Rachael Ray is a coffee-selling terrorist

May 29th, 2008 // 123 Comments

Many of you have probably heard that Dunkin’ Donuts pulled an ad featuring Rachael Ray because she looks “too Arab-y.” Apparently, her scarf set the right-wing blogs a-buzzing who decided to wage war on my beloved Dunkin’ until they pulled the ad. Bloodied and beaten, the purveyors of sweet fried bread that fuel my morning gave in, according to the Boston Globe:

The Canton-based company has abruptly canceled an ad in which the domestic diva wears a scarf that looks like a keffiyeh, a traditional headdress worn by Arab men. Some observers, including ultra-conservative Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin, were so incensed by the ad that there was even talk of a Dunkin’ Donuts boycott.
”The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad,” Malkin yowls in her syndicated column.
”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.”

Dunkin’ Deeznuts issued the following statement after pulling the terror-inducing ad. (Holy shit, she’s got a latte! Duck!):

Said the suits in a statement: ”In a recent online ad, Rachael Ray is wearing a black-and-white silk scarf with a paisley design. It was selected by her stylist for the advertising shoot. Absolutely no symbolism was intended. However, given the possibility of misperception, we are no longer using the commercial.”

The only jihad that scarf makes me want to commit is against my hangover – with sweet caffeine. And if that’s not American, shit, I don’t know what is. That said, I’ll assume for their next commercial Rachael Ray, clad in the Stars and Stripes, will fire an AK at a Boston Creme – then dump scalding hot lattes on a gay wedding. Wow, I should work in advertising. I would sell stuff’s face off.

Thanks to BK for the “hot tip.” Get it? Hot? Like coffee. Comedy!

    i cant stand that dumb cunt.

  2. meee

    that’s the stupidest shit i’ve ever heard. we’re getting pretty uppity in this country.

  3. So what. Blow all those A-holes up. Why do we have to bend over backwards for those pussys

  4. blah-bloo-blow

    “will fire an AK at a Boston Creme”

    more like an M-60 at a French Cruller….c’mahn now. AK’s are for communists, and you wouldn’t want to destroy an American doughnut, justa French Socialist one. You suck at teh anti-terror propaganda. Are YOU a trrrrrist?

  5. Barack Obama

    Isn’t it obvious to everyone that anyone wearing a black and white scarf must be a terrorist or support one?

    The left-wing media must have made people blind. Oh wait, I bet you all non-FoxNews media must support terrorists.

  6. havoc

    Either way, she’s still annoying as fuck….


  7. This is how absurd our country is becomming. Anyone who wants to boycott because of a scarf should be tied up and forced to listen to a duet by Jessica Simpson and Mariah Carey followed by watching any movies they attempt to act in.

  8. I think an important thing to remember is that people in entertainment can sometimes be quite stupid. Yet, they are definitly not as stupid as stylists.

  9. clarkehead

    She’s a boob job away from being less annoying.

  10. Blade

    I’d hit it.

  11. snarky

    Oh, how ridiculous is that? The only reason they should have pulled that fricken ad is because Rachel Ray is an obnoxious has been who’s 15 minutes of fame is up. Then again…what nationality of people usually own Dunkin Donuts franchises…hmmm…I don’t mean to be prejudice, but hmmm. Yeah, I’m probably jumping to conclusions based on the color of someones skin; how stupid, so I’ll just shut the f up. But Lord knows the stupid “Binky” poster on here is gonna go apeshit posting about 911 this and that. Greeeaat, can’t wait.

  12. martygras9

    Come on! Let’s face it, Dunkin’s been doing subliminal advertising for terrorists for quite some time. Just look at this picture and tell me it doesn’t make you want to kill Jews.

    Michelle Malkin is the biggest cunt on the planet. Someone should round her up with Anne Coulter, Bill O’Reilly, Laura Ingram, and Rush Limbaugh and put them on the next manned space flight to the moon. Their brand of hatred and narrow-minded xenophobia has no place on this earth.

