Leave it to the professionally offended to ruin everything. This time it’s Michelle Malkin, who led a charge of blogosphere criticism against Dunkin’ Donuts because one of its ads featured Rachael Ray wearing a scarf that sort of looks like an Arab headdress. Malkin says, in essence, that doing so supports terrorism. Despite Ray not wearing the scarf on her head, Dunkin’ pulled the ad to avoid “the possibility of misperception.” Malkin responded by saying she was glad an American company took a stand against Islamic terrorism. As opposed to all the American companies that support it. Sheesh. Something tells us this is where Michelle would like to see future American marketing efforts go.
