Paula Deen Loses Another Sponsor

paula-deenIt seems that Paula Deen’s career is over with. Another chain store has pulled her products out of their places of business. JC Penny, who was selling merchandise with Deen’s brand on it, decided that they needed to, as well, distance themselves from thunderstorm that is happening with Paula Deen and her brand. So far: Target, Home Depot, QVC, Kmart, Sears, and Walmart have decided that the celebrity chef is not worth it anymore to be in their stores.

In case you have been living under a rock, Paula Deen is getting the boot from several stores and networks because of her opinion of using the “N” Word when addressing or talking about African Americans. In a politically correct society, that is a big slap in the face to many communities around the United States. Recently, Bubba, Paula Deen’s relative, was under fire for his ways of conducting business at the Seafood and Oyster House. A woman is suing Deen and Bubba for many things that include inequality in the work place, harassment and now racial

The bad news doesn’t seem it is going to be stopping any time soon. There are many people who have since then come out and claimed that they have been racially profiled or discriminated against. It is a hard time for Paula for sure, but many people feel she has done this to herself and where she could have said that she was sorry, instead blames it on years of growing up in the South and that she was raised to call people by the “N” Word.

Some feel that the treatment Paula has received is her “Just Deserts” and that she needs to leave the spotlight all together. However, there are the loyal fans that feel it is not a matter of their racial opinion, but her talent. If the talent to make delicious dishes is good, then there shouldn’t be a problem. What do you think of the entire Paula Deen drama? Do you feel she deserves everything she is getting and continues to get or do you feel that enough is enough?
