Dunkin’ Donuts Pulls TV Ad

May 28, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Dunkin’ Donuts has pulled a commercial featuring TV chef Rachael Ray after observers noted that her scarf resembled a keffiyeh, a headscarf traditionally worn by Arab men, the Boston Globe reports. Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin claimed the keffiyeh has come to symbolize “murderous Palestinian jihad” and threatened a boycott of the donut chain, the newspaper says.
