Muslim Organization Touts Chewing Gum as Cure-All for Islamophobia
by Mariam Khan
In its first satirical attempt to challenge anti-Muslim bigotry, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, released a 1-minute ad Wednesday poking fun at discriminatory interactions many Muslims in the country regularly face. The organization claims that it has developed a "cure" for this in the form of a chewing gum called ISLAMOPHOBIN.
Who, exactly, is the ad aimed at?
"I think the answer is very, very simple. When it comes to irresponsible statements against Muslims, it's Donald Trump and several of the GOP candidates," CAIR's Executive Director Nihad Awad said in an interview with ABC News.
