Paula Deen

TV chef Paula Deen is in hot water once again — this time for posting a photo of her son Bobby wearing brownface on her social media page.

Deen, 68, posted a photo of herself dressed as the late comedienne/actress Lucille Ball alongside her 45-year-old son, Bobby, who wore brownface makeup to portray Lucille’s husband, Ricky Ricardo (played by Desi Arnaz, Jr.) on TV’s popular sitcom I Love Lucy.

Deen captioned the photo: “Lucyyyyyyy! You got a lot of esplainin’ to do! #TransformationTuesday.”

She deleted the image and the tweet after the furious backlash erupted on Twitter.com.

The Food Network star was unceremoniously dumped by a slew of sponsors after she was exposed as an unrepentant racist 2 years ago.

Food Network was the first to cut ties with the celebrity chef in 2013 when a former employee accused her of regularly uttering racial slurs.

Lisa T. Jackson, a former manager of Deen’s popular Savannah, Georgia restaurants, sued Deen and her brother for sexual harassment.

Jackson, who is black, accused Deen of using the N-word in racist jokes and for creating a hostile work environment for black employees.

Deen later admitted using the N-word in court but she denied making racist jokes. She issued a tearful, mascara-stained apology video after nearly all of her sponsors ran for the hills.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Ya’ll couldnt even match the hands…

    • Chitsngiggles

      Its like the folks with the Confederate Flag. They really believe its about heritage. Its like they don’t understand what the rest of the sane world is trying to explain to their ignorant asses.

    • Chitsngiggles

      Why can’t WE unite like that? What’s wrong with us?

    • L.T.L. Since 2007

      Who’s surprised?

    • Femme404

      They play dumb.Paula Deen has no concept of what she is doing. She has money on the line. She wouldn’t be risking it if she thought what she was doing was wrong.

    • iWasteTime

      She was just on the Chew… smh!
      She just don’t care… once a racist; always a racist

    • Femme404

      We are apathetic….we’ve been fighting a helluva lot longer.

    • Rayne

      I feel ya. But you can’t explain ignorance to ignorant folks. And I’ve tried and gave up.

    • NSYDEOUT

      Please, this stale saltine cracker of a racist knows that she’s a racist. She can’t hide it because for her, it’s normal life; normal thoughts and actions . FEMME404, you quoted her best: ” I is what is.” Been done with bish.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Truthfully, because we too busy fighting and killing each other. We are too busy worrying about who will lead the march and I don’t want to follow that one instead of just banning together and get the ish done.

    • Zettai

      Paula’s like The Mask… “SOMEbody STOP meh!”

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      So now is her son’s show gonna be cancelled as well? I’ll wait… :tea:

    • I want to be free

      This is why a lot of celebrities have PR and social media people that handle their accounts. Someone really needs to school ole girl. This might be the nail in her coffin.

    • Femme404

      Have I ever told you how much I love your name? Well, I do. Its adorable!. 🙂

    • Chitsngiggles

      +1000 or we worried about our goodt job. Don’t want our bosses finding out we are fighting the good fight. Don’t want to offend nobody. Or we too busy in church waiting/ praying for some miracle to happen. We will be stuck here if we don’t change our habits and the way we think. AND PICK UP A HISTORY BOOK.

    • Chitsngiggles

      Thanks hun!

    • Femme404

      It happens to every group of people who fight for centuries. The apathy is passed down. its happening to Europeans right now. They don’t want to fight ISIS. They want to sit on their asses and eat scones and drink latte’s.

    • Phillybruh

      The women who sued her was not black.

    • Femme404

      The Avi too…

    • Chitsngiggles

      Shyt we ignorant too. Wasting our goodt food stamps celebrating the 4th like that holiday is for us. I don’t think black people understand we wasn’t free during that time. Fug we popping firecrackers for. How pop fire at these crackers….

