesn't always mean the item is gone forever and that the products marked with the star could be seasonal offerings that are usually brought back. But then in many situations, Costco is just getting rid of it altogether.

There's a map that supposedly shows Bud and Bud Light's complete collapse. But there's a big Asterisk of Death on this story.

This map from April 2023 showed each state's favorite beer. As you can see, Budweiser and Bud Light are the top beer in many states.

Here's the new map. Not a single state has Bud or Bud Light as its top seller.

Via Outkick.

The Asterisk of Death is that this second map isn't based on published sales figures but just upon a search for Twitter posts mentioning Bud and Bud Light, which are geotagged for particular states. So it's not showing sales, but mere Twitter mentions.

Still, it does suggest that people at least don't want to be identified as Bud drinkers.

Meanwhile, the "Ultra Right Beer Company" released another commercial. They announced the start of this business -- which is a legitimate beer company -- after the Dylan Mulvaney fiasco.

AI generated beer commercial. It's a nightmare.

It's perfect for Bud Light.
