After an insensitive tweet led to the firing of her social media manager, Paula Deen has some explaining to do. Earlier Tuesday, the person running Deen's Twitter account tweeted a photo featuring the culinary celebrity and her son, Bobby Deen, dressed up as the characters Ricky and Lucy Ricardo from the television show "I Love Lucy."

It was a Ricky and Lucy thing, was Ricky supposed to be Norwegian?
All these reactions make me want to make some of her better dishes.
Personally, I don’t find anything wrong with it. However, does Deen not remember all the financial flack over the “N” incident? One would think that if they got slammed so hard before.. they would be a bit more careful in the future. That being said.. it’s her name/business/and money.. she can do what she wants.
My gaydar has always gone off about Bobby.
No.....but I think Paula needs to be careful. She is already under the microscope. However with all the hoopla going on today.....this is from 2011. I understand that this was all over the media in every place from FR which I was actually happy to see.
The reaction is stupid. People are pathologically offended over anything.
Perhaps.....I never liked anybody in her family except for Paula.....her husband is sorta strange to me too.
Oh, yes! Definitely gay.
You know, on Saturday Night Live, they never use makeup to look like somebody else. [/SARCASM]
“... want to make some of her better dishes..”
I see a Deen pound cake in my future... this article reminded me of it. So yummy!
Are they sure he’s wearing makeup? I think I’ve seen him before and if he’s the same guy I’m thinking of he’s pretty swarthy. I suppose that word is racist now.
SWARTHY SWARTHY SWARTHY!!!!
I just wish Bobby and his mom would stop phuking with our Southern food. She goes over the top.....he cuts the calories. ENOUGH!!!!!!
I get truly pissed about the foodie chans trying to mess with our culture and food.
Stupid Paula Deen didn’t even get Lucy’s red hair the correct color!
One of the courses that should be part of every student’s curriculum ... how to walk on eggshells. This PC crap is way out of hand.
This is just subtle way of getting rid of our freedom of speech. IMHO
Kinda went overboard on the makeup. Looks more like Lucy and obama.
