- A Budweiser distributor in Springfield, Mo., has cancelled the planned appearance of the Budweiser Clydesdales this week amid mounting backlash against the company for its partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
- Wil Fischer Distributing, which distributes Budweiser in the area, reportedly made the decision to cancel the Clydesdale showings over fears for the safety of their employees, OzarksFirst reported.
- The Clydesdales are a group of six horses that Budweiser has maintained as a symbol of the brand since their first appearance in April 1933 as part of a celebration of the end of Prohibition. The horses spend ten months of the year on the road making appearances on behalf of the brand. They currently are housed at the Anheuser-Busch breweries in St. Louis.
