MillerCoors Sues Anheuser-Busch Over ‘Misleading’ Bud Light Ad

The king in a Super Bowl commercial for Bud Light may have “just wanted to return some corn syrup to its rightful owners” in the Coors Light and Miller Lite castles, but MillerCoors, which produces both beers, was not amused.

MillerCoors sued Anheuser-Busch on Thursday over the ad, claiming that it purposely misled consumers into believing there is corn syrup in Coors Light and Miller Lite, when there is not.

The lawsuit, filed in United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin, comes nearly two months after the ad for Bud Light first aired, on Feb. 3, sparking a feud between the beer companies and anger from corn lobbyists.
