Dunkin’ Donuts seems to think it’s a possibility. The chain has pulled an ad starring the domestic day-time host because there was some fear that viewers might mistake the scarf Rachael Ray is wearing in the commercial as a sign the company and/or Ray are secretly Arabs! Of course, by viewers we mean, conservative talking head Michelle Malkin who says:
The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad…Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant and not-so-ignorant fashion designers, celebrities, and left-wing icons.Strange isn’t it, that up until now no one has considered the possibility that Osama bin Laden was secretly operating through celebrity endorsements of fast food chains. Good thing Rachael Ray’s middle name isn’t Hussein or Malkin might have called for someone to cancel her television show, too.