    • Chitsngiggles

      I have a bachelor’s in PR. I’m available for hire. But not for Paula **** ass though.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      I agree..Its a “things have always been like this” mentality. The rate or white on white crime is almost the same as black on black crime

    • Femme404

      Stooooop…I celebrate the fourth because I love my country..good and bad…

    • Letmecommentbeforeicant

      I need her to choke on a recipe that she stole from our people.

    • Rayne

      I appreciate your honesty and all..saying your people ignorant. Me and mines are well read. That takes a lot of guts to admit. Loooll 🙂 🙂

    • Femme404

      And once you make a little money and see a little progress…*shrug* but now the scab has been ripped off…

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Don’t bite.

    • Zettai

      Thank you! I am acquainted with two older white women from Small Town USA that are like this. One used the word “colored” during conversation and kept talking like it was nothing while I tried to pick my jaw off the floor. The other, after praising a (white) couple for adopting a child (from another race), shook their head and said, “But that baby’s so dark…”

      I don’t even bother arguing with these ignoramuses. I can’t tell someone two plus two is four when the only number they know and think they need to know is five. I think Oprah made a good point when she said the older, more racist generation needs to die. Nothing will ever remove the stain of racism from the US but I think that’ll help.

    • Femme404

      Lol…

    • Zettai

      SMH DEAD

    • Chitsngiggles

      I hate to say it, but I’m gonna say it anyway. Until black people realize we existed before the Bible, then we gone always be in the position we are in. We had Kingdoms and were kings and kings before that book, but you can’t get one black person to believe that. If I say the story of Jesus was told before, I get looked at like I’m the devil. If I say the only book massa DID allow us to read was the Bible is the reason we are so attached I’m crazy. I get tired of telling people WE are the chosen ones. Its like talking on deaf ears. We have to fight back and that might mean DEATH, but we have to do it. /rant

    • Letmecommentbeforeicant

      I don’t want to go into how the slave mentality is still driven into our minds even though we weren’t around when slavery was going on. But, I feel thats a part of it.

    • http://www.mediakraze.me/ Kristi Luv

      You People are too sensitive, i swear…lol.
      i love me some Paula

    • Chitsngiggles

      I’m not ignorant. At All. But a lot of black people are ignorant to their history and to not admit that is the problem. We educate our immediate family, but what about the community as a whole?

    • Zettai

      At least in the US, when it comes to a Latino cause it doesn’t seem like it matters whether you are a light or dark Latino or whether you are a gay or straight Latino. Unfortunately, colorism and sexual orientation continues to divide blacks.

    • Femme404

      I prefer my white people educated, citified, and adjusted to an urban environment. I can’t do these country backwoods pinks outside of the city. I try to keep my interactions with the ones in Atlanta.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      mental slavery is a hell of a thing.

    • Chitsngiggles

      But that money spent on food and clothes could actually have an impact on white America. What if Essence moved the festival to Juneteenth weekend instead of the 4th. That would be a powerful message. But I’m sleep though.

    • Femme404

      I don’t understand what you mean.

    • Femme404

      Bit?

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Agreed, in 2015 we still having the light skin/dark skin battle.

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      …and she probably loves you too. Bless your heart.

    • I want to be free

      Lol and I don’t blame you one bit.

    • Chitsngiggles

      Do you realize how much money black people spent last weekend in NOLA to celebrate a holiday in which we were still slaves? Millions of dollars was in NOLA this weekend. Most of it sponsored by white corporations. What if we forced that for Juneteenth instead. So that money spent can actually mean something.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Its apple and Oranges to me. I am American period. Every country has its stains but that doesn’t mean i shouldn’t have pride in my soil.

    • Femme404

      I agree and disagree. A white man using the Bible as a tool of oppression doesn’t take away its validity. If I used food to overfeed you that wouldn’t make the food evil.

    • Letmecommentbeforeicant

      Let them know!

    • I want to be free

      You need to share that with Essence. I think it’s a great idea.

