    Paula Deen the Victim of 'Lynch Mob Culture,' says Anne Rice - Yahoo! TV
    Paula Deen the Victim of 'Lynch Mob Culture,' says Anne Rice
    By Tim Kenneally | The Wrap – 5 hours ago.. .

    For someone who makes a living with words, author Anne Rice appears to have made a poor choice with them when it comes to discussing the controversy surrounding Paula Deen's use of the N-word.

    Rice, probably best known for her "The Vampire Chronicles" series of novels, came to the celebrity chef's defense via her Facebook page on Friday -- the same day that Deen was dropped by the Food Network -- and suggested that she had become the victim of "a lynch mob culture."

    Ouch. For the three people who are still living under that rock on this one, Deen was let go from the Food Network after admitting in a deposition that she had used the N-word on occasion.

    And just for good measure, Rice threw a Christ-like accusation of persecution into her defense of Deen.

    "What's happening with Paula Dean? Is it fair? I never heard of her until today, and wow, this looks like a crucifixion," Rice wrote. "I may be wrong but aren't we becoming something of a lynch mob culture? Is this a good example of that?"

    Rice ended her post by asking her Facebook following,"What are your feelings?"

    So far, Rice has gotten plenty of "feelings" in reply.

    "Anne Rice, really?!!" one commenter wrote. "As an African-American educator and New Orleanian I am offended that you would assume the Ms. Deen is being crucified! Did you not read the words she spoke? If not, please do."

    The response ended, "You disappoint me."

    "Did you read the transcript of her deposition?" another voice chimed in. "It is very shocking."

    Not everyone who responded disagreed with Rice, however.

    "For this to come out about something being said years ago is a bit much of a witch hunt," one poster said.

    Lynch mob is a really poor choice of phrase here. A writer, even one as shitty as Anne should understand that.

    Watching the Lauer interview now. She's "distressed". Of course you are dear - your sponsors are running for cover. She would not have fired herself. She's coming across so far as some kind of victim - no responsibility whatsoever for what she says. And says she's not a racist. She's got her head up her ass.

    All creatures are created equal!! She never said she didn't have a problem or discriminate against people for the color of their skin. She did say she didn't have a problem with who people CHOOSE to go to bed with at night???

    No accountability whatsoever. None. We're all just a bunch of bullies. Disgusting.

    All that crying at the end of her interview yet no actual tears were shed. Didn't she say she wasn't an actress?

    What did George ever cast Paula for? I see nothing and he said he has no idea what you are talking about. He stays away from high fat, and fried foods.
