Racist cupcake commercial raises questions

Dear White People:

I'm pullin' so hard for you all. I want this reconcilliation thing to happen. Being hostile all the time is exhausting. I thought we might be united via Justin Beiber. Then you go and pull a stunt like this.

And sully the name of cupcakes too?

Food manufacturer Duncan Hines has found itself in some hot water with a promo for their microwaveable Amazing Glazes. The ad in question was called 'Hip-Hop Cupcakes' and features a set of vanilla cupcakes that get topped with a chocolate glaze and then morph into cartoon characters that clearly resemble racist minstrel imagery.
