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!

    She looks like a terrorist to me. Cancel her show and burn her books! Seriously. She’s annoying as fuck. With or without the jihadi scarf.

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

    I honestly don’t believe they make boobs that big.

  3. bedot

    It’s a f*cking scarf, idiots.
    Thanks for making all Americans look like A-holes.
    These nuts are what is wrong with this country
    This is the kind of stupid sh*t that should make it legal to shoot republicans in the face. I’d be an american hero.
    *running in Fox News, machine guns blazing, yelling”Go Joe”*

    who the fuck would think that looking at the ad? granted, she’s an annoying whore but i loves me my dunkies.

    clearly Fox sucks, but Dunkin Donuts is retarded for bowing down to those asshats.

  6. zygote

    that scarf is from H&M

  7. big teeth

    I love her small breasts, thick thighs, and wide hips. The only problem with this ad is that it doesn’t show any of those.. if DD remakes the ad and shows more body, then I’ll send a big thank you to Michelle Malkin..

    You know those scarves are huge in NY right now. Every little hispster douche in Brooklyn is wearing them. I think they’re issuing them with skintight jeans and Morrisey t-shirts. I may want to kill every last one of those scruffy, PBR drinking motherfuckers, but they aren’t terrorists. The real terrorists are the asshats on Fox News and all their republican buddies who are trying to scare up a controversy over A FUCKING SCARF. It’s a good thing we don’t have any more pressing issues for the media to be dealing with than Rachel Ray (who I adore by the way) schilling coffee and doughnuts in a scarf that’s all the rage right now. Fucking jackasses.

  9. dogonabone

    JFC! this scarf does NOT represent terrorism. It’s just an ugly, unfashionable scarf. It’d be perfect for stuffing into MMalkin’s mouth to gag her quiet.

    I don’t eat doughnuts and I don’t watch RRay, but I can’t believe that anyone would consider seriously anything Michelle Malkin spews. She’s might end up the reason I turn my vote over to the liberals. Republican’s sound so fucking retarded.

  10. eurotrash

    indeed it is an arab thing, (but not a terrorist thing). and just so you know there are a lot of arabs and muslims in isreal too.
    its true that a lot of people wear it to show support for the palestinian cause – and even this by no means makes them terrorists or means that they support terrorism. Israel has gotten away with treating the palestinians much like how they were treated by nazi’s only because of the american support they get; these days the average american has no fucking clue what the isreali-palestinian problem is about, and say they support israel because of what happened to jews in WWII.
    For every palestinian suicide bomber there are many more jewish bombs – this horrible conflict has cost many more innocent palestinian lives than innocent israelis.

  11. twzzlrgirl

    The only thing I think of looking at that scarf is being tied to the bedpost with it, having wild sex, and then eating dunkin donuts in bed with a cherry coke.

    Yummy!!! :)

    Tell me that’s not the most American thing you’ve heard all day.
    Red, white and blue all the way, baby.

  12. kirk

    oh come on. this is the most retarded thing that I have ever heard. Trying to find words to describe this….

    is patheti-sad a word?

    My God, I must be the last remaining intelligent conservative alive. Abe Lincoln himself would rise from his holy grave and ho-slap the whole GOP for something this stupid.

    poor Duncan Donuts….

    well, I guess this is good for Krispy Kreme. good. my stock will go up.

  13. flameon

    I always wanted to go jihad on Rachael Ray…

  14. jonny

    Go watch a few videos of people having their heads sawed off while they are still alive. They are not hard to find…there are hundreds of them on the internet. ALL of the people doing the killing are MUSLIMS. MOST of them are wearing kaffiyehs. If that was your son being killed and then you saw some dumb bitch wearing the same scarf in a dunkin donuts ad….you would be appalled. But most of you assholes are too fucking stupid to think anything through.

  15. jonny

    #61 Eurotrash-

    you couldn’t be more hopelessly wrong. If the Palestinians laid down their weapons…there would be Peace. If the Israelis put down their weapons…they would be driven into the sea. Arabs and Muslims in Israel have the right to vote and own property. They have representation in the Knesset. Jews and Christians in Muslim countries.. what few are left…have no rights at all. They are “Dhimmi”. Which is what you will be some day. Look it up dickwad.

