Skip to comments.No Surprise Here: Stacey Dash Tweets Supports For Paula Deen
Posted on 06/30/2013 4:24:41 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Clueless actress Stacey Dash tweeted her support for disgraced chef Paula Deen and the criticism was harsh and instantaneous.
As previously reported by NewsOne, Deen was fired by The Food Network after admitting to using the racial slur X and plantation fantasies about having Black men dress in white shorts and bow-ties to serve food at a wedding reception.
Lisa Jackson, a former general manager of Bubbas Oyster and Seafood House in Savannah, Georgia, alleged in a lawsuit that she experienced emotional distress after being racially and sexually harassed in the workplace.
The restaurant is co-owned by Deen and her brother Bubba Hiers.
Though Deen denied the charges, she admitted to using the racial slur after allegedly being robbed by a Black man.
During the ensuing fallout, Deen has also been dropped by Wal-Mart, Target, Diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk, Caesars Entertainment and Smithfield Foods.
Deen has not been without some unlikely supporters and unexpected sympathizers and rationalizers. They include Rev. Al Sharpton, who said she shouldnt be judged on using a racial slur in her past, Dr. Boyce Watkins, who in an appearance on CNNs AC360 argued that Deens age and environment should be taken into account when judging her; Roland Martin, who argued that Black people should be just as upset when other Black people use the n-word as racist White people; and Bill Maher, who defended Deens use of the word X by declaring it freedom of speech on par with Hip-Hop music.
Today, Rev. Jesse Jackson joined in and said that Deen shouldnt be a sacrificial lamb. See some reactions to Dashs support of Deen below:
If miss Stacy gets fed up with all the belligerent abuse and decides she needs some intelligent conversation, a sympathetic ear and some comfort, I would be happy to oblige her.
GD it get a new mouse
Your the master of the 2 or 3 in a row news/thread postings.
At some point you need to stop hitting ‘post’.
I am not hitting more than once. It’s some setting. I thought it was fixed.
I did not know slaves wore shorts.
I like it because it gives me more opportunity to post a reply first. ; )
Can’t stand Paula Deen (never could - think she is a phoney) but she certainly doesn’t deserve the media assault and backlash that has been thrust upon her.
I guess she (Paula is a big Democrat, great friends with Jimmy Carter & campaigned for Obama twice) just found out how liberals treat other liberals when they feel like it. They can build you up and they can tear you down if you don’t follow their thinking and beliefs (whatever they are at the moment).
I think a thorough investigation by me needs to be conducted, before I'd pronounce her not guilty.
This whole thing has been blown way out of proportion. First, just in these two sentences, newsone has shown their bias. But, beyond that I defy ANYONE to say there isn't something that they did or said when they were younger that they wish they could take back. Every single one of us has done it and all this shows is that we Americans have to go after the people on top and bring them down.

But this is now the “transformed” America, where there are so many complex laws and new cultural “norms”, that everyone is guilty of violating at least one. Then it simply becomes a matter of whom TPTB want to vilify and ruin.
Because she is a raging liberal
