Paula Deenís #1 Amazon Best-Selling Book Dropped By Publisher Months Before Release
Mediaite ^ | 6/28/13 | Andrew Kirell

Posted on 06/28/2013 6:55:48 PM PDT by Nachum

Earlier this afternoon, we reported on how despite the controversy over her past use of racial epithets, celebrity cook Paula Deen is experiencing a surge in book sales on retailer Amazon. The sales spike was so strong that her newest book, Paula Deen’s New Testament, hit #1 on the site’s Best Seller list despite not being released until October.

It turns out those huge pre-sale numbers are for naught. The book’s publisher has canceled its release.

In a statement released Friday afternoon, Ballantine Books announced it has dropped Deen and will not publish Paula Deen’s New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up, despite its pre-sale soaring to #1 on the Amazon chart this week.

This is nothing more than Black Ku Klux Klan Racism

I hear Trayvon Martin call George Zimmerman a “N-—” and he is idolized....Deen is lynched over it

I dont care if this woman voted Democrat...this is outright evil what is going on

I gave up on her recipes years ago. They were never anything great. I was getting annoyed with her 5 years ago but when she promised to have both candidate’s wives on, I was willing to give her another chance. She failed on that promise when she only had on Moo. Four years later, same song and dance. Then her continued employment with Smithfield with their illegal employees. Nope, she’s long been banned in this tv.

This is a “manufactured crisis” meant to incite race tensions in the lead up to the Zimmerman verdict.

The Paula Deen saga will piss off the white people, while Zimmerman’s acquittal will piss off the blacks. Obama wants this.

Just my opinion

I don’t know this woman from Adam, but is she a Conservative, Christian, or in any way support freedom or patriotic causes? The unhinged attacks on her are ridiculous and seem very coordinated and I am wondering why all the hate for her.

I never gave two hoots about her politics. Her food is terrible. I believe she is getting shafted here, but I wouldn’t by this book anyway.

Deen is a big Obama supporter and the Liberals are turning on her in mass. This is amazing. There is no evidence she is a racist yet she’s being destroyed.

She is a Democrat who voted for 0bama. Hopefully, she’s now aware of her flawed ideology that she’s now become a victim of.

I hope the liberals get even angrier and turn on her en masse. :-)

Maybe this is payback for her love of high carb foods...

I really don't give a rat's rear-end about Deen or her book, BUT this is absolutely ridiculously. Another publisher should snap that book up immediately, or she should self-publish it.

Do any of these boycotters have anything to do with Baldwin?

I hope she converts the manuscript to .mobi format and self-publishes through Amazon’s Kindle program. Her per-book profit will at least triple. Unless Amazon dumps her. They might.

I really don’t believe black people care one bit about Paula Deen or what she did in the past. This is about liberals’ (mostly whites) desire to tear down anything southern, even though she is one of them.

(I quit watching her long ago when she started showing her love for all things liberal.)

Well,the publisher lost out on one money making opportunity.But fear not,they're sure to pick up Trayvon Martin's posthumous autobiography “Nigga,It's A Crazy A$$ Cracker”.

This is a Southern style food show. In mass seems to be the appropriate term. And pass me that gravy.

The only ones going after Baldwin are TMZ..which I am surprised about since Harvey Levin is a lib and is gay..they are saying that if Baldwin were a Republican the media would be outraged, but since Baldwin is a lib he can get away with it. Perhaps this is a life lesson for Paula Deen..liberals will gladly throw away their own if they don’t suit their political agenda

I am really not that big of a fan but I’ll buy one just to annoy liberal idiots.
