Budweiser Super Bowl ad sparks controversy

CLIO, Mich. (WEYI/WSMH) - Many are up in arms about Budweiser’s Super Bowl ad, which focuses on Adolphus Busch's migration story.

In the ad, called “Born the Hard Way," Busch embarks on a journey from Germany to America to fulfill his dream of brewing beer.

Many of the ad's critics claim Budweiser is using the commercial to criticize President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban that, in part, bars citizens from seven Muslim-majority nations from entry to the U.S. for 90 days.

The ad has left people divided, and even threatening to boycott Sunday night’s Super Bowl game, along with the beer.
