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.

Paula, you can always retire and live somewhere where your enlightened views on other races are shared....like South Africa.

All she need say--"I don't recall ever using that word".
If someone's trying to nail you, don't give them a hammer.

If this woman has a PR team, she needs to fire them and get a new team. If she doesn't have one, get one FAST.

Yeah way togo TMZ. Call paula Deen out and not your own staff. member when Rachel (sp?) said it was ok for blacks to linch George Zimmerman. Anyone dare ask her the last time she called someone a craker?

And yet, Alec Baldwin can rant on all he wants about gays, about little pigs, and what ever and he's a leftist hero. You left guys stink.

maybe there wasn't a company not selling Paula Deen cookware, does this mean her fans should check it the 99 cents stores now?

Clearly the only due diligence conducted by these companies was to read the tabloids. Anyone that read Lisa Jackson's deposition, online in its entirety, would be made immediately aware that Lisa Jackson neither saw or heard Paula Deen do or say anything racially or sexually inappropriate. All the allegations are against Bubba Hiers, Paula's brother. Sooo disappointed in my beloved Target. Ah, well.. more business for Amazon.

Congrats TMZ! You have successfully ruined another person's life!
Not sure how your people sleep at night. Or do you just dream of ways to ruin the next person you deem unworthy of your hate?
You guys are sickening and seem to enjoy it.
Bet you're all out right now rolling with pigs in mud.
