Earlier this week, I posted a Burger King commercial to the site that had Mary J. Blige singing her heart out for their new chicken snack wrap. And while I thought the commercial was hilarious, many folks thought the commercial was coonery at its finest. If you don't remember that Burger King post then go (here).
After all of the backlash that both Burger King and Mary J. Blige received about the commercial, Burger King decided to pull the commercial down. Burger King also released an apology to Mary J. for releasing the commercial. You can check out that statement below:
"We would like to apologize to Mary J. and all of her fans for airing an ad that was not final."
Well now, Mary J. Blige has spoken out about her part in the commercial with TMZ.com and you can check out what she had to say when you click on that "Read More" button below:
"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 go out."
"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."
Thank you Jesus that was not how the commercial was supposed to look! What were your thoughts on the commercial? I'm listening!
