For the very first time, Mary J Blige is speaking out about the infamous Burger King Chicken Wrap commercial. Though she reportedly got $2million dollars for the spot, the humiliation and backlash she got from the mix-up with Burger King, she was crushed.
Mary J Blige told the Radio Personality, “I would never just bust out singing about chicken and chicken wings. It hurt my feelings and crushed me for two days.
“I understood the laughter and the jokes and the stuff that was happening – you’re supposed to do that when something like that happens – but the thing that hurt me is when people were starting to say vicious, negative things that didn’t have (anything) to do with that, she said. “It exposed everyone and everything in my life and showed me who my friends are.”
