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 Deens New Testament, hit #1 on the sites Best Seller list despite not being released until October.
It turns out those huge pre-sale numbers are for naught. The books publisher has canceled its release.
In a statement released Friday afternoon, Ballantine Books announced it has dropped Deen and will not publish Paula Deens New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up, despite its pre-sale soaring to #1 on the Amazon chart this week.

Black people circle the wagons and collectively demand that “you can’t judge” or “he deserves a second chance” when black figures like Chris Brown or Michael Vick beat women or kill dogs. Hell, the black community even celebrated OJ’s acquittal after he nearly lopped the heads off two white people. If a white person says or does anything even perceived to be racist, however, the black community collectively pounces on them. They are chomping at the bit to judge and they will never, ever give a white person accused of racism a second chance.
Since they play the blame game so unfairly, I’ve thrown in the towel at being just and will now blindly support “my people “ as Eric Holder would say.
Nope, neither. She's a libtard that voted for BHO both times. I don't get what all the hate is either but it's not getting better, only worse as more sponsors drop her. And of course, ALL news channels talking about it non-stop doesn't help her cause either. Could this be another distraction from the NSA snooping, IRS targeting, etc? Probably planned. Supposedly all this stems from a disgruntled former employer that was known as a drama queen and trouble-maker. I read the deposition yesterday.
I hope she’s got a good lawyer.
And its just as easy for ‘’We the People’’ to use our wallets to the disadvantage of the businesses boycotting dean.
The fact of the matter is this: If you try to behave as an American, they will take you down!
THAT is the true msg.
Using the N word destroys careers. But most Hollywood movies include the obligatory insulting of Jesus’s name by using it as a curse word. Society treats this blasphemy as inconsequential.
Using the N word is wrong, but using Christ’s name in vain is worse.
Of course, she did nothing wrong uttering the oooooh, all so much dread N word (obligatory -
“oooooooh!” in hushed tones and a tisk, tisk) but this isn’t the first. Back about 10 years ago, Oprah was doing a show on Thomas Jefferson and Sally Heming’s decendants (if they were his). At the end of the show, she made the whites in the audience stand up and apologize. And... people did.
How many whites were made to vote for the POSTUS black candidate because of white guilt? I’ve sat here in my own livingroom and listened to some snot nosed white guy spout off that we don’t need anymore old white men in the WH... that hussein is BLAAAACK! (wow, who knew)... that he caaaaares about everyone!!!! I was very gracious and let the twerp live.
As for the current story, it was about a cookbook as per the headline. Of course, the whole story is behind the dropping of the book is ridiculous.
It is rather amazing how the lib media will eat it's own, ain't it?
Deen should stop apologizing. Its making things worse.
Whoever is advising her should be fired.
Interesting I haven't seen the usual race baiters in the media denouncing her.
Corporations are running scared over a word said 3 decades ago. Its all so intriguing.
This is what happens when you have no spine and go on TV like a blathering idiot crying. If she’s not going to stand up for herself why should anyone else?
You obviously didn’t read the lawsuit. There is plenty of evidence that the entire Deen clan is a bunch of racists from the way they ran their restaurants.
Deen is also an unrepentant Democrat and a shameless Obama booster.
Which is why I’m enjoying what’s happening to her. It’s like she’s looking around wondering “Didnt I pay my dues, why are they doing this to ME?”
Another publisher will pick it up but it probably won’t be a NYC publisher....... If you know what I mean!!!
Just as well, PD can now include a nice long chapter on this incident and come out better than before.
The trashing Paula frenzy is really a surrogate for libs and others to express their know_nothing hatred for traditional America which was 90% white when I was born
Ah well who’s cryin now
I agree. Her cooking is too rich for me, but I’ll buy her book if she publishes it herself.
You obviously didnt read the lawsuit. There is plenty of evidence that the entire Deen clan is a bunch of racists from the way they ran their restaurants.
The woman suing said that or is there other facts to back her accusations?
From what I’ve heard the woman suing has issues.
How can they be racist? Saying nigger or cracker is not considered racist but slang, according to the Zimmerman prosecution witness Jeantille or hippo or whatever the ignorant broad said. That was accepted.
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 dont suit their political agenda
Libs clearly are bigots. A democrat Southern woman with an accent is thrown under the bus while Democrat men aren’t.
If Deen wasn’t a Southern woman who loved high carb food I don’t think this would be happening. Look at Martha Stewart. She went to prison but is still a liberal celeb.
There are witnesses to most of the accusations. I’m in Georgia. Many locals here can’t stand Deen.
I never said she was a saint nor do I believe she should be treated any way different from the melanin enhanced species. They treat whites the same way she MAY have treated the special class. Period. I don’t think she was ever involved in the knock out game.
And so you proved my point. The Deens treated everyone like crap which is why they need to be rejected.
