Burger King has pulled its controversial ad in which Mary J. Blige waxes musical about chicken wraps — but its reasons aren't what you think, the fast food giant says.
But according to Burger King, it pulled the ad from its YouTube channel not because of the backlash but because of "a licensing issue."

The ads feature Blige on a Burger King tabletop crooning about the ingredients of the fast-food chain's crispy chicken snack wraps to the tune of her song "Don't Mind," MSNBC's The Clicker reported.
The company said it hoped to have the ad back soon but did not say whether there would be changes made to it.
The commercial is part of Burger King's ad campaign for healthier new menu items.
