A video for Duncan Hines’ Amazing Glazes has angered viewers for its depiction of cupcakes in black face. Facing criticism, Duncan Hines pulled the video from YouTube, but Eater National managed to get a copy of it. View it and give us your thoughts.

I could totally understand the racial controversy here. What about all the White, Hispanic, and Bi-racial Rappers out there like: Eminem, the Beastie Boys, Aesop Rock, Big Pun, Pit Bull, and Fat Joe. All Duncan Hines had to do introduce the vanilla glaze alongside the chocolate glaze and vary the size of lips on their cupcakes. What were they thinking?! Had they spent a little more time on market research, they wouldn’t have lost so much money and now… potential customers!
