According to The Guardian, a St. Patrick’s Day tweet posted by Bud Light was deleted after two hours, followed by an apology from a company spokesman who explained to Business Insider that the company’s intention “was only to be playful and celebrate the holiday.”
You be the judge. That photo was accompanied by the text, “On #StPatricksDay you can pinch people who don’t wear green. You can also pinch people who aren’t #UpForWhatever.”
“Wacky stuff,” huh? Like sexual assault?
Not everyone was offended, calling it a stretch to associate Bud Light’s tweet with rape culture.
Wherever you stand on Bud Light’s tweet, remember on this Saint Patrick’s Day to drink and tweet responsibly.
