The Budweiser ad featuring UFC champ Conor McGregor has been banned by Ireland’s national TV network, RTE. The reason for the ban was that the ad could encourage the youth to drink. They cited advertising guidelines that “heroes of the young” shouldn’t market alcohol, and that the popular UFC champion falls under that category.
Budweiser has since defended their stance, saying that they had the ad approved by the alcohol industry’s pre-vetting service, CopyClear. McGregor also isn’t seen holding or drinking any beverage on the 40-second clip.
