Is Budweiser Promoting Rape?

April 29, 2015

Budweiser took their #upforwhatever campaign a step too far by releasing their new Bud Light bottle printed with a provocative slogan.

The bottle reads “the perfect beer for removing ‘no’ from your vocabulary for the night.” Many have complained that this encourages rape and promotes harassment because alcohol plays a big role in these crimes. The company swiftly issued an apology after a shit storm of twitter rage.



Though the slogan has been removed, their #upforwhatever campaign has pushed boundaries before. On St Patricks Day the beer brand decided to encourage pinching people with a picture of young girls.
