Joe Rogan, Howard Stern Defend Dylan Mulvaney’s Bud Light Deal

Podcast superstar, fading radio giant puzzled over reaction to beer campaign

Fans rally behind Joe Rogan for many reasons, but one may matter most of all

The Spotify podcaster isn’t beholden to the Left … or the Right.

He’s a free speech advocate who occasionally rails against conservatives. The comic shreds President Joe Biden for his obvious mental decline but might vote for him if Donald Trump is the alternative.

The Left labels Rogan a “far-Right” figure for defending free speech, but the reality is more nuanced.

So when the subject of trans TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney came up on his show, Rogan did the unexpected. He shrugged at the controversy over Mulvaney’s recent Bud Light deal.

That’s a far cry from Kid Rock’s reaction. The conservative singer shot up Bud Light cans to protest the endorsement deal, one that set the beer’s parent company back a pretty penny.

Or $5 billion in value, to be precise.

“What they’re doing is just spreading the brand to an extra group of people. Why, if something is good, do you give a f*** who’s got it?” Rogan said during his Tuesday podcast.

“The thing is about this Dylan Mulvaney thing is like, it’s just someone who wants a lot of attention and you’ve given someone a lot of attention and you’re trying to reach someone from another audience,” Rogan said.

“I saw it and was like ‘what the f*** is this?’ was my initial reaction.

“It’s like this is silly.”

The New York Post highlighted several Rogan fans blasting the comedian on Twitter, but it’s unclear if the comments had any real impact on his base or download numbers.

What’s more surprising is how Rogan and former free speech hero Howard Stern agreed on the matter.

Stern, an MSNBC devotee who preaches against all things GOP, freedom and medical autonomy, sided with Mulvaney’s corporate deal earlier this week.

The 69-year-old couldn’t believe Kid Rock and country superstar Travis Tritt raged against the deal.

“I thought there must be a piece of the story that I’m missing,” Stern said.

“I’m not bothered by gay people or transsexual people. They don’t impact my life, they don’t hurt my life. I love when people are in love. You wanna be a woman? Be a woman. You wanna be a dude, be a dude. Be whatever you f—ing want.”

“As long as you ain’t hurting anybody, I’m on your team,” he added.

The Mulvaney-Bud Light controversy has fallen along ideological lines. Progressives support the TikTok star’s deal while conservatives see it as an insult to women.

Stern, now a dyed-in-the-wool Leftist, predictably sided with Mulvaney. Few knew ahead of time how Rogan would weigh in on the matter.

Podcasters Megyn Kelly and Andrew Klavan beg to differ. Both blasted the Mulvaney-Bud Light alliance on their recent broadcasts.

“Dylan Mulvaney infantilizes [women],” Kelly says. “Dylan parodies us, Dylan demeans us, Dylan dresses like a little girl, throwing her legs in the air as if this is what a woman is.”


  1. this is so dumb…if anything rogan may be agnostic…but he does not worship baphomet…..i even think him becoming allies with people like ben shapiro, jordan peterson and others may have him rethinking his position on his beliefs…the eye you say is the all seeing eye…is actually representing the third eye…..that is opened when one takes the chemical DMT…which is produced in the brain and is believed to be the seat of the soul where the soul connects to the physical brain infrastructure. it represents lifelong learning and expanding consciousness…not baphomet. ridiculous.

  2. The problem that some people have with Dylan promoting adult beverages is their huge audience is in the teens range. And for some reason they like to role play a little 6yo dancing around in a little pink dress. B4 you ask how I know this check out Odins Men on YT or uncensored on Rumble. He finds these clips and provides common sense commentary.

  3. It started with gay marriage. They said that’s all they wanted. Now we have terrorists and men in dresses punching speakers. I saw a poster that said if you don’t date trans then you are transphobic! This is now a religion. Bud Light is just a symptom of a much larger problem. Normal people are starting to notice this insanity. No blue collar worker wants his stuff associated with any of this.

