    I find the original Toyota ad more offensive.

    I can't imagine any Western raised female wanting to join ISIS. They'd have to be crazy.

    To be fair - mine was a supporting statement...that they don't have to be arab or whatever looking to be crazy.

    The lesson to be learned in all this is that before you petulantly demand (in all caps, no less) that your question be answered, you really should first make sure the answer doesn't completely undermine your argument.

    People who were offended better never read The Onion. Satire isn't your thing.

    And why did ABC News blur out the logo?

    I like anything that pisses off overly-sensitive people on the interwebs, so I voted comedy even thought it only brought me a mild smile and not a laugh.

    Because of a brand sponsor like Toyota not wanting to be associated with a terrorist group?

    Wait...what logo did they blur? Wasn't it the ISIS logo? Regardless, it was stupid. Anyone with a brain cell knew what it was supposed to be.

    I'm not saying it was smart, I'm giving a possible explanation to the question.

    Gotcha. ;) It would be interesting to know the true reason. That sounds as plausible as any.
