Share Sara Boboltz May 31st 2019 1:50PM Heineken International is the latest company to pull its sponsorship from the Fresno Grizzlies after the California minor-league baseball team showed an inflammatory video likening Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to North Koreas Kim Jong Un and other enemies of freedom during a Memorial Day game.

“The video was not produced, created or commissioned by the Fresno Grizzlies. It was carelessly taken from YouTube. There are multiple versions of this video available on the internet, the version that our employee selected contained offensive content,” the team said. “The airing of the video in the ballpark was the result of an unintentional oversight by an employee who did not view the video in its entirety. The employee responsible has been reprimanded by the organization.

Heineken brands Tecate and Dos Equis released statements Thursday saying that the video does not represent their values.

Tecate has always been about togetherness and we do not support the views expressed in the video, that was aired during the Fresno Grizzlies game on Memorial day. We have ended this relationship effective immediately and have let the team know of our decision, the brand said in a tweet.