    • KDub

      Nah. It aint. Nail in coffin for her. She DGAF

    • Chitsngiggles

      Pride in a holiday where you still considered chattel? They actually used to beat slaves in CELEBRATION of Independence day…. But keep barbequing and popping firecrackers…

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      A few things. I was extreemly glad that the words “true Jews” were not included in what you had to say. Thank God. SO I can take you serious. Second, you are right, however, if people are not ready, then they are not ready. And on top of that, a lot of us are very happy to keep blaming the white man. And really, at some point, when is it our own fault….ijs

    • Femme404

      HAHHAAA! @Chicken George!

    • Chitsngiggles

      The yuppies are racist too. They are worst to me. They smile in your face and call you a n-word when they get home. At least down south, you know who is calling you one. No milky waters there.

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      Yes, BUT there were free blacks during this time as well, so….and nothing is wrong with celebrating independence day.

    • Chitsngiggles

      You couldn’t pay me. I’d spit on that bish.

    • Letmecommentbeforeicant

      Hopefully you’re spamming, but I’ll give my time to comment since I don’t have anything else to do. Sounding like Ruckus.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      I have a solider deployed right now…A black man who chose to defend this country as a WHOLE not just “white” America…I have pride not bc of 200 years ago but bc of today.

    • I want to be free

      She might not GAF but her sponsors (if she has any left) and network do. One time was enough for them then you do something else again? I used to sporadically look at her show but after the N word incident you couldn’t get me to watch even if she were the only show on tv.

    • Femme404

      Sho’ll stole half that sh*t. You beat me to it.

    • Zettai

      I don’t care if they’re dumb or from the middle of nowhere as long as they’re not ignorant. Unfortunately ignorance is too easy to find no matter what color you are SMH

    • Chitsngiggles

      We had the land and they had the Bible, we closed our eyes to pray and when we opened them they had the land and we still clinging to the Bible….I love God, but I will not be sleep anymore, even if that means challenging King James version of the Bible. His version ain’t the real deal no ways.

    • Femme404

      Most white people who live in urban areas like NY, Atl, San Fran, Chicago… are educated and use to being around diverse groups of people.

      what station?

    • Femme404

      My take on the Bible is, as with everything else, take the meat and leave the bone. I’m a Christian, the Old Testament is for historical understanding of the New Testament. That is all. However, Proverbs is outstanding. The Bible is not and was never intended to be a historical tome of the world.

      Hint: The true answers lie with Paul.

    • KDub

      Cosign. Bc it was OBVIOUS she wasn’t magically gonna STOP being a racist. So…what we supposed to do about ONE old yt racist hoe…when there are hundreds of Paula’s in the next county over from me? Just cause Paula on the TV….we supposed to do…??

    • KDub

      Less than 10% of em here was free in 1776.

      Yes some were in Revolutionary War.

    • Femme404

      Some were free some weren’t. Fighting, for those who weren’t free was the way in which they bought their freedom.

      So this photo is from 2011?!?!? Man…

    • Chitsngiggles

      And I don’t think many masters was freeing slaves on GP. Slaves might have ran away and got free or some kind of way bought their freedom, but wasn’t too many of them issuing freedom papers back then.

    • Femme404

      I forgave them a long time ago. I would’ve never made it out of college with my degree had I not.

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      I am speaking to the point where you told me that not one black person was free in 1776. That is all. I do believe I said you were correct with something else you said down yonder, about us coming together.

    • KDub

      Naw. It was some free niggas running round in 1776. And before. Fought for both sides. Most were Patriots tho.

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      SHe can Nae Nae, clap her hands, and she thinks she can dance. I’m trying to teach her animal sounds and where her nose is.

    • KDub

      You say that often.

    • <3 LoveDreamLive <3

      I see Trump & her having a good ole business relationship…

    • Guess Who

      SMH

    • KDub

      Complicated or not, some black Americans find reason to celebrate the holiday.