  4. Yes. OF COURSE JOE ROGAN would defend a transgender. He literally tells you WHO HE WORSHIPS (a transgender DEMON) every time his show opens, it’s literally his logo. BUT YOU , BEING RIGHT WING MORONS have no idea what all those SYMBOLS that people keep throwing up in pictures or on video even mean so……

    Rogan WORSHIPS A TRANSGENDER DEMON named BAPHOMET , he tells your dumb butts this every single day of his life with his SHOWS LOGO which places the ALL SEEING EYE in the middle of his FOREHEAD ! But you lying fake Christians who aren’t at ALL baptized in the ONE BAPTISM of “One Lord , One Faith , ONE BAPTISM” fame don’t even understand your OWN religion so how could you understand HIS.

    Pro Tip: ACTUAL CHRISTIANS ARE ONLY BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST , the baptism of the PEDOPHILES IN ROME did not EXIST during the lives and teaching of the Apostles. See Acts 2:38, Acts 4:12, Acts 10:44-48 and Acts 19:1-6. The catholic church’s perversion of Jesus Christ’s command to baptize all nations “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost” only makes sense if you think SON is the NAME of the SON which obviously is STUPID. The Father has a name , (I AM Exodus 3:14) the Son has a Name (JESUS CHRIST(Duh ) and the holy ghost HAS A NAME ( THE COMFORTER John 14:26) When merely reciting the TITLES “FATHER , SON AND HOLY GHOST” over your dumb butt, NO NAME HAS BEEN APPLIED TO YOUR LIFE . This is over your heads obviously but if the Catholic mistake was “innocent” and they really thought that three things needed to be said when the word NAME is clearly SINGULAR in (Matt 28:19), they would have sought the NAMES of those THREE TITLES and your baptism would have STILL called the name of Jesus Christ OVER YOU! “I now baptize you into I AM JESUS CHRIST THE COMFORTER”

    And in case you were thinking that Jesus is “synonymous ” with Son , here’s the Word to quash that garbage the NAME OF JESUS IS ABOVE EVERY OTHER NAME THAT CAN BE NAMED. Philippians 2:9-10 .

    So again, no surprise you don’t understand what Rogan who has been caught multiple times using masonic hand signals is really saying! You’re a bunch of know nothings who think they’re “superior” to someone based on your skin color! You’re morons!

  5. I got news for Joe. People don’t drink Bud Light because they like the beer. They drink it because it’s a cheap way to get hammered. Plenty of other fish in the ocean, as that goes.

  6. Mulvaney supports transitioning children behind parents’ backs. So do all transactivists, it’s a base platform of theirs.
    When a trans or crossdresser starts talking about what a victim they are and inclusiveness they should be stopped in their tracks with “Do you support children being sex changed?” Their unchecked narratives and whining need to be put to a halt.

    How Rogan can’t see further than his nose on this one is peculiar.

  7. Stern’s a putz but how can Rogan be so clueless as to think this is 25-30 years ago, when transvestites and transexuals were an oddity as well as semi-comedic? People to be laughed at and used as the butt (no pun) of a joke?

    These people today are not to be mocked. The have been given victimhood status to be used as a weapon of oppression against normal, civil society and discourse. That Rogan thinks Mulvaney is an equivalent to Dame Edna or “Bosom Buddies,” shows cluelessness beyond belief given who he has been battling with and made a reputation on.

  8. “They don’t impact my life, they don’t hurt my life.”

    How many times will we say that until they commit violent and obscene acts against actual people due to their own biases and prejudices.

    Let’s be clear, Dylan Mulvaney is a equal gender offender. He offended normal men by endorsing Bud Light and normal women by endorsing Nike. Transgenders make a mockery of people. They should stay in their own lane. Even gays or lesbians are offended by the implications of blurring gender identities. No one wants to be forced into transgender relationships.
