After waiting around to see which way the wind blew ... QVC -- like a lemming -- followed the rest of Paula Deen's partners and dropped the chef in the wake of the n-word scandal.

Initially, QVC refused to take a stand -- saying they were closely monitoring the situation.

Now, after just about every company connected to Deen jumped ship ... QVC has sheepishly made its move ... announcing Paula will not appear on any upcoming broadcasts ... for now.

In fact, the head of QVC released a statement saying, "Some of you may wonder whether this is a 'forever' decision – whether we are simply ending our association with Paula. We don’t think that’s how relationships work. People deserve second chances. And we always strive to do the right thing."   One question:  Huh?

For her part, Paula released her own statement regarding the QVC split, saying, "As you know, I have some important things to work on right now, both personally and professionally. And so we’ve agreed that it’s best for me to step back from QVC and focus on setting things right."

Who's next?

Typical leftists ad their "one strike and you're out" policy of attacking to destroy anyone who even reotely offends them. She made a mistake. You don't need to destroy her whole life for it. Blacks and hispanics are racist every single day, and you don't care. In fact just yesterday at the Trayvon htrial his friend was racist and indicated he was too, and no one even cared. But that double-standard is ok...................

There is always youtube or vimeo. She has enough to rent and produce at a studio and stream her show. It won't have the massive audience of QVC, but she won't fade away into obscurity either.

I got so tired of folks say well blacks and rappers say the nword all the time I guess that makes it okay for everyone to say it gtfoh,nobody should be using that word I don't give a flying crap who you are it's hurtful word.i do think its bit overkill on Paula Deen she said sorry she admitted it when she did not even have to

Obviously ...there is MUCH more to this story than Paula just using the N word 30 years ago .........or these sponsors would not be dropping her like this

I woke up this morning to see that QVC has taken a step back from supporting Paula Deen what a bunch of chicken S%@&S. Well I have shopped there for over 25 years and I will be taking a step back and will start shopping at HLN the way they handled this was sneaky they should have been up front instead of cowering in the background!!!
