If you have heard about Mary J Blige’s new Burger King commercial but haven’t seen it for yourself it’s probably because they have taken it down from YouTube!
The Queen of Hip Hop Soul recently recorded a song for a Burger King Commercial. The ad promoted Burger King’s new chicken wraps. Now the video has become so controversial that YouTube pulled the video from it’s site. The new spot sparked more than its share of online backlash as most fans deemed it selling out and stereotypical and were shocked that Mary would lend her name (and voice) to a sandwich. Fans took to Twiter to share sentiments like, “Just watched @maryjblige singing about chicken in a Burger King ad, and stared the blankest stare of my life” and “Oh @Maryjblige how I LOVE thee..but im not sure about this Burger King ad.”
Luckily we found the video on WorldStar and can give you a chance to judge for yourself.
Is this commercial controversial? Is Black people singing about chicken that sensitive? Give us your thoughts.
