Duncan Hines is being criticized for a cupcake ad that some are calling racist. The ad, for Duncan Hines’ “Amazing Glazes,” features animated vanilla cupcakes. When the unidentified woman in the ad starts putting the chocolate glaze on them, they start to beatbox. The issue? Some say it looks a lot like the cupcakes are wearing blackface. Duncan Hines pulled the spot from YouTube.