  16. Stoney

    @ Auntie Kryst

    That was a good one

  17. Idiots Should Not Breed


    There were millions of Jews killed by Germans. If that had been your ancestor being killed and then you saw some dumb fuck eating a German sausage or drinking German beer in an ad, you would be appalled.

    There are hundreds of children being abused by Catholic priests. If that was your son being fucked and then you saw some random Catholic fuck on TV, you would be appalled.

    And so on. You got the idea? Or you’re too slow for this?

    Who, dumb ass, is the asshole too fucking stupid to think anything through? Why can’t you start using your own head and balls, instead of having Michelle Malkin’s dry pussy boss you around?

  18. Tiffany

    I can’t believe that you made it through an entire post featuring donuts and lattes without mention of Britney Spears. Bravo.

  19. david

    This is retarded! How stupid can these people be….Those scarves are very main stream now, even H&M has them. Who cares if they are Palestinian!

    Cons r Racist Fucks

    what’s up with that Billy Idol upper lip on her ??? Is she selling donuts to the tune of White Wedding??

  22. mrah

    Isn’t the point of the IRAQ war to help them? Al-Qaeda are the terrorists, but they’re in Afghanistan, not Iraq. This has nothing to do with the war, just stupid people trying to create stupid fears.

  23. ice

    Horray for terrorists!

  24. Conservatives Need to Get Laid

    Michelle Malkin is just pissed off finding out that her husband is fucking their illegal immigrant moslem babysitter.

    I mean, that chick is in a burqa, but she still looks sexier than her naked.

  25. squid

    since the background is the Capitol of Oregon, Salem. Oregon must be filled with terrorist also. Go Team!

  27. xx

    I don’t know who should be more ashamed — the people calling for the pulling of this ad, or Dunkin Donuts for giving in.

    Sick, and sad. Ashamed to be an American, yet again.

  28. ella

    the keffiyeh has come and gone since the 80′s purely as a fashion trend … urban outfitters used to sell them. it’s so silly … how could a news chick like michelle malkin really think that rachel ray dressed herself for a national commercial. she must be as stupid as ann coulter

  29. #43 is sweet (for guys)

    Dude you didn’t do any tour of duty to keep me safe coward. Bid fucking deal asswipe. Tell me you went man on man with the same level of technology and I will be impressed you shit talking cock dreaming little right wing homo.
    You mindless morons are the reason this country is so fucked right now.

    Don’t think because you went overseas to kill the people in some little country armed to the teeth you are now a little man. I don’t need anyone to protect me shitface.

    #65 Jonny – Of course, but so many couldn’t care less. Point these things out to the uninformed and the darlings would like to “shoot you in the face”. Precious, eh?

  31. OMG

    Thanks for showcasing the best of the “Party of Tolerance & Diversity”.
    (Party of Hypocritical asswipes)

    #70 (& #71- doubleposting geek)- they are mainstream in Bezerkely, nowhere else.

  34. MsPlease

    #11 is an idiot. I dont know of any Palestinian Dunkin Donuts owners. I think he is talking about East Indians, like from India, who arent muslim terrorists and who nobody is even talking about. Shut the fuck up Snarky. Its red state people like you who give Americans a shitty name

  35. Long LIVE USA

    I just read the most disgusting and nauseating thing here. I did not believe in Jewish media before but the very fact that this has been kept silent and that I have never heard of it speak volumes.

    Jewish rabbis or I guess other jews who circumsize babies suck their penis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am not making this up.

    Go to Slate magazine: http://www.slate.com/id/2133654/fr/rss/)

    OMG it happens 4,000 times in New York according to research!!!!!!!!!

    Here’s another article on it:


    That’s just such a backward and and nauseating ritual and I don’t know if this is not pedophilia, then what it? And the jewish religion permits it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    according to wikipedia:
    in New York “the Orthodox community is rapidly growing due to the high birthrates of Hasidic sects, while the numbers of Conservative and Reform Jews are declining”

    Why does nobody talk about these practices? What else are Americans not told!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gross!

