A Chinese company, huh? I'm no Paula Deen fan, but when it comes to racial "sensitivity", the Chinese have dirty hands themselves:
No BS their really is such a thing sold over there, particularly in Taiwan. An old buddy of mine whose part Taiwanese told me about this stuff.
If Paula Deen really did offer beer, instead of money, and you didn’t want the beer, why would you keep working for her?
That doesn’t stand up to scrutiny, imo.
My sides are hurting so bad from laughing.............
They've sold out to the Chinese and dare to claim too be ethical? This is probably a blessing in disguise for Deen. Saves her the trouble of trying to get out of the contract herself.
“an ethical company blah blah blah as such blah blah blah some self-serving bullsh1t our lawyers wrote up under the supervision of the federal diversity advisors blah important to us yadda yadda we know nobody gives a rat’s @ss and we sure don’t but we know a media wave when we see it and aim to ride it.”
Who over 40 could possibly pass the Paula Dean standard?
Just another example of people being pickout at random and destroyed.
Awww poor Obama-lover. Hoisted on her own petard.
Being so “ethical” doesn’t keep Smithfield from hiring illegal aliens.
She must have socked away a fortune over the past decade. I’d like to see her go completely rogue. I’m sure she can afford it.
How come nobody drops the Black folks that make Cracker and Honky quips?
Obama has made this country so overly race sensitive it hurts.
Next: A public flogging of Deen on Oprah. Free tickets for the offended and wallet size photos of the main event at cost.
This should not be a big deal... political correctness went amuck some time ago... the only persons who aren’t protected against attack are the conservatives and Christians. Too much picky picky and not enough common sense. She shouldn’t have used those words, but that goes for way too many people who use those and other words I find offensive. Clean out your own mouth before you strike out against others.
I’m really weary of grownups who can’t stand this or that.... really picky stuff... and allow the important things to just go. There’s too much that needs to be fixed today, than to waste time on Paula Deen and what she said 20 some years ago. Our country is going to hell in a handbasket, and the news of the day is what someone said long time ago that was offensive?
Paula Deen embarassed Moochelle and “they’ve” been gunning for her ever since. They’re shutting down a multi-million dollar “business” and lots of companies are giving up lots of profit. This is all to show the world “You do not mess with the obamas”.
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..
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?
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!
