Despite the recent controversy surrounding Bud Light, Kid Rock is apparently selling it in his bar again - hopefully, he won't shoot it this time.

Bud Light has been under intense scrutiny recently, as it was recently replaced as the best-selling beer across the US.

This comes after the brand was met with criticism from conservative Americans after 26-year-old transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney received a personalized can of its product.

After this situation began to unfold in April, Kid Rock took it upon himself to post a video where he shot cases of Bud Light with his AR-15.

Though he never mentioned Mulvaney during the video, his message of shooting at the crates and declaring "f*** Bud Light" wasn't very subtle.

Despite taking a clear stance against the beer, it would appear that the musician isn't prepared to lose out on any potential earnings from it, as it is still for sale in his Big Honky Tonk & Steakhouse in Nashville.

As reported by the Daily Mail,  people who have attended Rock's establishment have noticed that bottles of Bud Light are still available, and people are still happy to drink it.

Both online and in-person menus still have the beverage available under domestic beers, meaning that Rock's initial stance of shooting a few crates didn't really hold any weight.

This will be an interesting development to those who have sided with Rock and scolded Garth Brooks after he announced that he would not be boycotting Bud Light.

Brooks, a 61-year-old country singer and bar owner refused to bow to pressure as he recently said in an interview with Billboard that his Nashville bar, The Friends In Low Places Bar & Honky Tonk, with be fully stocked with "every brand of beer".

Brooks took to Facebook where during a live stream he revealed: "We did an interview with Melinda Newman from Billboard, and from that came quite a little bit of a stir. So let's … address two things on it. One is diversity. Inclusiveness: That's me. That's always been me [...] Everybody's got their opinions. But inclusiveness is always going to be me."

"I think diversity is the answer to the problems that are here and the problems that are coming. So I love diversity. All-inclusive, so all are welcome. I understand that that might not be other people's opinions, but that's OK, man. They have their opinions, they have their beliefs; I have mine," he added.

Brooks was met with intense backlash from conservative Americans for his comments, but he also received praise from others for his inclusivity.
