Mary J Blige Burger King Commercial; Paid $2 Million to Sing About Fried Chicken

By Staff – 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.”
