Paula Deen

Dropped by Walmart

Another one bites the dust ... Paula Deen has just been dropped by Walmart.

The retail giant just released a statement, saying, "We are ending our relationship with Paula Deen Enterprises and we will not place new orders beyond those already committed."

Walmart is Paula's latest business partner to sever ties with the celebrity chef in the wake of her n-word scandal ... a list that includes the Food Network, the Caesars casino company, and the ham company Smithfield.

Deen appeared on "Today" this morning, offering a tearful apology -- saying, "If there's anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back ... please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me."

I find Walmart firing her laughable. Their Board of Directors probably say the WORD many times a day considering where they live.

Ratings Needed    

There is a huge double standard on the Food Network...
"If the Food Network is going to fire Paula Deen then they also need to fire Chef Malto Mario because he had to pay out $6 million. They should also fire Anne Burrell who was sued for sexual discrimination; they would also need to fire CHEF CAT CORA WHO WAS ARRESTED FOR DUI FOR HAVING A BLOOD ALCOHOL 3 TIMES THE LEGAL LIMIT AND SCREAMED PROFANITIES AT PEOPLE. DINNER IMPOSSIBLE'S ROBERT IRVINE WAS CAUGHT LYING ABOUT HIS BACKGROUND CLAIMING HE USED TO COOK FOR THE ROYAL FAMILY; IRON CHEF BOBBY FLAY WAS ALSO SUED AND SETTLED FOR ALMOST $1 MILLION BECAUSE HE TOO KEPT TIPS FROM HIS EMPLOYEES and cheated on both his wives, IRON CHEF MORIMOTO WAS ALSO SUED FOR SKIMMING TIPS AND WAGES FROM HIS EMPLOYEES; Martha Stewart went to jail for insider trading; FOOD NETWORK CHEF GEOFFREY ZAKARIAN FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY TO AVOID A LAWSUIT - 152 OF HIS DISGRUNTLED WORKERS SUED HIM; Chef Juan Carlos Cruz who hired a homeless man to kill his wife." AND Walmart sells rap 'music' that has every filty word in the lyrics including the horrible 'n' word, the 'f' word, the 'c' word, the 'b'word VIOLENCE TOWARD WOMEN & Walmart supports them. It's amazing how many people are going to boycott not only the food network now Walmart.

IF there is truly "freedom of speech" in America - it should be criminal for these companies to drop Paula Deen over saying ONE WORD. Regardless of what word or when it was said.

I don't think many of the Blacks really felt beat down by this situation. The problem now is to cut the interviews and stop trying to imitate ebonics while doing so. Many people have not read, or just ignored posts that explain that the N word a racist use is not generally the N word rappers use wwith their friends etc. Once people can understand that then we can move on and stop accusing blacks of things you have no knowledge of. This mess with Paula has gone to far! Most of the blacks along with myself, do not feel she should lose her business. Non of us are perfect.
