Dunkin’ apologizes

 

BANGKOK – Dunkin’ Donuts has apologized for the “insensitivity” of an advertising campaign in Thailand featuring a woman in blackface makeup to promote a new chocolate flavored doughnut.

The Dunkin’ Donuts franchise in Thailand came under criticism Friday after Human Rights Watch called the advertisements “bizarre and racist.”

The company’s chief executive in Thailand initially defended the campaign, but the US headquarters quickly followed up with an apology. (AP)
