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 well-known US television chef Rachael Ray. She was wearing a black-and-white checked scarf around her neck that resembled a traditional Arab keffiyeh.
This fashion choice 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”. [source]
See, this is the exactly the same thing that happened to the ski mask. It was this innocently comfortable and extremely warm fashion item, until people decided to use them to rob banks, and now none of us are allowed to wear them.
Oh, Michelle…you racist idiot.
(seriously, when malkin and her army of gonads start having enough power to sway corporations, that’s when you know we’re in big trouble. see ya in the internment camps!)
