Rachael Ray’s Recipe for Brouhaha

By: Celebuzz / May 28, 2008

The scarf that Rachael Ray was recently wearing in a Dunkin’ Donuts ad apparently too closely resembled a Palestinian kaffiyeh, according to conservative Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin, and she was going to make sure everyone knew it.

Incensed by Ray’s attire, Malkin said, “Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant and not so ignorant fashion designers, celebrities and left-wing icons.”

Despite the fact that it’s a paisley scarf being worn by Ray and not a kaffiyeh, Dunkin’ Donuts  pulled the ad after initially poo-pooing the uproar.

Good thing Malkin spoke up, lest terrorists wrongly take credit for trying to slowly murder Americans by enabling them to gorge themselves on cholesterol-laden donuts until they die one by one of heart attacks. Americans do a fine job killing themselves, thankyouverymuch.
