Paula Deen apologizes again, is flogged some more

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

The dunk-tanking of Paula Deen over a racial slur she’s admitted to uttering in the 1980s continued today, with Walmart dropping her products and a small buffet food chain removing her name even as she tearfully apologized once again—this time on NBC’s Today Show. Meanwhile, 9 other business entities say they will not join the Food Network and others in dumping the Queen of Southern Cooking. Deen also picked up support from an unexpected quarter: the Rev. Jesse Jackson offered his help, saying that while what Deen did was wrong she doesn’t deserve the sacrificial lamb treatment she’s receiving. Today Show video and AP story here.
