Mary J. Says Burger King Chicken Ad Was “Unfinished”

(AllHipHop News) Mary J. Blige has released a statement explaining a controversial chicken at that hit the Internet this week.

According to the “Queen of Hip-Hop Soul,” the Burger King ad was released prematurely.

“I agreed to be a part of a fun and creative campaign that was supposed to feature a dream sequence,” Mary J. Blige told TMZ.com. “Unfortunately, that’s not what was happening in that clip.”

What was happening in the clip was labeled stereotypical by a variety of critics and fans.

Mary J. Blige was reportedly paid $2 million to be a part of the ad campaign, which featured her singing about chicken to the tune of her song “Don’t Mind.”

AllHipHop.com’s illCommunity reacted to the commercial, which was a hotly debated subject.

The controversy surrounding Mary’s commercial for the “BK Chicken Snack Wrap” was enough for Burger King to pull the video from YouTube and apologize.

“We would like to apologize to Mary J. and all of her fans for airing an ad that was not final,” the company said in a statement.

Mary J. Blige also apologize to her fans.

“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.”

  • Nobody told you to sign that contract and deposit that check, though.

      If they really took one thing and made it something else then she can hardly be faulted for it tho

      • You can flip it any way you want to, but she clearly made a conscious decision, a $2 mil decision, to sing about “crispy chicken and fresh lettuce” for the folks at BK. She needs to gracefully take that “L” and keep it movin’.

      Seriously though, she’s the one that started it, by commenting on it, and probably tryin to lie to us about it wasn’t finished… i don’t believe that… she would be suin with the quickness…! If she doesn’t sue, she lyin, with all my respect.

      Really, she’s a grown woman and shouldn’t have to justify those type of choices… i would give a fukkless about what these n!ggaz saying over me pocketing 2mill$

      …and her career is behind her, with all respect due, not putting the sis down
