Singing Cupcakes in black face, I don't find it racist but then again that is Me. I think it is in poor taste, but not racist.
Using the name Hip Hop cupcakes is in poor poor taste.
I think it's Old school promotion, coming up with an ad campaign that is controversial is one thing.
Using images that you know will cause drama is a cop out!! I think its harder to come up with a edgy yet tasteful ad campaign, because that would take creatively......
Duncan Hines #Epic Fail!!!!
At least you were smart enough not to go nation wide with that campaign, only Youtube. And you pulled the ad off youtube......
But I guess the purpose of the Ad still hit its mark.
We are now talking about Racist Hip Hop cupcakes by Duncan Hines.
