Country Music Star Zach Bryan Calls Out Transphobia

It’s after some musicians freaked out because Bud Light featured a transgender influencer in its marketing campaign.

Country music star Zach Bryan showed solidarity with the transgender community by publicly criticizing his fellow musicians for their intolerance of transgender people.

Conservatives and influencers on the right, including some artists, became upset last week when Dylan Mulvaney posted a video of her brand partnership with Bud Light. As part of the promotion, the company pressed a unique can design with the trans influencer’s face.

Outraged, some on the right called for boycotts and other measures against the beer company.

“I mean no disrespect towards anyone specifically, I don’t even mind @Travistritt. I just think insulting transgender people is completely wrong because we live in a country where we can all just be who we want to be It’s a great day to be alive, I thought,” Bryan wrote on Twitter early Friday morning.

As of this writing, the tweet has been viewed more than 3.3 million times.

In the last sentence of his remarks, he referred to Travis Tritt’s 2000 single, “It’s a Great Day to Be Alive,” People reports.

Singer Jason Isbell, who isn’t shy about supporting the LGBTQ+ community, took notice of Ryan’s tweet and celebrated his support.

“There you go Zach cheers,” Isbell wrote.

As part of an announcement on his Twitter account, Tritt, 60, said he would delete Anheuser-Busch products from his hospitality list due to Bud Light’s latest advertisement featuring Mulvaney.

Kid Rock initiated the right-wing push to cancel the beer maker over its inclusive messaging with a tweet that included a video of him shooting an assault rifle at a stack of beer cases.

Rock caused quite a stir with his over-the-top violent reaction to a transgender person’s inclusion in a marketing campaign.

“I wish I could call Kid Rock and have him come on the show and just tell me, ‘Why are you so upset about this? How is it hurtful?’” Howard Stern lamented on his Monday Sirius/XM program.

“I don’t know why he got so upset,” Stern added.
