A Burger King commercial of Mary J. Blige singing the ingredients of their new crispy chicken snack wrap was released early to YouTube and has outraged fans claiming it is racist, and she is a sellout.
People claiming the video is racists believe so because Blige is singing about fried chicken, which is a type of food stereotypically loved by American black people.
Gayle King said today on her morning show that it was not racist because a lot of different types of people like fried chicken.

The Burger King commercial seems less racist than it is just stupid and an example of a celebrity selling out to make easy money.
The Insider reported that Blige was paid $2 million to make the commercial.
The host Kevin said she was above this type of commercial. However, obviously, she was not since she sang the song and cashed the check.
When the show interviewed Gladys Knight at “Dancing with the Stars,” she said Blige’s ad was okay, and she sang for KFC and Pepsi when she was at her most popular point in her music career.

In the Burger King commercial a man asks: “What’s in those new chicken snack wraps?”
Mary J. Blige says: “What’s in the chicken?” and sings the ingredients: “Crispy chicken, fresh lettuce, three cheeses, fresh dressing…”
After hearing fans’ negative reactions, she issued a press statement through Advertising Age, stating: “I agreed to be a part of a fun and creative campaign that was supposed to feature a dream sequence. Unfortunately, that’s not what was happening in that clip, so I understand my fans being upset by what they saw. But, if you’re a Mary fan, you have to know I would never allow an unfinished spot like the one you saw to go out.”
Whether there was a dream sequence or not, it would still be racist if it was racist in the first place since the song was sung in this version and would likely be the same in another version. It seems the ad does include the dream sequence.

Burger King previously said the ad was yanked due to a “music-licensing issue.” Burger King has since expanded on its explanation, telling Advertising Age that it wanted to apologize to Blige and is in the “process of re-editing the spot” to include the dream sequence.
Burger King blames a “lapse in communication” that caused the ad to air on “very limited rotation on local TV” before it was pulled.
Blige sang the song and did so in front of Burger King signs. She cashed the check. She has a right in this country to sing about almost anything she wants.

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
