A few months back, Mary J. Blige appeared in a short lived, and highly controversial advertisement for Burger King, in which she was singing about fried chicken.
The commercial was quickly labelled as racist and insensitive, and Mary J. Blige has finally spoken out in agreement.
"It was a mistake and I did it because I thought it was something that wouldn't come out like that. No one had mercy, and it's cool, it was a learning experience. It hurt my feelings, it crushed me for two days, but after those two days, I got up and I kept going. I want to apologize to everyone that was offended or thought I would do something so disrespectful to our culture. I would never do anything like that purposely."
