The hashtag #BoycottBudweiser trended earlier in the evening over an ad showing the label’s co-founder immigrating to America from Germany in the 1800s, which the company said was not a political statement. The hashtag was apparently started by people who disliked the ad, but then used by others to defend Budweiser and mock boycotters.

Budweiser left out the fact their founder came here LEGALLY.