  36. Malkin_is_a_vapid_cunt

    Malkin is a vapid cunt desperately seeking publicity. I assume that dumb hoe doesn’t have any scarves in her closet?

    Moreover, the keffiyah is an adornment for Arab men. And while Rachel Ray isn’t fuckable, she is more female than male.

    So, yeah, Malkin is a vapid cunt.

  37. Randa

    Totally agree with most of ya! WHAT CRAP! So what? Now if your arab or wear something that is “different” we should all protest and shoot? Remeber when this was America and we actually were a country of Freedom and Understanding? Remember that? Oh, the good ole days when we weren’t on our way mimicking Nazi Germany.

  38. diana

    Murderous palestinian jihad??? for heaven’s sake, what do they call what the israelis are doing to them palestinians then? “Heaven-sent-earth-cleansing”????!!!!!

  39. opinion

    amiricans are really stupid really….,,,,,…..

  40. Donkey Punch

    Fox news is America. Hatred and ignorance.

  41. eurotrash

    damn jonny; you really didn’t get what i was sayin… whether or not minorities have representation in the government of the country they live in has absolutely nothing to do with what i said. and yea the israeli-palestinian conflict has become so complex that if only one of the two sides laid down their weapons it would be taken advantage of by the fanatics.. clearly the situation requires both sides to come to a mutually fair agreement.
    the hatred for isreal in the muslim community is because of the way the palestinians have been treated – they’ve been driven off their land and forced to live in the most aweful conditions in camps, military raids have left entire villages beaten,raped, or dead. the humiliating treatment at border checks is sickening…and once again everytime a suicide bomber attacks, the isreali military response is of a far greater magnitude and leaves many more innocent civilians dead.
    btw, im female so im sure you can come up with something more appropriate than dickwad.

  42. c

    this is the most inane “controversy” i’ve heard of in a while. a paisley scarf? seriously? my god. the level of fear that this country runs on never ceases to astonish me.
    what would be really great is if the right wing started complaining about all the indian families that own all of the dunkin donuts stores…because they look too arab-y. i guarantee that’s what all of those racist jerks think already, anyway…

  43. TAylor

    This country is becoming more ridiculous by the seconds.

  44. sara

    omgg, this scarf doesnt symbolise arab terrorists. Its an traditional garment and arab people was wearing it, each culture have they traditional clothes and because it concerns arabic people they think its related to terrorism. Also, the word jihad means strive, to defend arab people. it doesnt concern terrorism. and arab are not terrorists. the media gave this prejudice about them. these people who did this thing are very racists and ignorants
    and eurotrash (94.) is right

  45. Jonny

    Hey all you liberal DUMMIES! It isn’t just Republicans who are offended. Palestinians also get upset when you wear them….. Are they RACIST? YOU DICKHEADS! Example from retail store in Australia today:

    Ms Tieger said she had “no idea about the politics” when she bought the scarf at the Tree Of Life store.

    “I thought it was a nice scarf, a cowboy scarf. I thought: ‘It’s black and white, no-one will say anything to me because that’s all we can wear [with our work uniform]‘.

    “A Palestinian customer came up and asked me if I’m wearing this scarf as a fashion statement or for political reasons.

    “I had no idea what he was talking about because I don’t follow politics at all. I just laughed it off.

    “Two days later he called and complained about it.”

  46. Lucia

    Lol, is like saying that people with moustache are evil because Adolf Hitler had one.

  47. Jonny

    You are once again completely wrong. The Palestinians were never driven off their land. Read your history books instead of liberal propaganda. The UN created Israel. The Arab population was never forced to leave, MANY stayed and thrive to this day, as I explained earlier. The others chose to leave at the behest of the surrounding Muslim countries, with the garantee that they would attack them and make the land Muslim. They did attack, all three surrounding arab nations, and lost. You really need to learn thehistory of the region.
