Burger King is apologizing to singer Mary J. Blige and to customers for a TV advertisement featuring Blige.

The ad features Blige singing about new chicken snack wraps. The ad has triggered an intense backlash, with many in the black community calling the commercial "stereotypical."

Burger King pulled the ad Tuesday saying it was released prematurely Blige says the ad didn't come across the way it was planned.
