Every single retailer on the face of the earth ...

Has dumped Paula Dean. Ok obviously I'm exaggerating but serious, every major retailer has officially dumped her. Some I didn't even know had her product.

I have never seen backlash like this in my entire life and there have been worse scandals than this.

Yesterday or Today Dane Cook tweeted "Paula Deen was just somehow fired from the first job she held her freshman year of high school"

But Paula Deen didn't really do anything to be punished for.

Oh Jeez.. So what?! Everyone is racist in someway. 

You don't like blacks you are, you don't like whites you are, you make fun of fat people you are.. 

Quoting AjCeCeMom:

She's a bit of a racist apparently.


Quoting ajrjj05:

huh?

Quoting illinoismommy83:

She has free will and openly expresses it behind closed doors in a situation that does not involve the general public. 

Quoting ajrjj05:

IMO they are all doing it to try to cover their butts because she fits the stereotype of a racist.  It is disgusting as to what so many others did and they were forgiven.  Michael Vick and his dog fighting, Martha Stuart and her insider trading... I am sure there are many others... Mel Gibson and racial slurs about Jews.... hmmm... I could go on but I think you get the picture.


I feel sorry for her, well, not really sympathy... more like empathy.  She apologized. It was how many years ago??  Seriously people, get over it.  How many people out there are able to honestly say that they have never said something that they regretted or used a racial slur??  To be punished this severely because of comments made over twenty years ago is just plain sick.  I am hoping that there is a network out there that is smart enough to look passed the BS and take her on and give her a show.  She worked hard to get where she is....


People need to get over themselves and move on. There are more important issues going on in the world other than an old southern woman using the "N" word.....
