People watching Super Bowl LI aren't shying away from the politics.
Tweeters are furiously posting #BoycottBudweiser after the beer company created a Super Bowl ad telling the immigrant beginnings of its founder, Adolphus Busch, a German who came to St. Louis in the 1800s.
The ad comes at a time when the issue of immigration is more politically charged because of President Trump's executive order temporarily banning immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries.
The company boasts the commercial as, "the story of our founder and his pursuit of the American Dream."
Here's a bit of what was said. It's not all bickering. Some people are even boycotting the boycott.
I'd like to know how many of the folks planning to #boycottBudweiser are not the descendants of immigrants? Are you all Native Americans?— Cathleen Miller (@CMillerWrite) February 5, 2017
