Megyn Kelly slammed comedian Shane Gillis for endorsing Bud Light — saying it was a “slur” to people who support Republicans.

Gillis, who is scheduled to host “Saturday Night Live” this week, revealed on his social media that he had partnered with the Anheuser-Busch-owned brand — which was boycotted by large segments on the right after trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney touted Bud Light in a social media campaign.

Kelly took aim at Gillis and other celebrities because they “bend the knee to Bud Light.”

“He went from doing slurs the left finds upsetting to issuing one out of his mouth the right finds upsetting, which is Bud Light,” she said during Monday’s episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show” on Sirius/XM.

“I’m actually not sure what he’s doing either because not only is he going on ‘SNL,’ but he’s partnering with Bud Light, which is basically a slur in Republican circles.”

Gillis was fired from the “SNL” cast five years ago due to racist and homophobic comments he made on a podcast.

The comedian recently visited the Anheuser-Busch brewery in St. Louis, Mo., to tout his support for the beermaker.

“Excited to announce partnership with Bud Light,” he wrote to his 1.2 million Instagram followers last week.

The post included photos of Gillis posing with the famous Clydesdale horses and pouring hops into a large pot.

Kelly ridiculed Anheuser-Busch for its attempt lure back disgruntled Bud Light drinkers.

“Will you go buy Bud Light because Shane Gillis got paid a bunch of money to go speak for them? Does that help your life?” Kelly said.

“Okay. People are gonna have to make that decision. I know where I fall.”

The Post has sought comment from Gillis.

The Bud Light boycott led to a steep decline in sales of the brand, which was knocked off its two-decade perch as the nation’s most popular beer.
