Glenn Beck is still jabbering away on his pretend news network, the Internet. You know who reminds him of racist death-food huckster Paula Deen? Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., obviously!
The Food Network and Walmart ditched her after news of her rampant racism, but Paula Deen has also gained plenty of supporters. Proof: the increased demand for her cooking cruise. So many, says Anna Breslaw in Jezebel's Dirt Bag, that they are now using two entire cruise ships.
Modern-day slavery fan Paula Deen finally went on the Today show to cry and beg for forgiveness. Still, she wonders if the black people really get offended by the N-word. After all, she has heard the blacks in her kitchen use this word!
People keep accusing ex-Food Network's chef Paula Deen of racist behavior: an African-American cook who worked at one of her restaurants says Deen "just gave us beer and alcohol and I don’t even drink [for payment.] It was insulting and unfair. I was like, 'Pay me!'"
Jezebel's Tracy Moore answers a common question these days: "Why is anyone surprised that Paula Deen is racist? She's an old white lady from the South!" Thinking that everyone in Dixieland is a racist is wrong, she argues—but "there are definitely lot of racists there" and she has collected them all in a guide.
Atrocious diabetes monster Paula Deen put out another rambling apology for "the N-word" and other racially wacky actions—such as dressing her black employees as "slaves" and then treating them as slaves—and was promptly dismissed from the Food Network where she inexplicably became a TV star for serving pig slop.
