Can you guess why Dunkin’ Donuts pulled the above ad featuring Rachel Ray?
First, you have to ask the question, when is a scarf not a scarf?
According to conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, it’s when it’s a keffiyeh, a style of dress “popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos.”
Dunkin’ Donuts pulled the ad after threats of a boycott by Malkin and a group of conservative bloggers, and stated that the scarf “was selected by a stylist for the advertising shoot. Absolutely no symbolism was intended.”
Much ado about nothing?