      In a Washington Times’ op-ed, Stacy Swimp notes that at least 5,000 black men fought for the Continental Army against the British, men who believed that freedom from Britain would ultimately result in their freedom from slavery. Swimp also names Black founding fathers he believes should be remembered on the 4th, like Crispus Attucks, Peter Salem, and Salem Poor.

      And he points out that while slaves weren’t free at the time of the declaration, it is as a result of that document that every American, under the U.S. Constitution, is equally guaranteed individual freedom.

    • Chitsngiggles

      YOU BETTER TELL IT! The syht I’m going through cause these white men don’t want to see me with education. They have done all they could to put me out and flunk me. But I still bounce back every semester. They always smiling in my face talking about its nice to have you back. Yeah until its time to grade me and you know I’m one of the smartest in this class. Urban white folk are the worst.

    • Femme404

      Every black person didn’t have a master. Look at the guy on 12 years a slave…

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      gosh I’m tickled at this!
      *dabs at eyes* lol!

    • Chitsngiggles

      That wasn’t in 1776 either. And you see they still MADE his ass one. Freedom don’t mean shyt.

    • Femme404

      They STOLE him…lol

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      Thanks Nancy! I tell her every day she is such a pretty girl, but mommy wants her to be smart, because just being pretty is not going to get it. I know she has zero idea of what i am talking about, but I need her to learn it early. SO even if I have to repeat it from now, I will.

      Yawn….who cares

      that’s awesome Keya :hug: Juju is blessed to have you as her mama :hug: :snot:

    • Chitsngiggles

      They thought by fighting they’d be set free. similar to these uppity negros we have today. If I act white, talk white, look and dress white I’d be accepted. Smh.

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      It is sad. But just like people breed hate and racism, we breed that shyt in our communities. We need to change, and a lot of us don’t want to change. *Disclaimer* By “Us and We” I do not mean me. I am speaking in general.

    • KDub

      Some actually were freed by fighting.

      Peter Salem. There were others.

    • Chitsngiggles

      Exactly. If we cant come together and boycott ONE holiday, how are we suppose to revolutionize. That starts with sacrifice. When I told my husband I wasn’t celebrating shyt this weekend I meant it. You will not take any of OUR coins and contribute to shyt about this holiday. Go over your mama house and eat her nasty cooking. I meant that too.

      What is “white”? And when did they corner the market on anything? If I wear J-Crew and perm my hair I’m white? Or do I just like they sh*t?

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Lol I caught KDub, I caught it.

    • KDub

      I sound white. Not bc I want to be accepted. It’s a regional dialect. NakeyaJ has heard me. Aroth. Just Looking. Plenty of folks from here.

    • Chitsngiggles

      Never mind hunny….continue doing you. And yes, they have ALL the markets. Tell me what markets do we own?

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      We did some on the Tyga post.

    • Femme404

      That’s not what I meant..but like you said continue doing you.

    • Chitsngiggles

      Using correct English isn’t talking white. That’s not what I meant…Ie sigh

      DONE WITH YOU

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      Welp, I will be honest. ANy chance I get to be with my family for a BBQ or whatever I do it. Mind you, they are not from America, so the 4th of July don’t mean that much to them. And it’s very nice that you are sticking to your guns. However, I don’t believe I want to down other people who want to celebrate this holiday. I enjoy the fireworks. And the jerk chicken at the family bbq.

    • Chitsngiggles

      Ha! I’m done. Ya’ll do ya’ll.

    • KDub

      Not everyone who is black wants to boycott the 4th of July. Just because YOU want to do that… it’s unfair to expect others to do so. We celebrate our family reunion on the 4th of July for about the past 40 years.

      And we are directly descendant from the biggest racist family from the state of Alabama.

      My last name is Wallace. As in Gov George Wallace.

      So we should boycott the 4th of July…why again?

    • KDub

      I just said this

    • Hmmm~?

