Walmart ditches Paula Deen

As if the Waltons of Bentonville, Arkansas never said the N word...

by Anonymousreply 6506/29/2013

I'm surprised that Walmart ditched her, they are even more offensive than she. They are a perfect match.

by Anonymousreply 306/26/2013

When even Walmart thinks your racist... well, that should be a wake up call.

by Anonymousreply 406/26/2013

Maybe Chik Kil Gay will pick her up as a mascot?

by Anonymousreply 506/26/2013

But ..., but ... she bought her son Hank Aaron pajamas for his B-Day when he was a kid.

Why, no racist on earth would ever do such a thing.

I know Im the only one who was hoping they'd have a huge clearance sale on her kitchenware, like 75% off.

Caesars just cut ties with her too. This woman is gonna be driven to suicide.

by Anonymousreply 806/26/2013

Caesars Entertainment also ditched her. They have a PAC that contributed heavily to the Republicans.

Paula Deen, just go away. Forever. And take your two good for nothing sons with you.

by Anonymousreply 1206/26/2013

Betcha Walmart takes her back fairly soon.

Her behavior actually appeals to a lot of their demographic, and nobody who shops at Walmart gives a shit about employees being treated badly.

I don't know, she was pretty convincingly broken up about it on the Today show. I just wanted to hold her. But honestly, how many more millions does she think she deserves?

Oh please, what melodrama! Paula Deen is crying for herself, the way people on trial cry on the stand. They aren't upset because they regret their actions, or are sorry for what they did, they cry because they are sorry they got caught, and are having to face the consequences of those actions. This woman is a fool:

Please. I want to meet you. I is who I is and I'm not changing. There's someone evil out there that saw what I worked for and they wanted it.

Shut up, Paula.

And if you haven't seen it, watch this clip of her talking to The NYT last year about how slaves were just like family and then introducing her “as black as that board” friend to the audience:

R15, that was a pretty sweet clip, and Paula wasn't being racist at all.

by Anonymousreply 2206/26/2013

I'm sure if she brought out her gay stylist and made a reference to his limp wrists, I'm sure that would've been sweet, too.

Exactly. Her bad employee practices would serve as a reminder of their own employee practices and that would get hurled in their faces.

Oh no, R8. People like her do not commit suicide. She may fake one for sympathy but she is the type that casually destroys others' lives, bats her eyes and asks, "Me? What did I do? I loved my employees as if they were my own property, er, I mean children."

Um.... you are aware that associating "gay" with effem-inate, annoying, bitchy, silly, weak, embarrassing behavior is the full time mission of this site, right?

How is it racist to say someone is "as black as this board" if it's true? I'm as white as a ghost, people tell me that all the time, and I do not take it as racism! It's just the truth concerning the color of one's skin. And?

by Anonymousreply 2906/26/2013

That's right R29-- and when you are standing next to your snowy white sheets drying on the line, I'm sure it's not unusual for a neighbor to yell out "Come over here. We can't see you standing next to those linens."

It's all the same thing.

She'll ALWAYS be a beloved celebrity in Georgia and in other parts of the south. Her restaurants will flourish down there, but nationally speaking, she's dead now.

Take an easy on Paula Deen. She doesnt hate black people. She thinks everybody should own one.

The food at her Savannah restaurant is awful. Total tourist trap.

[quote]Let me guess: When someone calls you "faggot", you don't take it as homophobia and just consider it the truth concerning one's sexuality?

That's not the same thing at all. Pointing out the color of my skin (matter-of-factly) is not the same as hurling derogatory names. If you watched the entire clip, her friend comes up on stage and he is in fact as black as that board. How is that racist to say? You people get your panties twisted SO easily! Talk about pearl clutchers.

Her tears on The Today Show were as real as Susan Lucci's. Her eyes weren't even damp.

Maybe she can put an axe handle over the entrance to welcome all fellow travelers. Wink wink.

Her crying on The Today Show rivals the display put on by the North Korean people when their beloved leader died.

by Anonymousreply 3906/26/2013

Her weepy "apology" on Today was a load of crap. Wasn't saying "I is what I is" just another way of saying "I'm a big fat racist so get over it" ?

Stop perpetuating that bullshit spin.

r 1 is right. There is a 33 page complaint, made by a white woman (btw) stating all kinds of gender, sexual and racist harassment from the Deen family.

That was yesterday or the day before.

Bye bye Food Network

Bye bye Smithfield

Bye bye Harrah's aka Paula Deen's buffet restaurants - I think Caesars Entertainment is the parent corporation that announced they'd be rebranding the restaurants.

Bye bye Wal-Mart (baking dishes & knife ware)

Bye bye Home Depot

Bye bye Novo Nordisk diabetes drug company

Bye bye Target

K Mart & Sears & QVC still waiting

Random House, which is publishing Deen’s upcoming book, “Paula Deen’s New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up,” similarly told People magazine it is “monitoring the situation closely.” The book is scheduled to come out in October.

A food company in Ohio seems to be standing by her - can't remember their name.

Have I missed anything?

by Anonymousreply 4606/27/2013

It's a company that has no previous ties with her and no ties with her right now. The "standing by her" is no different from someone at DL saying everyone is being too rough on her.

I have a vague memory of hearing that her show regardless of being cancelled on The Food Network is still planning on shooting. I'm willing to bet that CMT will pick up her show.

That was several days ago. The stories keep coming and building. It would be no surprise to see some people cancel their advance orders for the cookbook. Of course, her southern fans will stick by the bitch now that they've heard about her use of the n-word and the f@g word.

It won't last long. It's like after a singer dies all of their songs and albums shoot back to the top of the charts one last time.

Besides, good book sales (which the publisher gets a chunk of) don't make up for the huge endorsements deals she lost from big companies. That's where the real money is at.

by Anonymousreply 5106/27/2013

I was pissed at her for the diabetes thing; she should've lost all her deals back then. Glad she's getting dropped now. Not only is she a racist but she's a hypocrite too.
