In the commercial, the Food Network personality was wearing a scarf that a Fox News commentator likened to a kiffiyeh, a Middle Eastern garb that is "popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos," according to a report on MSNBC.

Dunkin's SVP/communications Margie Myers issued a statement saying the scarf "was selected by a stylist for the advertising shoot. Absolutely no symbolism was intended."
