Cingular Pulls Offensive Ringtone

BROWNSVILLE, Texas — Cingular Wireless LLC pulled a ringtone from its Web site Tuesday after learning that it carried a message the company called “blatantly offensive.”

“Por favor, put the oranges down and step away from the cell phone. I repeat-o, put the oranges down and step away from the telephone-o. I’m deporting you back home-o,” the voice continued.

Hispanic activists called the product racist.
