BrewDog’s “transphobic” advert causes outrage. Take a look at some angry responses


Storm in a beer mug?

Craft beer chain BrewDog has been slammed for producing an advert “offensive” to the LGBT community.

Called “Don’t Make Us Do This”, the video features BrewDog co-founders James Watt and Martin Dickie asking people to become investors in the company.

Over 8,000 people have signed a petition calling on the company to remove the advert.

The petition says: “Mocking trans women, sex workers and homeless people and that by doing so – is not punk or ethic.

Watt has hit out at claims that the advert is “transphobic”.

In a statement to The Drum, he said: “The video we created was to launch the CrowdCube aspect of Equity for Punks and was made in the spirit of fun and sending ourselves up – it’s a shame that some people have taken offence where none was intended.

“We have a history of supporting and championing the LGBT community, and will continue doing so… watch this space.”
