Anheuser-Busch Asks Paramount Pictures to Obscure or Remove the Budweiser Logo from Film

Denzel Washington’s character in "Flight" drinks a lot throughout the film, but his portrayal of a high-functioning alcoholic pilot isn’t going well with Anheuser-Busch. Anheuser-Busch has asked Paramount Pictures to obscure or remove the Budweiser logo from the film. At one point in the film it shows Washington’s character drinking beer behind the wheel while driving. AB said that it would never condone the misuse of their product and that the company has a long history of promoting responsible drinking and preventing drunk driving. AB did not give Paramount permission to use their beer in "Flight."
