Dunkin’ Donuts “Charcoal Donut” Ad

Dunkin’ Donuts in Thailand is now adding a new donut to the menu…. with a side of racism? FEAST your eyes on this ad… yup, its real.

Thailand Blackface Doughnut Ad

Dunkin’ Donuts, you have got to be kidding me. Whether this is in Thailand, South Samoa, the United States, or a secret island that no one has ever been, why would you think this is acceptable? The image of “Black Face” only puts racism 20+ years behind. Was there no other marketing scheme to advertise this new donut? How many people gave the “ok” for this to be pushed and publicized? I think I’m done here, what do you think?

One thought on “Dunkin’ Donuts “Charcoal Donut” Ad”

  1. I don’t think there’s nothing wrong with this ad at all. Would you had notice a “red flag” if the model was of another race maybe …if a caucasian modeled a lilly white flavor, lol. I do have an understanding why it may seem “rascist” because of the reference to the color of the models skin but still don’t thinks is wrong.
