Budweiser's Super Bowl LI ad, like many others, had some political overtones. This year, the ad told the story of the journey of Adolphus Busch to the U.S., where he would team up with Eberhard Anheuser to create Budweiser's parent company, Anheuser-Busch.
This pro-immigrant story sparked some supporters of President Trump to boycott the beer, leading #BoycottBudweiser to trend on Twitter. But so did #BoycottBudwiser, which is an unfortunate typo for a hashtag. And critics noticed.
WATCH | Here's the ad that sparked the boycott.
Some of the tweets were spelled correctly.
screw Budweiser. You should have learned from the response you got with Amy Schumer. No LEFTY political BS.— 🇺🇸Delta MIKE Echo (@MetalMilitia74) January 31, 2017
But if you're going to go viral, don't let Twitter catch you with a typo.
Poor Bud Wiser.
And here's the obligatory "alternative facts" joke.
But some boycotters said the spellers were missing the point.
And the typo may have been deliberate.
Don't boycott Budweiser because it is foreign owned and made an anti-Trump ad, boycott them because it taste like skunk piss.— Michael Keyes (@michaelkeyes) February 6, 2017
But some observers thought both sides forgot what exactly they were talking about.
