"Hypocritical" Brewer Profits From Trump Mugshot

In April, Seth Weathers launched Ultra Right Beer, now often referred to as Conservative Dad's Ultra Right Beer, during the early stages of the conservative backlash against Bud Light's transphobic ad campaign, as reported by Ashlie D. Stevens, Salon's food editor.

Now, the company has introduced a highly controversial product: "Conservative Dad's Revenge" beer, featuring Donald Trump's mugshot on the label.


According to Ultra Right's website, each sale of this limited-edition six-pack, priced at $25, is aimed at "defending conservatives against alleged unconstitutional prosecution by the Fulton County District Attorney."



Moreover, 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the Georgia GOP Defense Fund and the David Shafer Legal Defense Fund to support Georgia's Trump electors facing what they consider unjust political prosecution.


Critics argue that Weathers publicly supported LGBTQ rights in 2017 and praised the Capitol Police for defending Congress against the Trump-supporting mob on January 6, 2021.


All the news: Business man in suit and tie smiling and reading a newspaper near the financial district.

Betsy Rosenblatt, a professor at Case Western Reserve University's School of Law, informed Spectrum News that using booking photos or mugshots without authorization is typically prohibited.


She explained that it's against the law to reproduce, create derivative works from, or distribute such images without proper authorization, except for the one lawful copy you may already possess, among other restrictions.

If anyone violates this copyright, it would usually be up to the Fulton County Sheriff's Department, as the image owners, to take legal action. Whether they choose to do so remains uncertain.


Rosenblatt also noted that the Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) might potentially file a lawsuit against Weathers.
