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."

She said that N-word, which I hate, when she was being held up in 1986. Black chefs have come out and supported her. If you fire everyone who ever said that word, then everyone would be fired(those black rappers would be the first fired)The bar should be is she prejudice now. Does she pay black workers less than whites. Does she hire whites way more than blacks, and more than the percentages in her neighborhood. This is insane.

Growing up in the south, I heard the "N" word every day, but not from white people, from black people calling each other "******". Kind of like when girls call each other "bitch". the persecution of Paula Dean is crazy. Shame on you Walmart and Food Network for your whimpy position and lack of support towards someone who made you millions. Paula isn't racist. She may be a little ditzy, but her fans love that about her. There are celebs who do much worse than say something derogatory while under durres who never face any media backlash. The politically correct card losses meaning when played in stupid situations like this. There will always be racist people of ALL races, but this is like making an example of the good kid in class the first time they make a mistake by expelling them forever. Paula says a bad word (for white people to say) and she looses everything?? Really???? The woman has black people featured on her show!

And...shame on the media for making this into such a big thing that companies are afraid of losing money over it. I hate that the media can spin a story anyway they want to make a buck...and that people pay so much attention to what the media is saying.

Bitchplease    

This is about as bad as someone saying oh we should have a nazi wedding, complete with naked tattooed Jews serving our drinks. Stupidity. She stuck her foot in her mouth, so now she has to pay the price. All her crap is ugly as hell anyway. Would have ended up in the clearance section. If you support this fool then that makes u a fool. Y'all. Might I mention she's helping kill people off everyday with her 5,000 calorie dishes too btw?

Paula Deen’s ‘I Is What I Is’ Defense Is Punchline From A Notorious Racist Joke!


She can’t catch a break.


A tearful Paula Deen went on TODAY Wednesday morning to defend herself against allegations that she’s a racist. “I is what I is and I’m not changing,” the queen of southern cuisine told host Matt Lauer.


But as RadarOnline.com has learned — whether she knew it or not — the “I is what I is” line is the punchline to a notorious racist joke titled ’Black Or White God?’


The joke, according to website LOL Jokes, goes like this:


There was a black guy and a white guy.
They were debating over whether god was white or black.
The white guy said that there was only one way to find out and that is to
pray.
So they go up on a hill and they pray, and pray, and pray.
Finally they hear a voice say, “I am what I am.”
The white guy jumps up, and says, “Aha, I told you he was white.”
The black guy jumps up and says, “What do you mean? That didn’t prove
anything.”
“Yes it did. Because if he was black he would’ve said I is what I is.”


Deen, 66, has lost her gigs with the Food Network, Smithfield Brands, Walmart and Caesars Entertainment since it emerged she admitted using the N-word in a deposition held as part of a sex and racism lawsuit.


Lisa Jackson, the former general manger of Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House in Savannah, Ga., sued Deen and her brother Earl ‘Bubba’ Hiers for $1.2 million in 2012, claiming he sexually harassed her for five years, frequently used the word n*gger, referred to President Obama as a ‘n*gger‘ and watched pornography on work computers
