Rachael Ray is kind of cursed when it comes to her Dunkin’ Donuts ads: First she was accused of being a Starbucks aficionado, and now — even worse! — a terrorist sympathizer. According to the The Boston Globe, Dunkin’ has pulled ads in which she wears a scarf resembling a kaffiyeh, which conservative Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin protests is “the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad.” Yikes! We’re sure Rachael (or her stylist, who picked the thing out in the first place) was just trying for more of the indie-rock cred she got with her South by Southwest showcase, but the question remains — why would conservatives turn on Rachael when she was so cool about Cindy McCain jacking her recipes?
In poor taste?
