Keffiyeh Kerfuffle



Dunkin' Donuts has pulled the ad showing a picture of frontwoman Rachael Ray wearing a scarf that looks like a traditional Arab headdress.

RACHAEL'S AD ARAFAT-ENING
DUNKIN' DUMPS 'HEADSCARF' SPOTS


Frankly, I think the scarf is just plain ugly, and thus more fashion mistake than a deliberate attempt to push the keffiyeh onto the unsuspecting American public.

What do you think?

My underwear is red, which is the color of the Chinese flag, which obviously means that I endorse the repression against the people of Tibet.

Some people have way too much time on their hands.

why would ANYBODY wear a scarf or keffiyeh on a warm day with short sleeves on? subliminal?

wait'll they start telling her to let up on the pork rib recipes!

is it my imagination or is ray starting to look like an oompa loompa?

It's a shame people can't show just a little more common sense. Why boycott a company selling donuts because a gal was wearing a scarf which, it has been shown, is not even a kaffiyeh (learnt a new word there)?

It doesn't make sense.

Gawd forbid Ray's bad fashion sense offend one of those thin-skinned adherents of the 'religion of peace.'

Dunkin' was probably afraid of someone being stabbed to death outside of their corporate office.

Cube,

Who was pissed, the Haji's or the Isrealis?

If it is a kefiyeh shouldn't it be on her head? You'll never convince me her scarf was any kind of endorsement for the jihadis nor a hit on Isreal.

She's probably pretty liberal but so I far I don't know and I don't want to: have yo seen what she can do with ribs and Kale soup in just 30 minutes?! She is divine.

Love QQ

QQ: Actually, the anti-scarf charge was led by Michelle Malkin. She thought it bore a striking resemblance to the headdress worn by Arafat and complained about it in her blog.

Must be nice to have that kind of readership *sigh* not something I have to worry about.

Ray didn't have anything to do with picking out the scarf. It was purchased by her stylist.

BTW I have never seen her make ribs in 30 minutes, but her Kale soup recipe is delicious. Mr. Cube is always clamoring for it.

I would never have noticed that scarf except for the fact that it is kind of ugly, like you said.
Why must we always be so touchy about everything?!
It's a scarf, not some kind of statement.

It seems that everything has someone it offends. People need to just stop getting so butt hurt.
