Actor and comedian Rob Schneider recently appeared on Fox News and torched Garth Brooks or his stance on Bud Light.
The country music icon got himself into hot water after taking a shot at John Rich who owned a bar but refuses to sell Bud Light.
Brooks mocked those standing up for their values and even used the virtue signal code word “safe” space to try and appeal to liberals and more than likely keep from getting canceled.
“Yes, we’re going to serve every brand of beer,” the singer said. “We just are. It’s not our decision to make. If you come into this house, love one another. If you’re an a**hole, there are plenty of other places on lower Broadway.”
“In my existence, one a**hole can turn the whole tide down there,” he added. “My thing is, let’s create a place that you feel safe in.”
After the initial dust-up he doubled down and used the woke term “inclusiveness.”
“I get it, everyone’s got their opinions,” Brooks said. “But inclusiveness is always going to be me. I think diversity is the answer to the problems that are here. And the answer to the problems that are coming.”
Note Rich’s response didn’t use any buzzwords and was a lot kinder than Brooks.
“The customers aren’t going to order it. I’m not going to stock it. We’ve only got limited area. I’ve got a limited bar. It’s like… I’ve got to put beer and whiskey and vodkas up here that people want to purchase and they want to support… And brother, I can tell you right now, it’s a vicious attitude toward Bud Light,” Rich said.
Adding: “If Garth is serving Bud Light in his bar, that’s fine. Garth can do that. Garth might find out not many people are going to order it. And at the end of the day, you have to put things in your establishment that people are going to purchase if you’re going to run a successful business. So, he might find that out.”
“Garth Brooks has always been the guy that said, ‘Everybody come to my show.’ It’s something that we love about Garth. You know, he makes his music for everybody. And that really is what music is about. You’re making your music for everybody. Beer’s for everybody, too… I think he probably sees the pain and division that’s going on in the country and wants to try to help that. If I know Garth at all, and I know him a little, that’s probably the impetus behind a statement like that. So, good for him. I wish him the best,” Rich concluded.
During an appearance on Fox News Schneider said that he believes Garth needs to stay out of the drama.
“I think next time, he’s going to stay out of it, isn’t he? I think Garth Brooks, next time, is going to shut his mouth, and he’s going to pretend like ‘I don’t have anything to do with what beer is chosen in my restaurant,’” Schneider said. “I think the culture is in a very weird little place of hypersensitivity one way or the other. And I think that’s why most people shut their mouths.”
“I mean, just from a business standpoint, just shut up, say I have nothing to do with it,” he said.
