Bud Light Parent Company’s CEO Is Former CIA

An unexpected revelation came to light on Friday, as Benny Johnson of Turning Point USA took to Twitter to share that Brendan Whitworth, CEO of Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Bud Light, previously worked as a CIA Operations Officer.

Bud Light recently sparked significant backlash for featuring transgender activist and biological male Dylan Mulvaney in its marketing campaign, costing the company billions in market value as customers ditched the light beer in response.

The job description for Whitworth’s position says that he specialized in “the recruitment and handling of human sources with access to vital intelligence that prevented and disrupted terrorist threats.”

In the LinkedIn profile that has since been removed and reinstated, Whitworth had listed “Operations Officer, Counterterrorism Center, Clandestine Service” as a past occupation from 2001 to 2006.

The CEO mentioned working in various locations, including Washington D.C., Pakistan, Tunisia, and Iraq.

Following the exposure of Whitworth’s past employment, Johnson provided an update via Twitter on Saturday, explaining that the Anheuser-Busch leader had “deleted” his LinkedIn profile.

“UPDATE: Budweiser CEO Brendan Whitworth Just DELETED His Account When Exposed As A CIA Agent,” he tweeted.

However, as of Monday morning, Whitworth’s account appears to be back online.
