Urban Legends and Hoaxes:
The Dunkin Donuts Hoax

You would think the events of 9/11 would have drawn people together, but some nasty hoaxters took the opportunity to pick on the donut chain. Here is the message that was sent out, which is completely untrue.

Attention all Americans:

Boycott Dunkin Donuts!!

In Cedar Grove, NJ, a customer saw the owner of a Dunkin Donuts store burn
the U.S. flag. In another Dunkin Donuts store in Little Falls, a customer
saw a U.S. flag on the floor with Arabic writing all over it.

We are starting a nationwide boycott of all Dunkin Donuts. Please make
sure this gets passed on to all fellow Americans during this time of
tragedy. We Americans need to stick together and make these horrible
people understand what country they are living in and how good they used
to have it when we supported them. Numerous fastfood companies are at
Ground Zero, giving away free food to volunteers. Where is Dunkin Donuts
in all of this?

Boycott Dunkin Donuts!!!!!! Pass it on.............................

If you get this one, warn whoever sent it to you to stop distributing it.
