When country music act Brent Gilbert is covering songs by Queen, he doesn’t want that gay agenda garbage shoved in his face, OK?!
Gilbert was covering one of the legendary rock group’s biggest hits, “Another One Bites The Dust,” at a recent concert in Alabama when somebody threw a Bud Light on stage.
For those blissfully unaware, Bud Light has been under siege by MAGA cry babies for three weeks because the brand partnered with transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney for an Instagram ad.
Country star Travis Tritt announced he will drop all Anheuser-Busch products from his tour, and Kid Rock posted an unhinged, gun-toting video over Mulvaney’s affiliation with the legacy beer company.
One conservative influencer has even launched his own “Conservative Dad’s ULTRA RIGHT 100% Woke-Free American Beer,” which costs $29.99 for a six-pack. #ripoff
Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth kind of capitulated to the bad faith venom, issuing a statement that said, well, absolutely nothing.
And yet, the performative outrage persists.
On Sunday, Gilbert was more than happy to participate. He looked at the Bud Light can menacingly then proceeded to slam it onto the ground.
“Yeah, f*ck that!,” he said, to the screams of thousands.
When a silver can–Coors Light?–was thrown on stage, Gilbert tossed it back to his drummer, who proceeded to shotgun the sucker.
Of course, the idea of somebody protesting a beer company’s affiliation with an LGBTQ+ person while signing a Queen song is hilarious. Freddie Mercury is one of the most flamboyant rock stars ever and an LGBTQ+ icon. Hundreds of people on Twitter pointed out the contradiction.
Here just a sampling of responses…
The song they were playing was Another One Bites The Dust by Queen.— Fizz-sama (@FizzAgain) April 19, 2023
Freddie Mercury is quite possibly the biggest LGBT icon of all time. 🤣

Y’all are so bad at this. https://t.co/og4lCTx2hZ
They’re playing Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” during this bit. Incredible.— Hunter Kelly (@hunterkelly) April 18, 2023
Gilbert’s contrived stunt–all to the tune of Queen–exposes the sheer inanity of the Bud Light backlash. Right-wingers are just trolling for applause; and frankly, embarrassing themselves in the process.
Check out the advertisement for “woke-free” beer. The ad begins with its creator, Seth Weathers, strolling in front of a public women’s bathroom, and then cuts to him leaving the men’s room–while taking a sip of beer.
Believe us: that’s much weirder than anything Dylan Mulvaney has ever done.
To a fraction of America, Gilbert may look like a brave warrior against the supposedly evil LGBTQ+ agenda. But to the rest of us, he looks like a clown who’s just smashing a Bud Light can while singing a Queen song.
Another one bites the dust indeed.

They’re playing Queen. You know, Queen? The band led by famous and noted homosexual Freddie Mercury? Am I the only one who sees the irony here or????????— 🅱️lackula (Jakey 2X) (@FiveForFedding) April 18, 2023
Lmao his name is Brantley Gilbert— Guy Freire (@guy_freire) April 19, 2023
Do you know what song you’re playing?— SpacePrez 💙 (@DevSpacePrez) April 18, 2023
Do you know who Queen are?
Saw Brantley Gilbert perform in 2009 and it was the worst concert I’ve ever been to. He was so drunk that he couldn’t even sing the words to his songs or barely stand, they brought a stool out for him.— Kelsey Dukes (@kldukes00) April 17, 2023
if you play queens another one bites the dust in reverse, you’ll hear something alomg the lines of it’s fun to smoke marijuana. true, fun fact.
Americans are idiots.
The whole thing was staged too.
I remember during the pandemic stores would have Corona beer cases and cases unsold while other sides of the shelves were empty..couldnt understand the simalarites…between the drink and the disease. Same here with bud light..drink it ,ts not going to change your gender,still tastes the.same..Bud/ Bud light is world wide only some Americans are upset.do they realize it has been drank by unknown gays, drag queens and Trans people for years. People are blowing ths Way out of purportion.ive seen videos people throwing it in trash
I bet they took it our of there after recording. The money was already spent. Way to go buy it destroy it. Bud won they got paid first
Excuse me but who is this guy? Why do I care? Country music sucks anyway. Sheesh, just flip the guy the bird when you see him and call him to his face what he is: a homeless looking fat ass w/ shitty music.
No idea who this is? Why give this redneck hick any press.
I don’t see the irony here. Freddie was a bisexual who did drag on the occasion, not a man claiming to be a woman sponsoring a cheap beverage.
The irony of you first appropriating the name of a famous Hollywood homosexual, then making some ridiculous claim that Freddie Mercury was ANYTHING but gay (So he married a woman! I did too! Still big-ass homo here!) is almost as hysterically funny as it is pathetic.
These guys are doing a great parody of how straight MAGA cult guys think of themselves as rebel troglodytes.
