Yet another company has dropped Paula Deen in the wake of the Food Network giving her the boot and QVC apparently thinking about doing the same. Smithfield, a major pork company (that was recently purchased by a Chinese company), says it will no longer partner with Deen for her line of "Paula Deen Collection" hams in the wake of her n-word controversy, TMZ reports. "Smithfield is determined to be an ethical food industry leader and it is important that our values and those of our spokespeople are properly aligned," reads a statement from the company. As such, "we are terminating our partnership with Paula Deen." (Hilariously, it was a Smithfield ham Deen was once hit in the face with.)
Meanwhile, the racism flap grows: A black man who used to work with Deen and her brother says Paula often used him and other workers from her brother's restaurant to staff parties at her mansion, but rarely paid them. "She just gave us beer and alcohol for working all those days," he tells Radar. In one case, he says, he didn't want to work a party "but they threatened our jobs and put it on the line." He claims he and a few other black men were forbidden from talking to the guests. It seems the Paula Deen Apology Tour is about to begin: She's appearing on Today Wednesday, after she canceled her originally scheduled appearance last Friday, Us reports. But in more bad news for Deen, the publisher of her upcoming cookbook tells People it is "monitoring the situation closely," and Sears says it is "exploring next steps" with regard to her line of products.
That is a classic example, many people can relate to that one.
What a coincidence we had just stopped buying Smithfield products for good just two weeks ago.
There still a pack of Smithfield bacon in my freezer but that will be the last one.
Leftists eating their own..
She said when Magilla was on her show that when the camera wasn’t on she was woofin’ down the fats and sweets.
Not fond of her but she told the truth and is being crucified for it. Probably 99% of those who deny saying it are lying.
Paula Deen is held accountable for something she did thirty years ago and Obama, who slept through the murder of four Americans at Benghazi, gets no consequence.
Meanwhile black celebrities can disparage whites or Asians free of any recrimination
Ain’t America great?
So how is all this much different than Jim Crow with new dance to jig to?
They eat thier own
She also has a FURNITURE line....wonder if THEY will drop her? Didn’t even understand why they hired her, she’s nothing but a HILLBILLY DEMOCRAT!
