Dunkin’ Donuts Sells Racism with the Morning Cup of Joe in Thailand

Nothing like a little bit of off-shore non-compliance to sell shitty coffee and say it is okay to perceive another race, the African race, in an Asian race country as some kind of decorative object.

The new global culture should try and spread tolerance and not sell intolerance for the mere sake of the increase of CEO Nigel Davis' annual bonus.


Dunkin' Donuts on Friday apologized and will pull an advertising campaign running in Thailand that features a model in blackface makeup offering a chocolate doughnut.

Dunkin' Donuts in Thailand had come under fire Friday for an ad that the Human Rights Watch said was racist.

The ad in question was for Dunkin's "charcoal donut" and it features a model wearing blackface makeup and bright pink lipstick holding up a bitten doughnut. The translated Thai slogan reads: "Break every rule of deliciousness."
