Mary J. Blige Singing About Chicken For Burger King Pulled
The Burger King commercial featuring Mary J. Blige singing about chicken has been pulled. But the fast-food chain is blaming music licensing issues for the decision not criticism of the ad.
The spot debuted this week. In it, Blige sings about chicken snack wraps.
But as the video went viral, some in the black community criticized the ad as stereotypical.
Burger King said Tuesday the commercial was pulled because of a licensing concern. The company said it hopes to have the Blige "ads back on the air soon."
