WASHINGTON, DC - "Just so you know when you support things that don't support us then we don't support them"

That viral post from Perruzza is part of the backlash happening after Richard "Dick" Yuengling Jr. threw his support to Donald Trump this week.


Things are heating up for the 187-year-old brewery after fans of the barley soda have taken to social media to voice their concerns with the Trump endorsement. Several posts stated that patrons would no longer be drinking Yuengling or buying any of their products.

JR's Bar in Washington DC is one of many bars around the nation's capitol who are tapping out on the Pennsylvania beer.

Makes you wonder if companies will think twice before stepping into the political arena.