    Americans are funny.

  16. blah-bloo-blow

    It makes me want to kill that EVOO sucking slut Rachel Ray…is SHE a Jew?

  17. Barak Obama

    How dare you people make fun of Michelle Malkin? She’s even smarter than our current president, the smartest of all presidents.

  18. Auntie Kryst

    I always thought Dunkin Donuts nefarious plot to destabalize the U.S. was to spread type 2 diabetes one sweet sweet sweet Bavarian Cream at a time??

    clay Aiken is going to be a Daddy?! WTF?!?!

    TMZ has learned Clay Aiken is going to be a daddy. In case you didn’t process that, Clay Aiken is going to be a daddy.

    Here’s what we know. Multiple sources tell us the mother is Jaymes Foster, a record producer and Clay’s best friend. He lives at her home when he’s in L.A.

    We’re told Foster, who produced several Aiken CDs, is due in August. She’s the sister of record mogul David Foster. We’re told she’s in her late 40′s, though we could not confirm her exact age. Aiken is 29.

    We’re told Foster was artificially inseminated. But Clay is a lot more than sperm — we’re told he will have an active role in raising the child.

    No immediate word from Aiken’s rep.

    Listen to Keith and the Girl much? Sounds like Jesse Joyce ;-)

    Wow, between this and “Freedom Fries”, the right wingers must be proud!

  24. Jonny S


    I’m pretty sure those are still called Freedom Crullers not French Crullers.

    Its just fucking ridiculous how sensitive Americans are to thing related to the Arab world.

    Alot of this shit is a resemblance of the 50s when everyone was ultra paranoid of the Reds.

  25. Ruby

    What about the war on christmas? I know it’s May, but is that still going on? And if so: would me getting drunk on egg nog be helpful?*

    *) No need to reply, because the answer is always yes.

  26. blah-bloo-blow

    would that make John Goodman like the Osama Bin Laden of Dunkin donuts?

  27. jesus

    Oh no.

    Either she’s a terrorist or has simply been in a gift shop in an airport in Europe. Egad!!!!

  28. Joni

    This is like the third time a boycott is mentioned because of those scarves.

    I think they should ban all sorts of guns and knives from ever appearing on the massive media because they could be related to things like terrorism and that would be like very bad.
    Oh and also ban certain elements from the periodic table, and chemistry lessons, better be safe than sorry.

    “Obama” just saw the name of Michelle Malkin and came in his pants, and to think he did it two seconds. If Israelis dressed like that (and some do), are they ALL terrorists. But that’s rediculous logic, unless you’re “Obama”, in which case we should nuke Israel immediately (I think he came again).

    But seriously folks, Dunkin Donuts SHOULD be boycotted, but not because someone thought middle-eastern clothes = “terror chic” is a DUMBASS. The reason is they are partially owned by the Carlyle Group. For those who didn’t know, they are also one of the biggest Iraqi war profiteers. According to Wikipedia, “Connections between the Carlyle and the Bush family have inspired controversy, particularly in relation to the War on Terror and the Iraq War. George H. W. Bush and his Secretary of State James A. Baker III have at times been advisors to the group. One writer claimed that Saudi Arabian interests have given $1.4 billion to firms connected to the Bush family. Of this figure, $1.18 billion comes from contracts awarded to defense contractor Braddock, Dunn & McDonald, which Carlyle sold before George H. W. Bush became an advisor. A Carlyle spokesman noted in 2003 that its 7 percent interest in defense industries was far less than several other venture capital groups”.

    7% is hardly small potatoes. For more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlyle_Group#Controversy

    Now can we get back to making fun of Heidi Montag? I miss BOOOBZ!

