Rachael Ray Ad Pulled Due to Political Controversy

Rachael Ray's infamous Dunkin' Donut ad

 

While Food Network favorite Rachael Ray may have a lot of haters, no one has ever accused her of supporting terrorism… until now.

The 30 Minute Meals star was featured in an Internet ad for Dunkin’ Donut, advertising their line of iced drinks. Despite what appears to be a very normal, innocent ad, the popular donut chain was forced to pull it due to complaints about her advocating Muslim extremism!

How, might one ask, is this picture (seen above) have anything to do with Islamic terrorism? Well, according to columnist/blogger Michelle Malkin, the scarf Ray wears in the photo resembles that of a kaffiyeh, which Malkin explains, “has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad. 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.”

Dunkin’ Donuts Issues Recall

Glow StickSkull Pail

Dunkin’ Donut, in a rush of promotional fervor, gave away about one million pink and orange Glow Sticks beginning in September. The company is now voluntarily recalling them because the cap and lanyard can be removed and swallowed by a small child, or may even be a choking hazard. We tried to get specifics from the site itself but apparently they were overwhelmed or just couldn’t keep up. We do know however, that if you return said glow sticks, you get a free donut.

We found information on the Consumer Product Safety Commission site, where we also noticed that about 55,000 Albert’s Skull Pails are also being recalled because of excessive levels of lead in the paint. If things look that grim this early in the Holiday season, imagine what the recall list will be like come December.
