Mary J. Blige Addresses Burger King Ad Controversy

June 28, 2012

Yesterday afternoon, Mary J. Blige addressed her contentious Burger King ad with Hot 97's Angie Martinez. Blige apologized and described feeling hurt after the quickly-pulled ad created backlash online.

I went online to listen to the remix I did with Fat Joe and I’m looking for that. I’m looking for “Another Round,” and all I could see is Burger King, and chicken, and buffoonery...and it just broke my heart. I want to apologize to everyone that was offended or thought that I would do something so disrespectful to our culture. I would never do anything like that purposely, I thought I was doing something right so forgive me.
