TMZ last night published a claim that Budweiser has “bailed” on its usual party zone at the Olympics. The company is not one of the official Sochi sponsors.
TMZ Sports has learned Budweiser has decided to NOT throw its traditional Winter Olympics party this year and it’s all because the company is not comfortable with the situation in Russia. In the past, Budweiser was known for hosting huge parties — like the Club Bud bashes during the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver and at the 2006 Olympics in Turin. But we’ve learned … the King of Beers has decided it won’t be throwing a similar party at the ’14 Games … at least, that’s the plan for now. In fact, we’ve seen an email from a Budweiser rep which says the company does not want its U.S.-based representatives in Sochi … and the message is clear — the terrorist threat is simply looming too large.
