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'm petitioning Walmart to remove every watermelon from their grocery section because I find that an extremely offensive racial symbol.

This is a huge overreaction by all these advertisers. Clearly most of the people forgave her. The poll they put up was like 90% pro Paula. They seem to be jumping on a bandwagon that doesn't exist

I want to address the N word that rappers often use. Little Wayne and other rappers are able to use the N word because the WHITE executives let them, Fact. All other derogatory, sexual orientation and ethnic slurs have been censored and banned by these same WHITE executives, FACT! White males are the biggest consumers of rap and the N word makes more money for these big radio stations and music companies, Fact!

65% of all commercial stations are owned by 4 companies. Everything you hear and see on radio and TV is screened and censored, FACT! Freedom of speech only applies for derogatory words on songs with the the N word. Every thing else is censored. If these WHITE executives can stop it they also can promote it. Let an artist use the word Kike, Spick, Chink or F@g and see what happens. Do you think there are no non black artist who have tried to write those type of songs? You can't be that naive and stupid. lol To illustrate my point.... someone at TMZ made the decision to allow those other derogatory words but censored F@g

She is right, everyone had said something they regretted. I have, said I am sorry to them and learned from it, but never lost my job over it.

This is ridiculous. If black people are so offended by the use of the word, they should stop using it themselves. Until then, it's open season for anyone to use. It's a word. Sticks and stones, people, sticks and stones.