      Who CARES? I’m so sick of people with this mentality. Slavery is in the PAST. July 4th is a time of celebration for every American citizen, regardless of race. You people need to have several seats with this ish.

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      OUT! Just get out!! lmao.

    • Chitsngiggles

      Look to each is own. I’m just saying in order for us to make change, we have to stop celebrating with the white man. I don’t know. Change the date of the reunion. We have stand for something Dub. That’s all I’m saying.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Didn’t we boycott Black Friday or does that not matter?

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      RUDE…..HAHAHA

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      well dayum Dubb! (yall got any lily yt cousins that attend the re-une?) I’m a tad fascinated by this :popcorn:

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Who is Who..#messy

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      I’m trying. I want her to be better than me. Her brother too.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      I shall not say.. Also I was speaking for myself and not the masses. I love engaging dialogue like the next but when it gets to the point of overkill….

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      You was thinking it.

    • Chitsngiggles

      I don’t celebrate no damn black Friday. I will do Thanksgiving because I love to cook. Although that’s bullcrap too. If I had my choice, I wouldn’t celebrate shyt but birthdays, and anniversaries. And please don’t get me started on Christmas. I fight every year with my husband. I say no gifts, let’s take a trip. He want gifts for the kids. I just stay sleep they are done.

    • KDub

      We are not changing the date of our family reunion.

      We indeed celebrated directly with the white man.

      My aunt husband. He is white.

      My cousin brung his new white wife and she pregnant.

      My damn other cousin has been going with the same white man since they were in HS and got 4 lil half breed kids we love as a result.

      My own great nephew has a white grandma.

      Good day to you.

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      I for damn sure was. I was over it. You extra mad about the 4th of July….man please. WHat are you currently doing other than not buying a flag, to better our community….other than calling people coons, because that does not help either. But ok.

    • Femme404

      I ain’t boycotting a damn thing. I love every holiday…every celebration. I love everything about my country because I know where I am. People who hate this country and choose to exercise their right to speak about it use the same freedom that would get them killed in other countries. America is not and never will be perfect, but as Churchill put it is the cleanest dirty shirt.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Like minds…

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Oh so it only matters on holidays that YOU celebrate.. Because your initial statement was can we not come together and boycott ONE holiday!

    • Chitsngiggles

      ??????

    • Chitsngiggles

      Ditto sis! Ditto!

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      you not lying Keya. we will cookout for NO reason, so if there’s an opportunity for working folks to have the day off, we fire it up. I mean, we aint standing around the grill singing ‘star spangled banner’ and crine, but we together, eating, laughing, and doting on our ‘youngins’ :shrug:

    • Cheddup Already Damn

      Are you fat? ????
      Talmbout I just do it because I love to cook ???
      I’m just joshing. Yeen gotta say ?

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      WTF? How you doing your kids like that? SO Christmas is a white man’s holiday too? The fugg? So you don’t celebrate with your kids? How hateful.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      But the Indians….Ok. We all have our hypocrisies.

    • Femme404

      Look I’m just going to say it…that’s some HORRIBLE sh*t.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Don’t do it.

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      YES!!!! You fuggin it up for your babies is not cool at all. Poor kids.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Back AWAY.

    • Cheddup Already Damn

      Thing! Bring it in :hug:

    • Chitsngiggles

      Nope. If one wants to boycott Thanksgiving I say do it. I’m partial to Thanksgiving because that is a holiday where my family and I can give Thanks to God for providing. But if it came down to the cause, I’d say fug that day too

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      But Thanksgiving is ok? The fugg type logic is that?! Man bye.

    • KDub

      Yes. They didn’t come this year tho. Their patriarch passed middle of June. Just as sweet as can be. All of em. My mom and 2 of her sisters are going to see the lady who lives in SC in October. It will be her 60th bday.

    • Femme404

      Man listen…I’ve been nice for 2 hours, but the kids is my line in the sand…that’s some deplorable sh*t.

