Paula Deen's Career May Be Over
That NY Post article doesn't include the most shocking report to come out about Ms. Deen's allegedly bizarre racist attitudes.
There's also this, via Fox News:
Jackson said also Deen wanted African-American employees to act like slaves for a big wedding she was planning. Deen explained she got the idea from a restaurant where “the whole entire waiter staff was middle-aged black men, and they had on beautiful white jackets with a black bow tie,” the Enquirer reports. The magazine also quoted Deen as saying: “I mean, it was really impressive. That restaurant represented a certain era in America…after the Civil War, during the Civil War, before the Civil War…It was not only black men, it was black women…I would say they were slaves.”
I don't want to deploy the sad trombone, again - but - ohhhh boy....
Keep in mind, though - it is The National Enquirer reporting that, so take it with a grain of salt. (Or a pound of buttah.)
Naturally, people have been having lots of fun with this on Twitter. #Paulasbestdishes was trending, yesterday, and of course, Twitchy has some of the best tweets.
