    Dunkin' Donuts apologized on behalf of its Thailand franchisee on Friday for an ad campaign that’s being called racist for its image of a woman in blackface.



    Dunkin’ Donuts, which is based in Massachusetts, apologized for the ad on Friday through spokesperson Karen Raskopf. "Dunkin' Donuts recognizes the insensitivity of this spot and on behalf of our Thailand franchisee and our company, we apologize for any offense it caused," read the statement, released to Yahoo Shine. "We are working with our franchisee to immediately pull the television spot and to change the campaign."

    Meanwhile, the CEO of the Dunkin' Donuts franchisee group in Thailand, Nadim Salhani, earlier shrugged off the criticism as "paranoid American thinking," calling it "absolutely ridiculous,” reported the Associated Press.

    It should be considered racist for passing off a round eye as a Thai.

    it's become insane...every single thing is perceived as racism with some people. i don't give a damn what anyone thinks anymore. while i'd never call someone a Reggie, i will continue to voice my opinion concerning the sad state of white/blaek relations and the fact that the blaeks seem determined to sabotage themselves and not take responsibility for ANYTHING.
    (should be interesting at dinner tonight, we're meeting friends who are uber-liberal).

    unless they're called KoonKakes, Dunkin Donuts should tell them to fuck off.

    is it black face, if they aren't supposed to be black? I'd assume they are supposed to be someone covered in charcoal like these guys

    Why is it a crime for whites to appear black when all the blacks in this country try their hardest to appear white?