      I love you moe tho

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      In order to make change we have to stop celebrating with the white man? Thats how we make change? Not everyone coming together and living in peace and being happy? No, lets all be hateful and not celebrate shyt with the white people, because that will make us better as a people. (in my TIP voice) You can miss me with it.

    • Cheddup Already Damn

      Shut it! Fat people need to be heard too! ???

    • Femme404

    • Chitsngiggles

      He puts up the Christmas tree. He is the one going crazy trying to make sure we have money to throw away on toys they ain’t gonna give a shyt about by NYE. I’d rather us travel and spend money there. He wants gifts, then he need to get up with them.

    • KDub

      We have stand for something Dub. That’s all I’m saying
      ^^^^^
      I’m still trying to figure out how I’m not standing for something. ..by being with 4 generations of my family on 4th of July.

    • Canary Red™

      At the end of the day “this is our land too” and I ain’t going back to Africa. I’m going to fight each situation as it comes but dammit I belong here just like they do! That’s what they want us to do segregate n separate. No thank you!

    • Femme404

      LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Real tears!

    • Chitsngiggles

      He sure is! I thank him for it too.

    • Hmmm~?

      You’re being ridiculous. If we need to make a stand against anything, it needs to be against the high prevalence of black on black crime. We need to focus on the problems within the black community before we focus on the illusionary problems outside of it. White folks aren’t ever going to take us seriously with the black community being in its current state.

    • Lenina Just Lenina

      Everybody barbecues or attends barbecues on the Fourth. Black white Asian Latin American and so on an so forth. Doesn’t mean they’re hateful or didn’t read their history books. It’s a holiday and a time to gather friends and family. Idk how it became a black/white issue.

      Please don’t say “we!” Unlike yourself, not all of us are unfortunate enough to need food stamps. And as a tax paying African-AMERICAN, unlike my slave ancestors who weren’t considered citizens but property, the 4th is now my holiday as well! As a country we have independence from England and as blacks we now have our independence from slavery. Rejoice in our accomplishments and keep pushing for more advancement for all of us???

    • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

      ??? I’m confused.

    • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

      Forgive me, but, y’all got kids? Are they confused as to what and if they are celebrating annually, or shyt, monthly? You will he won’t. He does you don’t. I don’t even live with y’all and I’m confused. Real questions. Dayum.

    • MrsTamla86

      I agree with EVERYTHING you said right there!Thank-you for schooling the people. I don’t blame our race for being so entrenched in Christianity-it’s the only thing we’ve been allowed to hold onto since slavery but we need to open our eyes. How can we still believe in a religion taught to our ancestors by our oppressors?Collectively we still can’t connect the dots that it was given to us to keep us passive and ‘in our place’ so to speak and its done its job magnificently over the centuries. Chitsngiggles, keep the knowledge coming, we have to keep repeating it over and over again until it sinks into our consciousness. Religious brain-washing is real y’all!

      Latinos, Cuban, Puerto Rico, Mexicans and all other races discriminate those of a darker hue. Jennifer Lopez was darker she will not be representative of the Latino race. If it not just us.

    • hottlanta

      They call you the N-word up north by having high rent you can’t afford, good generational jobs in the families through unions and not being able to get a taxi. People kill me if that racism is only down south and when some of them come down south from the north they don’t go back. We have lots of wealthy black folks only neighborhoods where we don’t need to go to Buckhead or Gwinnett County to be around white folks feel special

    • hottlanta

      Grandmother was a slave and couldn’t vote and yet in 2015 they are trying to abolish the voting rights act. Those who say they ain’t black will find out at the ballot box next year when they can’t vote and get their “N” word wake up call. Folks cheered when gays got the right to get married, let’s see how loud the world cheers when they abolish the voting rights act for black folks ONLY. If we are AMERICANS we don’t need a separate voting rights act.

    • Chitsngiggles
