Its not quite the same as finding out that the most recognizable face of your company has been arrested for pedophilia, but Dunkin Donuts has to be rethinking its marketing strategy after spokesman Snoop Dogg spent the last 48 hours threatening CBS news anchor Gayle King and calling for the release of convicted sex offender Bill Cosby.
In January one month after Dunkin Donuts CMO resigned to pursue the next opportunity the coffee chain launched a national ad campaign featuring Snoop Dogg. Now, less than a month later, it has to make a decision about whether to suspend the campaign entirely.
Those of us old enough to have owned The Chronic on CD marveled at the idea that Snoop Dogg had evolved to the point that he would be the star of a mainstream advertising campaign. And it turns out maybe we were right. I think Snoop himself said it best on Gin & Juice: With so much drama in the L-B-C, Its kinda hard bein Snoop D-O-double-G.
Yo betta buy a do-nut o’ we comin’ fo’ yo
Have Tostitos and Dunkin Donuts commented on this ?— Scott (@LibertyScott63) February 8, 2020
Dunkin Donuts must be proud.— Scott (@LibertyScott63) February 8, 2020
Dunkin Donuts doesn't give a damn what a Hillary Clinton operative thinks because losing Snoop Dogg would lose them a LOT more money— Mike (@CBerthelot227) February 8, 2020
If Dunkin Donuts take down Snoop's commercial, I will boycott them. You people always want a black person to lose money but had this been a white guy saying this, you would he silent as a damn tomb. Go play in the sandbox and let black people handle our own.— Elizabeth (@GentleScorpion) February 8, 2020
Susan, He is despicable . I call on his sponsors such as Dunkin Donuts and The General auto insurance to cancel him as a spokesperson. A guy that uses this kind of language and threatening remarks should have to answer for his actions— RLK (@RLK15873444) February 8, 2020
How do companies who have Snoop Dogg as a spokesperson such as adidas, Burger King, Old Navy, Uber, EA Sports, T-Mobile, Hims, Tostitos, Overstock and Dunkin Donuts justify him making public threats to Gayle King? https://t.co/VBJnN5pHjz— Paul Sacca (@Paul_Sacca) February 8, 2020
Lay down with dogs...
Ya hire Snoop Dogg you get what you get...and you damn well deserve it good and hard.Morons.
I think I would have been sitting calmly at my desk with a handgun while warning Snoop Dogg that I was armed and ready to defend myself and those near me.
And if Dogg replied, “I ain’t afraid of your m****f****ing gun!!!”, that would be icing on the cake.
I love their vanilla cream filled but at a little over a dollar each it is a rare treat for me. Now I have an excuse for not spending my money.
With my mind on my money
And my money on my mind
I don’t get why Mr.Dogg wants a convicted sex offender released..?
Does he believe he is innocent?
Or, does he just miss his jello pudding commercials?
In case some folks didn’t bother to read the articles or follow the links, Mr. Dogg was sticking up for Kobe Bryant’s family in his own vernacular, after Gayle King brought up the dismissed Kobe Bryant rape charge of well over a decade ago in an interview about his death. Other social media posts piled on, including, somehow, Bill Cosby, who somehow posted to Instagram from jail.
Mr. Dogg then posted a pic of King with Harvey Weinstein to show her hypocracy, and how black celebrities like Cosby, Bryant and Michael Jackson get smeared unfairly.
Somewhere along the line, Susan Rice decided to chime in posted publicly that Mr. Dogg should back the f*** off King.
The lede for the article buried all of that and spun it as though the real story was about how Dunkin donuts had a huge problem on its hands. That’s some fake news right there.
Nike should hire him.
What gets into the minds of these nitwits? Why would ANY responsible person put this mutt up as the public face of a company? Snoop Dog REALLY? Moronic!
Have we reached a point, where rap is mainstream, and rap “stars” such as Snoop Doggy Dog are considered good for advertising?
Next up, “stars” of the pornography business, perhaps? Where do we draw the line?
Did I miss something, is rap now considered ok and not a fringe element of music and culture?
Susan Rice has already clapped back and Snoop has yet to respond.
Next up, stars of the pornography business, perhaps?
Stormy Daniels and a cream filled long john perhaps?
One of my sons, gave another son, Snoop Dogs cookbook....From crook to cook. It is actually a great cookbook. Really enjoyed, the section on a well stocked pantry.
Companies used to go for clean-cut, all-American spokes models. Now they go for edgy and it puts the brand at risk.
Using a foul-mouth, pot-smoking rapper was a very bad idea.
I imagine the recipes are a lot like the "Rasta Gourmet" from Friday's....
