Paula Deen

Kmart & Sears

Bailing Out Too

Paula Deen can't apologize enough to stop the bleeding -- Kmart and Sears are now cutting ties with her in the wake of the n-word controversy ... TMZ has learned.

Sears Holdings -- owner of Sears and Kmart stores -- tells us, "After careful consideration of all available information, we have made the decision to phase out all products tied to [Paula Deen's] brand."

But the retail giants -- which carry Deen's cookware and dishware lines -- seem to be guilty of a little fence-sitting, because they added ... "We will continue to evaluate the situation."

Yesterday Home Depot, Target, and QVC also jumped ship ... following the Food Network's lead.

What's that saying about a pound of flesh?

IN MY OPINION    

Paula should just retire while she still has money.

SHE VOTED FOR OBAMA!

Wake up people. You think the liberal agenda is going to make the world great? Well, Paula voted for "change" and she sure got it. She was tossed under the bus by those liberals she thought were so great. I hope she learned her lesson, but who knows.

Open your eyes and vote for FREEDOM! Freedom to do and SAY what you want. Come away from the dark side and take a look at real conservative principles.

I kinda feel bad for her now. I wonder if there is any way she can redeem herself.

These companies are RIDICULOUS. Bailing out on someone because of a word they said over 30 years ago, and frankly, for very good reason (gun to head during robbery). Also, if the African American community would stop using "the" word themselves, then perhaps the rest of the world would also.

This is crazy! She did something stupid 30 years ago! She made a mistake and was honest and told the truth! She didn't murder anyone! She said a bad word! How much longer is she going to be punished. How do rappers who use that word a 100 times in a song not being condemed?

Kmart & Sears have had slaves for years, they are sickening and not worthy of my dollars.

Chris brown beats women, performs at awards shows, gets radio play, continues to sell albums. Justin Bieber assaults people who take his picture, uses his security goons like his own personal gestapo, endangers the lives of people with repeated dangerous driving incidents and he wins awards, gets radio play, and sells records. Paula Deen utters the N word 20+ years ago and she is crucified like this. I don't know about society anymore.

Paula Dean is her own worst enemy. She needs to stop talking in any format/media, get through the trial and fixing the problems in her restaurants that stated this fiasco!
