    Due to pressure from Fox News' Nichelle Malkin and others, Dunkin Donuts has pulled an ad featuring spokesperson Rachel Ray due to an offensive scarf.

    Here's the story.


    Does Dunkin’ Donuts really think its customers could mistake Rachael Ray for a terrorist sympathizer? The Canton-based company has abruptly canceled an ad in which the domestic diva wears a scarf that looks like a keffiyeh, a traditional headdress worn by Arab men.

    Some observers, including ultra-conservative Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin, were so incensed by the ad that there was even talk of a Dunkin’ Donuts boycott.

    ‘‘The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad,’’ Malkin yowls in her syndicated column.

    ‘‘Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant and not-so-ignorant fashion designers, celebrities, and left-wing icons.’’

    The company at first pooh-poohed the complaints, claiming the black-and-white wrap was not a keffiyeh. But the right-wing drumbeat on the blogosphere continued and by yesterday, Dunkin’ Donuts decided it’d be easier just to yank the ad.

    From Michelle's blog:
    It doesn't sound like Malkin was getting nearly as worked up as that article you posted suggested, but even at this...how frickin dumb can you get? I actually like Malkin...but this is beyond silly.

    Anything, and I mean anything, that get's that flat chested, fat little porker, off my TV, is a blessing! My goodness is that woman one of the most annoying little pizzants on TV. Her voice, and absolutely awful commercials, are unbearable. :D

    words cannot express how stupid this story is. A Keffiyeh is not a "terrorist" head scarf. It's a Palestinian headscarf. People who think there's no difference there should be forced to listen to John Ashcroft's rendition of "Let the Eagle Soar" for the rest of their natural lives.

    I don't give a flying **** about Rachel Ray (whoever that is, I seriously don't even know), but the notion that the commercial should be pulled because she wears something that almost looks like something that ignorant Americans associate with terrorism truly makes me think that "Hitler had the right idea, he was just an underachiever."

    Rachel...baby got BACK!

    Before she was friggin everywhere, back when she just had one show on Food and one or two cookbooks, I liked her. Now...she becomes more annoying by the hour. OTOH she got drunk at a party and called Oprah a stuck up *****...so that's bonus points.

    Only on this board does the absurdity of banning Rachel Rae because of a head scarf, degenerate to her ass and then a bashing of Oprah.. unf...ingbelievable.. and quite a stretch.

    My vain hope is that Malkin was being satyrical, mocking the ultra-sensitive society we live in, where stupid words are blown out of context and minutae are scruntinized while the big problems are ignored.

    Sadly, I'm sure she was being serious.

    Do not understand how that comment is viewed as anti semitic, and do not understand what a "goodless p****ck is??

    The "goodless" comment come from HERE. _ A totally tasteless and inappropriate comment that, when looked at in the context of the thread, doesn't even fit. A crude shock value post. Even for those not particularly religious, it offensive. I'm not overly fond of certain religions myself, but you won't find me making overly crude comment about the divine spirits they worship either. It's some thing I'd expect to here from a child, but then again, I pretty much did.

    As for the other comment. Perhaps its not anti-Semitic per-say, but equally tasteless and crude to say something like "Hitler had the right idea, he was just an underachiever." It's something a 8th grader might says and shows NO CLASS, considering the fact that it's referencing a crusade to bring about the systematic destruction of an entire race of people. To make light of the fact that he "underachieved" despite wipping 5.5 million people from the planet is somewhat demeaning to the memory of said people, doncha think?

    I call general douche-baggary when I see it, and this is it. It should be self-evident. Your smarter than that GJ, I know that.

    For the record; I think the whole thing is stupid myself. Who really cares about this stuff. Plus, Rachel has just a bit to much "junk in the trunk" for my liking.
