Dunkin Donuts pulls ad with Rachael Ray for wearing a "terrorist-supporting" scarf

Yes. Seriously.

http://townhall.com/Columnists/Miche...iyeh_kerfuffle

Quote:
The scarves are staples at anti-Israel rallies in San Francisco and Berkeley. Balenciaga made them chic on the runway. British retailer Topshop sold them stamped with skull prints. Urban Outfitters turned the keffiyehs into a youth trend a few years ago and marketed them as "anti-war scarves." Which brings us to Rachael Ray.


Dunkin Donut's statement:

Quote:
In a recent online ad, Rachael Ray is wearing a black-and-white silk scarf with a paisley design. It was selected by her stylist for the advertising shoot. Absolutely no symbolism was intended. However, given the possibility of misperception, we are no longer using the commercial.

I wave the white flag. I give up.

I beg Congress to pass a bill requiring all Americans wear the same clothes( like a school uniform), eat the same food, drive the same cars( no wonder why Obama bought GM ), live in the same houses, etc.

I am sick of tired of these groups who are offended at anything they think is racist, supporting terrorism, etc.

I mark these people as the same idiots who demand a warning label saying, " Warning: Milk contains Milk products". Or, " Warning: Ball hit off this bat may be fatal". America has become scared of itself......

I despise Rachel Ray for a whole host of other reasons, but this seems a little over the top. It looks like a scarf to me.

I'm glad they pulled the ad. i'll start getting coffee there again.


J/K.... I don't even drink coffee.


Seriously stupid though. It sucks that DD pulled the add because of a couple of jackasses. Just another example of the silent majority getting screwed by the vocal minority. You kind of have to understand why they pulled it, but you wish they had more balls and told the idiots who think they support terrorism because of a scarf to get their coffee some where else. Somewhere like canada or or mexico.

I hate this culture where people get offended at anything and everything. However, I do appreciate balance and I know that sometimes things can be offensive and should be removed. This isnt one of those times. This is just dumb. Some common sense required.

Oh yeah and I hate dumb labels too. People are always too quick to sue these days.
