    I suppose this is no time to point out there were fat people before Food Network?

    Paula Deen Paid One Of Her Black Employees In Beer

    June 24, 2013 / Posted by: Michael K

    And Paula Deen’s public transformation into Miss Millie from The Color Purple continues. Sheldon J. Ervin was an oyster cook at Bubba’s Oyster House for 2 years starting in 2008 and he filed an Equal Employment Opportunity & Diversity complaint against Paula Deen and her brother Bubba, because he claims he was forced to work private events and he wasn’t paid with cash. He was paid with beer. Paula is totally like that friend who gives you a six pack of Pabst to help them move. Only Paula will make you wear a white suit and tap dance while doing so.

    Sheldon tells Radar that he and other employees regularly worked private events at Paula’s mansion in Savannah and she rarely paid them with cash. Sheldon says that the Baroness of Butter’s white master dream of seeing an event where black men serve guests while wearing white suits came true several times. Sheldon says that Paula threw a graduation party for someone once and made him and other black employees wear a white chef jacket and black pants. If they didn’t own a white chef jacket, Paula’s people gave them money to go out and buy one. Sheldon said:

    “I didn’t want to wear it because it was burning hot outside, but Miss Paula insisted. Paula had us all stationed at a few shady spots in the yard. She wanted us all to stay in one spot. We weren’t allowed to move. They didn’t want us to interact or anything. They just wanted us to sit there and serve everyone and not say anything. Paula and Bubba just gave us beer and alcohol and I don’t even drink. She knew I had just gotten married. I had a baby on the way. I needed the money and I was the only one to step up and complain over it because half of the kitchen just needed their jobs. I was fired over it in the end because I’m not afraid to speak my mind.
    I’m so happy that this has finally come. I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time.”
    If that isn’t enough lard-based fuckery to clog up your arteries, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says that one of her former black employees claims that she always referred to them as her little monkey.”

    Since Paula bailed on Today last week, she’s going to make it up to them this Wednesday by talking to Matt Lauer about getting dropped by The Food Network. Of course they’d let Matt Lauer’s easy ass interview her. I wish they’d just drop her in the middle of Al Roker and Tamron Hall and let them stare her down for an hour straight.

    When it rains buttery racism, it pours buttery racism. I have a feeling this is only the beginning. But I am surprised that Paula Deen paid them with beer and alcohol. You’d think Paula would pay them with Kool-Aid and malt liquor. And I bet she paid her white employees with her currency of choice: butter.

    Smithfield Foods drops Paula Deen
    Hits to celebrity Southern chef continuing after racial slur controversy



    Staff and wire report
    2:05 p.m. CDT, June 24, 2013


    Smithfield Foods, the world's largest pork producer, said Monday it has dropped Paula Deen as its spokeswoman after the Southern chef admitted she had previously used racial slurs.


    The company said in a statement it "condemns the use of offensive and discriminatory language and behavior of any kind."


    The Food Network announced on Friday that it would not renew its contract with the celebrity chef, due to expire this month. And other sponsorships are also in question.


    Deen is set to appear on NBC-TV's “Today” show on Wednesday after canceling a scheduled interview last week.


    The program's anchor, Matt Lauer, said on Monday's show that Deen “told us she will be here this time.”


    Deen, who withdrew from an interview on June 21, tweeted, “See you Wednesday, I am so glad Matt, Al and my friends at @TodayShow are bringing me back.”


    The program did not say if Deen would address the controversy.


    Deen, 66, apologized in videos posted online for using a racial slur, but Food Network later said it would not renew the Southern chef's contract when it expired at the end of June.


    The controversy surrounding Deen began last week when a deposition taken as part of a lawsuit was released in which Deen, who is white, was asked if she had used the “N-word,” and responded, “Yes, of course.”


    Deen, who has built a business empire based on high-calorie and fried Southern food, with cookbooks, restaurants and kitchen supplies, made the comments in a deposition related to a racial and sexual discrimination lawsuit filed by a former employee.


    The former employee of Paula Deen Enterprises, Lisa Jackson, is suing Deen and her brother, Earl “Bubba” Hiers, over allegations that while discussing plans for Hiers' 2007 wedding, Deen said she wanted a “true southern plantation-style wedding.”


    Jackson said that Deen used the slur in the discussion describing how she wanted an all-black wait staff for the party dressed in “long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around,” she said, according to the lawsuit.

    looks like the Smithfield endorsement was worth about a mil in 2010.
    1. She is going to HAVE to address this shit. What else, at this point, would be the purpose of doing the Today show?
    2. Paula has denied saying the "N" word in 2007. She said she wanted "a true Southern Plantation wedding" or some such shit - which is BAAAAD but I'm not sure it's as bad as saying the "n" word... although, it is the same sentiment.

She's really wrong -- but I can see her justifying it that way. She is losing endorsements, her tv gig, etc. which isn't surprising either. This will really dent her, but I don't think it will totally break her. A lot of people with let this blow over and then grab a stick of butter and cook with Paula.

    Anyway, my sister is completely aghast at the whole thing. She was saying that she won't purchase anything that Paula supports anymore. I threw in that she shouldn't make Paula Deen's biscuit recipe anymore (which is the most god-awful recipe for biscuits EVER and my sister loves them but everyone in the family HATES them and doesn't have the nerve to tell her) -- but she said that they were just too good to not make again -- even because of this. Oh well, I tried.
    Ok, let me say that I haven't watched any of these videos out there. If she's saying these things, then YES - get her off my tv and everything else. It cracks me up about your sister. These people on tv are just like every other asshole out there... your poor sister! Paula Deen on a pedestal!

    I'm boycotting Boston Pizza in protest, but totally subscribing to their youtube channel! In their defense I'm sure that they were 'just ribbin'.
    Oh good lord. I wish I knew people like that in your video... no, I don't actually. "ribnecks", hmm.

    Paula is disgusting with the butter lovin' - no doubt about that. At this point, I'm not sure what good solving .0333% of the obesity problem is going to do.

    Of course there were... and there will be fat people once all of this dies down.


    ETA: I wonder if Paula will be kept on as producer of "Down Home with the Neely's"...
    With her net worth being around 17 million, this is going to hit her in her pocket - already has, actually. I wonder how long Bobby's show will continue without Mama there to wipe his little nose with her apron strings...
    And AGAIN: The guy who fucking says he was "paid in beer", why the fuck were you just WAITING? Why not do something when this shit happened? WTF is wrong with people?
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    I doubt highly this is the locals. It is the hounds of beetus ridden tourists that will wait hours to eat what I can cook in my kitchen much cheaper.

    ^When my mother and her friends were there they had to get their names on a list for dinner, then stand across the street waiting for them to come outside and ring the dinner bell. Then you were allowed to cross the street and get in line for a table.

    Yeah I've heard it is crazy. I'm not sure if there is any restaurant I'd do that for.

    I would never agree to work a job without asking how much I will be paid. Some of the fault is his own.

    maybe. but he makes it sound like they were 'forced' to work the event. to me, 'forced' means if you don't do it, you don't get to keep your job. we don't have a lot of details. . . .
