On Independence Day, the far-left ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s called for “stolen Indigenous land” to be returned to the Native Americans, causing major country music star John Rich to call for a “Bud Light-style” boycott of the company.

Fourth of July comments by Ben & Jerry’s prompted significant backlash on social media after they called for the return of “stolen Indigenous land.”

“This 4th of July, it’s high time we recognize that the US exists on stolen Indigenous land and commit to returning it,” tweeted Ben & Jerry’s.

They also posted a link to a page on their website that promoted the Indigenous-led “Land Back movement,” which is “about dismantling white supremacy and systems of oppression and ensuring that Indigenous people can again govern the land their communities called home for thousands of years.”

The page called for the return of Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills to the Lakota, yet failed to address the “stolen land” that their company has built factories and stores on.

The woke ice cream company was quickly mocked on social media for this post, with many people asking them to return all of their property back to the Native Americans if they feel so strongly about this issue.

Others criticized them for using a minority as a political tool to increase their sales without actually having to give anything up themselves.

Conservative speaker and author Tim Young replied to Ben & Jerry’s tweet, writing, “Give ALL of your property and land back to the Native Americans right now then… or shut up.”

The political activist known as “Billboard Chris” also responded, saying, “The only right thing to do is donate all of your assets and retained earnings. Shareholders will understand.”

Political commentator Kevin Dalton wrote, “I look forward to the virtue signaling Ben & Jerry’s returning their factory’s land to the Abenaki and Mohican Native Americans that have lived in Vermont for 10,000 years.”

Country music star John Rich jumped into the conversation, writing, “Make [Ben & Jerry’s] Bud Light again.”

Rich posted another tweet saying, “[Ben & Jerry’s] should give all their stores to the Native American tribes that originally owned those zip codes. Cmon Ben and Jerry, be leaders.”
