Mary J. Blige has been under fire for her new Burger King commercial. The new ad was featuring their Crispy Chicken Snack Wrap. The ad comes under scrutiny as people are wondering why a talented artist with so many accolades under her belt would lower her standards. Especially since the advertisement is selling chicken which some see as an African American stereotype.
If you are interested in seeing the ad now it has been pulled off of YouTube due to licensing issues. In fact, it is very hard to be found anywhere for that matter.
Blige has since stated that the ad was unfinished and it was supposed to look as if she was in a dream sequence. Unfortunately, that is not what had appeared and it caused quite an uproar.
If you can find it, catch a look at the ad and ask yourself whether the controversy is hyped or just a good old fun Mickey D’s ad..
