Dunkin Donuts has canceled a TV ad featuring cutie-pie cook Rachael Ray because in the ad, draped around her neck, is a black and white silk scarf with paisleys that some conservatives objected to because they thought it too closely resembled a keffiyah.

The Boston Globe has more details.

Says Dunkin Donuts: ‘‘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.’’

Weird days.
