I think someone makin a connection between DD, a scarf and Rachael Ray to Muslim exptremists is a nut. Just sell the damn coffee. It's a shame we have to think about these godless idiots inour everyday rouine lives.

In lieu of checkered flags being waved at the end of each race, officials will now wave around a pink...excuse me, a MAGENTA flag to denote the winner.

The flag will have frilly ruffles, and sequins spelling out "Winner". We'll show those terrorists who's boss!

Absolute BS...one fascist pundit brings a national corporation to it's knees? What ever happened to the 1st Amendment? Time for the "sheep" to grow balls; keep the scarf, return the ad to the internet!

If Dunkin Donuts management is so stupid that they are going to listen to the hysterics of Michelle Malkin, who acts just like the jihadists she denounces, and if Dunkin Donuts is going to cave in, then they lose my business.

Until Dunkin Donuts apologizes for their silliness and replays the Ray ad, I'll be getting Krispy Kreme and Starbucks.

This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. Since when does it become a national headline when someone wears a scarf that excuse me has a similarity to another cultures religion. What has happened to this country and our freedom to wear what ever the hell we like..This was not against anyone group or person this was just a fashion put together that looks fine to me..All you people that get upset over something as stupid as this are really clear headed..You had all better get used to the American way if you plan on living here....enough is enough

There's been a rumor floating around the entertainment business for a while, that RR drinks Starbucks coffee in private.

This is getting rediculous now. Pretty soon we are all going to have to wear matching uniforms and will only be allowed to say 3 words that are deemed non offensive. Does the average person even notice what accessory someone is wearing in an ad? Let's grow up people.

Dunkin' Donuts should sue Michele Malkin for every nickel she has and will ever earn in her life.

She looks kind of hot in the scarf, I bet she bought it in the Hamptons for $1,000, but its good that DD pulled the ad, her shoulder bag could be mistaken for an ammo bag.

Sir Lancelot: No, it's too perilous.

Sir Lancelot: No, we've got to find the Holy Grail. Come on.
Sir Galahad: Oh, let me have just a little bit of peril?
Sir Lancelot: No. It's unhealthy.
Sir Galahad: I bet you're gay.
Sir Lancelot: Am not.

No denunciation of Malkin and no apology to Rachel Ray = no business for Dunkin Donuts

Hey douchebag. Michelle Malkin is Asian, not Jewish. Jews had nothing to do with this. But of course, what's a controversy without at least a few morons blaming the Jews for something.

Everyone needs to lighten-the-****-up, especially in America, and stop focusing on the things that are unimportant.
