Transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney said recently he wants to be in a beer ad for a future Super Bowl game.
In an interview with The Cut, Mulvaney, a biological male, revealed his aspirations to be in a Super Bowl commercial one day.
“Maybe it’d be epic,” he said. “If in like 10 years I got to do a beer commercial for a Super Bowl.”
Mulvaney, who started the series “365 Days of Girlhood” on his TikTok page, opened up about the controversy surrounding his identity.
“I don’t like taking myself too seriously. I want to be the funny one. I don’t want to be the one that’s scared, the one who’s controversial — that word, controversial, drives me f**king insane. What really makes me controversial? That I’m trans? That I’m hyperfeminine? That I make jokes? That I overshare? Because I actually like being myself or that, God forbid, I’m happy? Maybe that’s what makes me controversial. I don’t think I’ve actually f**ked up majorly. I think that the world is f**ked up. Cheers to that.”
“For a company to hire a trans person and then not publicly stand by them is worse, in my opinion, than not hiring a trans person at all because it gives customers permission to be as transphobic and hateful as they want,” he said.

“We recognize that over the last two months, the discussion surrounding our company and Bud Light has moved away from beer, and this has impacted our consumers, our business partners, and our employees,” he wrote.
In the release, Whitworth emphasized “beer is for everyone” and also shared the company’s plan of action going forward.
“First, we are investing to protect the jobs of our frontline employees. Second, we are providing financial assistance to our independent wholesalers to help them support their employees,” he assured.
Whitworth continued, “Third, to all our valued consumers, we hear you. Our summer advertising launches next week, and you can look forward to Bud Light reinforcing what you’ve always loved about our brand – that it’s easy to drink and easy to enjoy.”
