AceShowbiz - Rob Schneider has weighed in on Garth Brooks' decision to sell Bud Light despite backlash from conservatives. When offering his two cents, the "Saturday Night Live" alum urged the country singer to just "shut up" instead of defending himself.
"I think next time, he's going to stay out of it. Isn't he?" the 59-year-old said when speaking with Fox News. "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.' "
"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." the comedian added. "I mean, just from a business standpoint, just shut up, say I have nothing to do with it."
Rob went on to note, "I'm just as susceptible as Garth-ego." He then explained, "You know, he had to put this in, 'Well, I think that, you know, I'm a good person because I did...' And it's like, shut up."
Garth has faced criticism for declaring that he will serve Bud Light in his new bar Friends In Low Places following the brand's partnership with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney. He has also doubled down on his decision to sell the brand.
"I get it, everybody's got their opinions but inclusiveness is always going to be me," the singer/songwriter stressed. "I think diversity is the answer to the problems that are here and the answer to the problems that are coming."
"So, I love diversity, all included. So, all are welcome," Garth continued. He acknowledged that his opinion may not align with the opinions of others and that is "okay," saying, "They have their opinions. They have their beliefs. I have mine."
