Paula Deen
's officially the least popular kid on the playground ... JCPenney just severed ties with the celebrity chef in the wake of her n-word scandal.

A rep for the department store released a statement today, saying, "We can confirm that jcpenney has decided to discontinue selling Paula Deen branded merchandise."

JCP had sold Deen-brand kitchen products ... which is good news for Martha Stewart.

The retail giant is the latest to run for the hills -- Target, Home Depot, QVC, Kmart, Sears, and Walmart (to name a few) have already dumped Paula.

This will have a far-reaching impact on all the businesses that make and distribute Paula Deen merchandise, not just the retailers.

reverese racism at it's height. This is absolutely ridicuolus and shameful of everyone. So if she rapped the word or was black herself it would be ok right? Such a double standard. If your black and call me ni***r it's awsome becasue i'm a pimp with my hoes, but if you're white I'm offended. Now who's really being the NI***RS!

Shes getting everything she deserves. It not just about what she said 20 years ago, its her "i is who i is" attitude and refusal to change. She made it worse with her BS "apologies".

Her foodnetwork contract is running out on Sunday. On Monday I expect an announcement by Oprah, a black woman, to stand by her old friend Paula Deen and welcoming Paula to her OWN Network.

Oprah not having commented at all says to me that there's something brewing in the background.

Oprah announcing that she's known Paula for years and that she's not racist can turn public perception for PD. And it can turn OWN's problems around due to all the newly attracted PD fans.

And all those retailers, that are acting like lemmings are so going to kick themselves, when Paula is going to rise beyond what she's been

Just my opinion

Firstly, The Confederacy of Evil ("Corporate America", their well-funded and subservient Politicians, most within the State-serving Print/Broadcast "Media", and
their collaborating "Religious" "Leaders") is FALLING.

TMZ is the PC police… Generating stories on a biased view to create a negative image or to transform minds and ideology.. Paula Deen, Michael Jackson, Chris Brown, etc… Every story is told and sold to you to form an opinion (mostly a negative one).

Now they'll have to find another spokesmodel for their "Fat, Frumpy, and Flatulent" clothing line. It's a line of designer overalls with a flap in the back to release sudden farts.
