It’s been two years since Paula Deen basically destroyed her reputation for admitting to using black racial slurs. Guess a lawsuit, lost endorsement deals, or living in the twenty-first century aren’t enough to talk some sense into someone. Paula posted a photo on Twitter this morning of herself dressed as I Love Lucy’s Lucy Ricardo with her 45-year-old son Bobby, dressed as Lucy’s Cuban husband Ricky. In brownface.
The Tweet had the caption: “Lucyyyyyyy! You got a lot of esplainin’ to do! #TransformationTuesday @BobbyDeen.” Maybe Paula deleted it an hour after it was posted because she felt some form of human consciousness kicking in. Or, maybe it was because she was torn to shreds by Twitter users, calling her out for her pure carelessness.
Wow Paula Deen is just fundamentally racist down to her stupid bones.

"Why are people upset? It's not blackface and I haven't said the n-word" -Paula Deen later today.

Does Paula Deen and her son not realize that there are Cubans who look just like them?!? It's like they went out of their way to be racist.

This just in: she’s posted since deleting the pic and you guessed it, she still doesn’t care.
