Everyone is losing their Schlitz over Mary J. Blige in a Burger King commercial. People are clutching their pearls and gasping, “A black woman singing about chicken is ESCANDALO!”
It made it waves on tv and was yanked from Youtube and every crevice of the internet. Burger King issued a statement that they pulled the ad due to a “licensing issue.” The fast food chain is attempting to give itself a makeover with new décor and new menu items that won’t turn your business end into a Slip n’ Slide for greasy fried pink slime. Jay Leno, Salma Hayek, David Beckham all joined Blige in the burger pimpery, but Mary was the only one who seemed to make waves singing about chicken.
