Budweiser Pulled all
Its Product from the Shelves of a Convenience Store Where There was
Celebration of the Terrorist Attacks-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
A Budweiser driver delivering
beer to a convenience store in McFarland, California, walked in to
find Arabs in the store celebrating the terrorist attacks on
America. The driver called his boss and was told to remove all
the Budweiser products from the store and to tell them they'd never
be delivered Bud products again. Another version says Pepsi
joined to boycott the store as well.
There have been numerous attempts to validate this story, but with
no success. A spokesperson for Budweiser says the company has
investigated it and not found any evidence that it is true.
TruthOrFiction.com has received isolated reports of similar
incidents from other parts of the country, but they seem to be
localized versions of the same eRumor.
In October, 2007, a new version of this eRumor began circulating that
added Pepsi Cola to the story. It claimed that the Budweiser
driver lived next door to a Pepsi driver and that through that contact
Pepsi decided to pull its products from the store as well--and that the
store closed as a result. None of it is true.

How Budweiser handles those who laughed at those who died on 11
Thought you'd like to know what happened in a town north of
After you finish reading this, please forward this story on
to others so that our nation and around the world will know
about those who laughed when they found out about the tragic
events in New York, PA and the Pentagon.
September 11th, a Budweiser employee was making a delivery to a
convenience store in a town called McFarland. He knew of the
tragedy that had occurred in New York. He entered the business to
find two Arabs whooping and hollering and really cheering it
up. It was obvious they were elated with what had happened
The Budweiser employee went to his truck, called his boss
and told him of the very upsetting event. He didn't feel he
could be in that store with those horrible people. His boss
told him, "Do you think you could go in there long enough to
pull every Budweiser product and item our beverage company sells
there? We'll never deliver to them again."
The employee walked in, proceeded to pull every single product his
beverage company provided and left with an incredible grin on his
face. He told them never to bother and call for a delivery again.
Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice for that

Addition to the eRumor that began circulating in October, 2007:
And Now The Rest Of
It seems that the Bud driver and the
Pepsi man are neighbors. Bud called
Pepsi and told him. Pepsi
called his boss who told him to pull all Pepsi products as well!!! That
would include Frito Lay, etc. Furthermore, word spread and all vendors
followed suit! At last report, the store was closed indefinitely. Good
