US Chain Pulls Plug On ‘Terror Scarf’ Ad


The US chain Dunkin’ Donuts has pulled an advert following complaints that the scarf worn by a celebrity chef offered symbolic support for Islamic extremism.

The online advert for iced coffee featured the a well-known US television chef.

She was wearing a black-and-white checked scarf around her neck that resembled a traditional Arab keffiyeh. The fashion choice it would appear has incensed at least one prominent conservative blogger, who said it evoked extremist videos.

The blogger, Michelle Malkin, called the garment “a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos”. Malkin would not confirm how many of these videos she has bothered to down load and watch when asked by reporters outside her home. However when also asked about the Khmer Rouge scarf and Spanish Inquisition cross draped around her neck she replied, ” I can wear what ever I want I am American. No one is going to tell me what I can and cannot wear in my own country.

Stylist’s choice

Other criticism followed when a right wing Lesbian Group denounced the shape of the top selling doughnuts. It was claimed by the group that the shape was insulting to woman as it exposed on a daily basis woman’s sexuality to uncouth male office workers across the nation. The coffee and doughnuts chain has now decided to drop the advert.
