Paula Deen has some explaining to do, again.

"An image posted on her social media accounts Tuesday showed Deen and her son Bobby dressed as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo from the classic TV comedy show "I Love Lucy" -- which might not have been so bad if Bobby Deen's face was not clearly painted a darker shade of brown than his hands. Many were quick to call out the look as "brownface" and ask what the popular chef was thinking, especially two years after she was fired from the Food Network for using a racial slur."

"As one person tweeted: "Oh, boy...Paula Deen DOES NOT get it."

What do you think, does she know what she is doing or does she really not get it?

This is a stupid, stupid, stupid woman.
I just cant figure out what she or her handlers must be thinking? Is she that naïve? Does she think its funny or cute? If she is naïve how come no one stops and says anything to her?

Lots of people manage to have cooking shows that are about the food and not the personalities. This is a lazy woman using sensationalism to sell her "brand". I'm so sick of these phony baloney fake rednecks all over the television. They are making southerners look like idiots.

Paula Deen fired the Media Consultant that did that,as soon as she found out.

Her two boys have a new show on Food Network. I like both of them and intend to watch.

Paula fired the man responsible. I always enjoyed her shows. I wonder how many of us would be fired for making ignorant remarks?
