Former Anheuser-Busch executive Anson Frericks (sic- LFL) said the company's current CEO has failed to fix the Bud Light crisis and must quit now for the sake of Americans' 401(k)s.

"It's clear to me that it's time for the shareholders and board of Anheuser-Busch to ask Brendan Whitworth to step down," Frericks said in a Daily Mail column hours after transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney said she felt abandoned by Bud Light after facing "more bullying and transphobia than I could have ever imagined" over her partnership with the beer giant.

"Now, to be clear: I worked with Whitworth for many years at Anheuser-Busch. ... So I write this with a heavy heart, not out of spite but because it's important for Americans to understand how and why corporate leaders can bungle the management of once-iconic American brands so badly, sacrificing countless jobs and invested assets in the process.

"More importantly, I write because those leaders must be seen to take responsibility when things go so badly wrong,(bold text mine- LFL)" he added.

In a recent video Mulvaney said (it-LFL), "was waiting for the brand to reach out to me. But they never did." (It) said (it) should have spoken out sooner but was afraid and hoped things would get better — but claims they did not.

"For months now, I've been scared to leave my house," Mulvaney said. "I have been ridiculed in public. I've been followed, and I have felt a loneliness that I wouldn't wish on anyone."

A deluge of criticism erupted soon after Mulvaney cracked open a Bud Light in an Instagram video on April 1 as part of a promotional contest for the beer brand. (It) showed off a can emblazoned with (its) face that Bud Light sent to (it) — one of many corporate freebies (it) gets and shares with (its) millions of followers.

Anheuser-Busch didn't directly respond to Mulvaney in a statement the company released Friday. But a spokesperson said the company remains, "committed to the programs and partnerships we have forged over decades with organizations across a number of communities, including those in the LGBTQ+ community."

Frericks called that response a cop-out and said changes need to be made to protect investments of hardworking Americans.

"The real shareholders are the firefighters, police officers, and doctors, whose life savings — held in pensions and 401(k)s — are managed by these monster firms," he said. - END ARTICLE

I noticed the AP writers of the article spitefully used the personal pronoun "she"  about Mulvaney a ridiculous NINE times in a four-sentence section of the text (sticking a finger in the eye of people who are sickened by such stupidity). I chose to change that to "it" in each case to spare all of those who read the feelings of disgust the AP writers were trying to invoke (being largely and increasingly sadistic, malicious Satanists).
