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.

JC Penny is swirling the toilet bowl with market share and profit. They tried to fix it with gay which swirled the water faster and now their re-flushing. I went to one of their stores IN a mall and it looked empty, filthy and a plain mess. I won't be shopping there anymore. nor Sears or K-mart.
They're such bigots..

I do NOT feel sorry for her. She will ALWAYS be a millionaire no matter how many endorsements she has. She's had a good run.

Deen is a million-dollar cash-cow. All her franchises will fall into lock-step because they have no choice now. When things die down...Deen will come back just like Martha Stewart did. She's a "moneymaker", this is a capitalistic society. You don't cut your nose off to spite your face.

As long as black people keep callin' each other "n*ggers"...this will be a non-issue.

Who would have thought that this seemingly racist daughter of the Confederacy could have gotten so wealthy from cooking nothing but unhealthy fat pig food? She'll survive. Let her retire.

Hey JCP, when you advertise those 4th of July sales, using flags and red, white & blue, make sure you read up about things like Freedom of Speech or Freedom from Cruel and Unusual Punishment. Nothing worse than corporate hypocrites that punish truth and reward liars.

I think it wasn't the N word, but the wedding on a Plantation with a theme of the old south for her brother. Slaves, etc.
