Burger King has removed a commercial featuring Mary J. Blige singing about chicken because of licensing issues.

While the commercial was on air, the black community criticized the video saying the stereotypical.

Mary J Blige pointed out that other celebrities are advertising Burger King’s snack wraps, such as Jay Leno and Salma Hayek.

What do think about the video? Is  just business move for Mary or does the commercial put her into a racial stereotype?
