Gays Protest Yuengling Beer Co. After Trump Endorsement

Chris Waits

People everywhere are boycotting D. G. Yuengling & Son’s brewery after they endorsed Donald Trump. 

Donald Trump's family have stood by him despite every twist and turn in his campaign. Recently, his son Eric Trump visited the D. G. Yuengling & Son's brewery in Pennsylvania.

"This is an amazing American success story," Trump said during a news conference, Reading Eagle reports. "We need a lot more of these."

The meeting served as an endorsement for the Republican candidate for president from America's oldest brewery.

"Our guys are behind your father," Yuengling said to him. "We need him in there."

The announcement did not go over well with the public as a boycott was organized against the company.

The first openly gay elected state legislator in Pennsylvania and 17-year customer of Yuengling, Brian Sims took to Facebook to voice his stance.

"GOOD BYE, Yuengling Brewery," Sims said. "I'm not normally one to call for boycotts but I absolutely believe that how we spend our dollars is a reflection of our votes and our values!"

Other outraged citizens have shown support by creating lists of alternative beers to drink while some, like David Perruzza, have taken it off of shelves completely.
