Paula Deen: The Popeye defense


popeye

FURTHER UPDATE: 7 p.m., Wal-Mart Stores just announced they are dropping Paula Deen’s products from their stores.

UPDATE: 9:32 a.m. Based on her Today show appearance, it was announced Paula Deen lost another endorsement – from Caesar’s Entertainment.

With her two apology videos going bust, Paula Deen took to the airwaves on the Today show this morning to apologize for her use of the N-word, which she admitted to in a deposition she gave in a court proceeding.

The tears were flowing as PR sound bite after PR sound bite emanated from Paula’s mouth.

“Every creature on this earth was created equal.”

“He who is without sin cast the first stone.”

“If God led us to it, he’ll get us through it.”

“There is something evil out there…”

“If you’ve never committed a sin, pick up a rock and throw it at me as hard as you can.”

And then there was the Popeye defense: “I is what I is and I’m not changing.” Read more…

It wasn’t a good week for Paula Deen. Stick a fork in her, she’s done. Or is she?

The Food Network, which is currently airing three of her shows, announced it was dropping her after a 14 year run.

I shed no tears for her. She has been coasting on her overdone “aw shucks” Face In the Crowd personality and over the top bad, insult to Southern cooking for a long time.

The announcement came after The National Enquirer, yes that National Enquirer, leaked a court deposition by Deen in which she admitted to using the N-word and wanting to plan a ‘plantation-style wedding’ for her brother with black waiters dressed like slaves. Read the full 149 page transcript when you have an hour or two to kill. She also revealed she has quite a potty mouth, and admitted to referring to an underage waitress as a ‘piece of p***y.’ Read more…
