In a world filled with real threats, hostilities and hatred — who would think Rachael Ray’s Dunkin’ Donuts ad would cause a stir?
The spicy little cook’s promo was pulled by company execs after a columnist suggested the black-and-white paisley scarf she was wearing in the ad resembled a kiffiyeh, the two-tone checkered design popularized by Yasser Arafat and sometimes associated with terrorism.
Oh, please. Don’t we have enough to be concerned about?
Well, I guess one can’t be careful enough. Little Rachael could be pouring poisonous EVOO.
But I suspect she’s never made anything more explosive than her Spicy Sausage Meatloaf Patties with Italian Barbecue Sauce.
