Dunkin Donut Pulls Scarf Ad

I am sure most T-Nationers will agree with me that this is stupid. I mean, first of all, the scarf in the ad was not even one of those middle-eastern scarves. Second of all, even if it were, I believe this scarf is worn by a lot of people in the Middle East, not just “terrorists”.

This is like saying that anybody who wears a beret is a supporter of Che Guevara.

The real terrorists in this case are the right-wing bloggers who used their scare-tactics to pressure Dunkin Donuts to pull the ad. That is SO 2003!

Which makes me wonder, are all of DD’s customers fucking morons or just the one’s they want to appease?

This is the crap the the far left pulls, funny to see it from the far right.

I think it’s even funnier that you had to mention the “far left” at all to discuss how retarded this act was.

Bright paisley scarfs…the new symbol of terrorism.

How can I miss an opportunity to make fun of the nuts on the far left, especially when a right winger uses their tactics?

…Just because you usually ignore it when the right wing does it doesn’t mean it doesn’t go on…

Rachael Ray, yeah I’d totally do her. And then make her fix me something to eat.


I managed to fish a picture of the ad.

If all this racket is about this, one can only imagine what Muslims go through in their daily lives.

It is insane the way some people think…and these are the ones who will be voting in November.

Presumably they voted in large quantities in 2000 and 2004 – in case you haven’t noticed.

Yeah, just ask a teddy bear named Muhammad.

If you look closely, you can see a bomb in her purse.


Wait… so all the fuss is about a keffiyeh? That wasn’t even a major part of the ad?

That is good old fashioned American fail right there.

I always knew Rachel Ray was evil…now the word is out.

That scarf is so raggy though…turned a rag head into a rag neck I guess. The only possible way I can see this offending people is if terrorists or Muslims thought she was messing up their clothing on purpose. Then again maybe it used to be good then got all worn out…she could just be thrifty. All the hippies should be hanging from her nuts for recycling. I really need to stfu and just go to bed.

Honestly, though why would DD fold to these demands? Krispy Kreme fucking blows so I doubt they really need to worry about losing their customer base.

Except for them its not about terrorist scarves; its about getting to drive an SUV or not.

But yes, point taken.

Shirley you can’t be serious. You get the same crap from both ends of the spectrum all the time.

Don’t call me Shirley.

I’d boycott dunkin donuts for caving to this stupidity but for fact that I’m already boycotting them out of my desire to avoid being morbidly obese. I guess they know their customers and how to please them.

Fat, drunk, stupid and racist is no way to go through life.

If that woman had worn a “I love me some Osama” tee-shirt, THEN I could understand the outrage from all of the pudgy shiny people who called in about this.

I think I may be more worried that fat people are sitting at home and forcing major businesses to make decisions like this. Apparently, you actually can control the world from your couch.