  30. ubee0173

    shes a terrorist for sure, she should be detained immediately. her stylist must have a divine hatred for her because that scarf makes her look like she has no neck. geez- some people try to hard

  31. Watcher1

    Just another symbol of terror as fashion statement. You remember that ultra cool Che shirt, don’t you? Maybe you own one? Nevermind what it means. It’s cool! Nevermind, that it was sold to you by the dreaded, evil capitolist’s. It’s cool! Never think beyond what Hollywood or the lastest designer tells you. Now the keffiyeh is drapped across the shoulders of the American ” fashion forward”. It’s nothing new. Unaware, uninformed and hopelessly naive. Keep buying, America.

    Not interested in the meaning behind the symbols of jihad? It’s okay. Jihad is interested in you.

  32. Grunion

    Say what you want but it doesn’t change the fact this is the scarf de jour for arab terrorists. Does that make her a terrorist ? of course not. Is it in bad tatse? very. Is she a stupid brainless twat? Obviously

  33. Hatey McWrathenstein

    Let’s wage a “War on Stupid”.

    First target: Fox “News”!

  34. really.really.observant

    she’s definitely not smuggling WMDs in that tiny bra

  35. Barak Obama


    You’re damn right! So if Osama Bin Laden makes millions of profits by exporting lots and lots of red-white-blue flags and outfits and use those profits to support his terrorist activities to bomb us, then that shows him how un-naive we are.

    Who cares if we get annihilated with terrorists’ profits, as long as we all wear red, white and blue!

  36. #31 you are a little scary..

  37. aboo-boo-boobie

    Im very offended by that scarf! i can barely see her widdle boobies because of it, those arab bastards and they’re small boobie covering scarves!!!

  38. blah-bloo-blow

    #31. It’s a paisley scarf. lighten up.

  39. jannie

    How fucking hilarious, really. What kind of… stupid and paranoid person scans every single advertising looking for “terrorist” symbols? Get a life, really.

  40. Rush Limbaugh


    People who agree with my views. We’re usually too ugly to get laid and when we do get lucky, we’re terrible in bed and therefore do not get the next date. So you have to feel sorry for us because we really have nothing better to do, except possibly eat and get fat. And of course we’re not supposed to say bad things either in church, so we have to vent it out somewhere else.

  41. blah-bloo-blow

    #40 those scarves look nothing like the one she’s wearing.

  42. Barak Obama

    You fucking Barak trolls suck at this. Typical liberals copying someone else. Don’t have an original thought in your empty heads. Just like your new mesiah rockin’ Obama. Israelis don’t dress like that, it is an arab thing. You trolls would know this if you ever stopped blowing each other and ventured out of your gay bars you hang out in.

    I did my tour in Iraq so you liberals could keep butt fucking each other and saying how bad the evil conservatives are. You need universal healthcare to pay for your aids drugs. Fucking losers.

    Rachel Ray is pretty hot and makes more money than all of us. Is that why so many people hate her? She is succesfull?

    #1) I wouldn’t fuck her with YOUR dick
    #2) I hate her on air personality, I have no idea what she’s like in real life, but I couldn’t listen to her anymore, so I stopped.

    oh and I think you should do another tour in Iraq…there are more liberals who need to speak their mind and need you to go and fight for them to be able to do that.

  44. spectreman


    Thank you for your lovely example of hatred and narrow-minded xenophobia. Free speech for me, not for thee, eh? Maybe you don’t belong on this planet.

  45. Barak Obama

    If only I could come out openly and hang out at the gay bars so I could suck cocks and have my anus blasted with a grenade…

  46. Vince Lombardi

    Yeah, that’s all the world needs…. radicals Muslim extremists with MORE caffeine.

  47. Barak Obama

    Typical liberals copying someone else, just like me.

  48. Serge A Storms

    Shame she can’t dress herself. Or speak up when something is that ugly and unflattering. Worse is, that she has such bad taste, and leaves one in my mouth, why I don’t watch her anymore.

  49. justifiable

    I love her educating the “clueless”. Michelle Malkin is about as savvy as a nun teaching sex ed.
