What is the world coming to? Dunkin Donuts had to pull an ad for its iced coffee drinks featuring Rachael Ray wearing a scarf that a Fox News pundit and right-wing blogger complained looked like a symbol of terrorism because she thought it resembled what Muslim terrorists wear. I think that is just ridiculous especially when I saw a picture of the scarf she was wearing around her neck. It looks like a cute black and white paisley scarf (a great way to jazz up a basic tee as far as I am concerned) and nothing more than that.
When fashion gets drug into the heated world of right-wing pundits and political bloggers and people get offended by something as simple as a fashionable accessory, it just shows how people will grasp at straws for things to complain about. It was obviously not meant to be a symbol of terrorism but rather to make Rachael Ray look cute and stylish for an ad that was merely selling iced coffees. As far as I am concerned fashion is fashion and should be left at that! You can read the full article about the controversy by clicking here. What do you think? Should they have pulled the ad? The real question should be who made the bag she is carrying, it is super cute!
