Reports have surfaced that Dylan Mulvaney, a transgender influencer, is facing a rapid decline in marketability, which many believe is connected to the infamous Bud Light debacle. Mulvaney, a 26-year-old, recently spoke at Penn State University about his transition, but his speaking engagement failed to attract a significant audience.
During the event, Mulvaney donned a Penn State jacket and discussed the challenges he faced during the past year, referring to it as the “hardest year of my life.” He also expressed his desire to pursue musical theater productions that involve a large number of transgender people.

While Mulvaney attempted to promote Penn State as a new sponsor, the event organized by the Penn State Student Programming Association received little attention. Fox News even reported that the lecture drew few attendees, despite Mulvaney’s effort to lead the audience in the school’s iconic “We Are” chant.
If we judge Mulvaney’s ability to attract a crowd based on this event, it’s safe to say that any future musical theater productions featuring him would be a colossal failure. Even Mel Brooks’ characters, Leo Bloom and Max Bialystock, would be left speechless by the lackluster turnout.
According to Outkick, Mulvaney expressed frustration regarding his partnership with Anheuser-Busch, claiming that he felt companies were exploiting his identity for financial gain. But let’s be real here, Mulvaney willingly entered into those partnerships and now wants to play victim. It’s just another example of the left’s victim mentality, always looking for someone to blame.
Young Americans for Freedom posted a photo of the almost-empty auditorium, clearly highlighting Mulvaney’s inability to draw a substantial crowd. It’s embarrassing to see an influencer who claims to be so influential being left with rows upon rows of empty seats.
Campus Reform reported that Mulvaney typically receives an honorarium of $40,000 for his speaking engagements, a fee that is paid for with student funds. This raises questions about whether it’s appropriate for colleges to spend student money on individuals who fail to generate significant interest or deliver meaningful content.
To add insult to injury, just a week before the speaking engagement, Forbes deemed Mulvaney one of the “30 Under 30 Social Media” influencers. It’s astonishing how such a title can be given to someone who struggles to engage an audience with their so-called “influence.”
In conclusion, Dylan Mulvaney’s marketability is rapidly deteriorating, his speaking engagements failing to attract crowds, and his claims of exploitation falling flat. It’s time for influencers like Mulvaney to take a step back and reevaluate their approach, rather than blaming others for their own failures.
