Feminist sermons don’t sell beer: Bud pulls ads with Amy Schumer yacking about equal pay

November 3, 2016

From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:

Schumer and Seth Rogen team up to hector viewers.

Huffington Post, June 28, 2016

“In a new Bud Light ad, which can be seen below, actors Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen talk about the gender pay gap — the very real, very stubborn fact that women make, on average, 79 percent of what men earn in the United States.

“’Women don’t get paid as much as men, and that is wrong,’ Rogen says.

“’And we have to pay more for the same stuff: cars, dry cleaning, shampoo,’ Schumer adds.”

Fox News, October 31, 2016:

“Anheuser-Busch InBev has pulled the plug on its Bud Light ads featuring comedians Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen.

“According to Adweek, the beer giant pulled the ads ‘a little earlier than expected’ after its beer sales declined in the third quarter.

“One of the advertisements dubbed ‘Equal Pay’ received a lot of negative attention online. In the video, the comedians denounced the gender wage gap by saying Bud Light “costs the same, whether you’re a dude or a lady.” Comments on the video have since been disabled on YouTube.

    With a bit of luck, Anheuser-Busch will tank alongside the NFL. Good riddance – and they can take their players in pink uniforms down with them.

    Also, I can’t believe how bad, how un-creative and un-funny that ad is. It’s a fiasco, even without the prog, anti-male message.

    I just did a bit of googling – seen this Bud Light spot promoting gay marriage? The article says “The ads were created by powerhouse creative ad agency Wieden + Kennedy”.

    How did this ad make it out of the focus groups?

    Misandrist ads tend to get a year long product boycott from me. Sucks that I already hate the NFL and Budweiser.

    ““’Women don’t get paid as much as men, and that is wrong,’ Rogen says.”

    Women certainly don’t get paid as much as men at the Clinton campaign headquarters. Sounds like another reason to vote against her.

    If that guy had balls instead of a mangina he would have set her straight on the equal pay BS.
    But then maybe he likes Amy and her strapon…..
