Dunkin' Donuts has gotten some big names, like Naomi Campbell, to endorse its yummies, and Rachael Ray just joined the club. Page Six is reporting that chef Anthony Bourdain is not pleased with Ray's massive deal with the donut maker. He said:
"She's hugely influential, particularly with children. And she's endorsing Dunkin' Donuts. It's like endorsing crack for kids."
"I'm not a very ethical guy. I don't have a lot of principles. But somehow that seems to me over the line. Juvenile diabetes has exploded. Half of Americans don't have necks. And she's up there saying, 'Eat some [bleeping] Dunkin' Donuts. You look great in that swimsuit — eat another doughnut!' That's evil."
Ray's rep responded:
"Anyone who knows Rachael and watches her on TV is aware she promotes balance and moderation, instead of living life in extremes. Her work addressing kids' and families' nutritional needs speaks for itself so we respectfully disagree with Anthony's opinion."
