What's wrong with this advert?
Something about this advert has upset some right-wing US bloggers; so much so that Dunkin Donuts has been forced to drop the advert.
The woman in the picture is US celebrity chef and she has been accused of "mainstreaming violence" and supporting terrorists. Can you guess what it is??
It's her scarf!! Arrrggghhh!!! It's just a scarf! Apparently, because it looks like a traditional Arab keffiyeh; she must be supporting muslim extremists. Because, you know, keffiyeh = terrorist.
The crazy thing is, Dunkin Donuts gave in to these ridiculous people. Truly, I despair.
