This is huge. If Budweiser ends its business relationship with the NFL over the National Anthem protests, it will send a shock wave through the world of professional sports.
The company is asking for input from their customers. It’s a very smart move.
The Blaze reports:
Budweiser considers ending their NFL sponsorship over protests — and they want to hear from you
Anheuser-Busch is rethinking their NFL sponsorship, and they want your input.
In the wake of increased national anthem protests by NFL players, Anheuser-Busch is reconsidering its NFL sponsorship, likely because the protests are very unpopular among everyday Americans. Bud Light currently serves as the official beer of the NFL.
So the company set up a hotline for fans to call and give their thoughts about the protests and Anheuser-Busch’s sponsorship of the NFL. The number for the hotline is: 1-800-342-5283.
What does the hotline say?
When a customer calls the number, they are greeted by a recorded voice who gives them the opportunity to voice their opinions about the protests.
“If you are calling with questions or comments about Anheuser-Busch’s sponsorship of the NFL, press one,” the voice says. “At Anheuser-Busch, we have a long heritage of supporting the nation’s armed forces, veterans and military dependents. The national anthem is a point of pride for our company and for the 1,100 veterans that we employ. Please feel free to share your feedback after the tone.”
If this happens, the NFL won’t know what hit them.
