Video: Mary J. Blige - "Crispy Chicken, Fresh Lettuce" [BK AD]

A new Burger King ad featuring Mary J. Blige singing about fried chicken has been pulled by the fast food restaurant. The company said that the commercial was taken off the air because of music licensing issues, but we all know it was because it had been criticized for being racist.

Burger King said that it hopes to have the ad back on the air soon after the licensing issues are resolved.In my opinion, they need to just scrap it.. and fire whoever signed off on this. This commercial is just too over the top for me.
“Having a black woman sing about chicken was no mistake. They’re trying to reach the ‘urban’ (aka black) demographic and they used you. Because God knows black folk won’t buy anything unless there’s a song, and preferably a dance, attached to it.” - Madame Noire's open letter to Burger King.
