    Dunkin' Donuts Ad Pulled Because of a Scarf

    Its official, political correctness has gone too far:
    'Paisley' or 'jihad?' Dunkin' Donuts yanks Rachael Ray ad - May. 29, 2008
    BOSTON (AP) -- Dunkin' Donuts has pulled an online advertisement featuring Rachael Ray after complaints that a fringed black-and-white scarf that the celebrity chef wore in the ad offers symbolic support for Muslim extremism and terrorism.


    Its a FREAKIN' SCARF PEOPLE!

    Idiots. Before too long these people will have snuffed out everything and we will be a dull listless society with no personality.

    I'm waiting for the Muslims to complain now that they pulled an ad that supports the Muslim faith.

    ^^What she said. I kind of want to slap her every time I see her. So, really, I guess I'm saying that things would be better if they shoved the scarf in her mouth.

    You have GOT to be kidding me...

    the sad thing is, I know you're not


    thats just pathetic, some people are a little too extreme with their beliefs.
    And I'm not talking about Muslims here...

    I watched that movie and somewhat do believe it will happen in some shape. Look at the people who are still having more than six kids, then look at their income and education.
