So yeah. I defended Paula Deen before I had all of the facts. I was traveling, so what? Now that I’ve read up on her comments, have mercy!!!
Via the Daily Beast:
2. She really wanted to stage that Southern plantation-style wedding. But she didn’t because the media wouldn’t understand.
Jackson said she was put in charge of arrangements for Bubba’s wedding, which Deen apparently said she wanted to have a “true Southern plantation-style theme.” What, pray tell, does that mean? “Well what I would really like is a bunch of little n—-rs to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts, and black bow-ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around,” Deen reportedly elaborated. Alas, the wedding Deen envisioned never came to be. “We can’t do that because the media would be on me about that,” she reportedly told Jackson. In her testimony, Deen said that she actually was referencing the “beautiful white jackets with a black bow-tie” she saw the wait staff of “middle-aged black men” wearing at a restaurant she visited “in Tennessee or North Carolina or somewhere.”
This chick is a crazy whacked out racist bitty. Food Network was right to non renew her. It’s just too bad they didn’t look into her a bit more closely eh? But guess what y’all?!
She’s a Democrat. Betcha that little old juicy detail won’t be trumpeted by the media.
