A new ad from Dunkin’ Donuts’ Thai division has the American pastry-maker on  the defensive and critics in America crying racism.

The Los Angeles Times and the Associated Press report that Dunkin’ Donuts  Thailand recently released an advertisement for the company’s “Charcoal Donut,” which displays a young woman wearing pink lipstick and complete blackface  makeup. The woman is holding up a partially eaten chocolate donut next to text  that reads: “Break every rule of deliciousness.”
