Days after Burger King pulled a controversial ad that featured Mary J. Blige crooning for chicken, the R&B superstar released a statement to TMZ to address her fans. “I agreed to be a part of a fun and creative campaign that was supposed to feature a dream sequence. Unfortunately, that’s not what was happening in that clip.” Mary also says, “I understand my fans being upset by what they saw. But, if you’re a Mary fan, you have to know I would never allow an unfinished spot like the one you saw go out.”
The clip in question features Mary J. Blige singing about fried chicken wraps for the fast food giant, and received heavy criticism before the spot was eventually pulled from the internet.
