1/25/2011 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Flavor Flav loves his fried chicken so much -- he put his own GIANT face right on the menu at his new joint in Iowa.

TMZ has obtained photos of Flav at his new "Flav's Fried Chicken" restaurant in Clinton, Iowa yesterday -- where he debuted his eye-popping yellow and orange menus ... and his self-indulgent sign out front. 
 
So we gotta ask ...

You'd think they would update the building before opening. The place still looks like Long John Silvers which is right next door with KFC...

What's the problem? KFC does the same thing...so a black man shouldn't show his face on his business?

He is one of the ugliest people in show biz. Looking at his face will cause the people to lose their appetite. Bad call with the face on the menu. HA HA

The ONLY thing shameful about this new business adventure is TMZ's negative portrayal and the comment "the ad that set America back 60 years". TMZ is so awash in its far left, California, political correctness they can only think in racial terms. Flava wishes to use his image and reputation to promote his new fanchise. There is nothing unusual about doing that. If Flava were an Asian or a caucasian,TMZ would never have taken notice.Its TMZ's negative portrayal of this ad that smacks of racism. They are associating FRIED CHICKEN and BLACKS in a negative light. Sickening.

The ONLY thing that is shameful about this new business venture is TMZ's calling it "the ad that set America back 60 years". Shame on you Harvey.You are so drowning in your far,left wing, California,political correctness you can only think in terms of race. Flava is opening a new business and he wishes to use his image and reputation to advertise and promote said business. There is nothing abnormal about that and nothing that "sets America back 60 years". Its TMZ who put FRIED CHICKEN and Blacks together to make a negative commentary.If Flava was white Harvey would never have noticed this ad. Sickening.

Typical white racist--to make a racist connection between a smiling black man and fried chicken--that's on you jew. So what about Colonel Sanders' face on adverts for KFC. Please--you set American back with your idiotic web site and infantile staff. . . .Go to hell and suck on a bagel.
