Paula Deen Compares Herself To Michael Sam


It seems as quick as Paula Deen resurfaced from her last scandal, the southern fried chicken belle can’t keep her  foot out of her mouth.  In a recent with People Magazine, the former food network cook, compared herself to Michael Sam.

“I feel like ‘embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name,” Deen reportedly told People.“It’s like that black football player who recently came out. He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying”.

Paula, no. Some people may consider you closer to the people persecuting Sam for being gay, since you like to throw around the “n” word in your spare time. God only knows how many other derogatory terms you’ve used in your life time.

In the interview, which will hit stands on Friday, Deen also apologized for her behaviour.

“It’s amazing that some people are given passes and some people are crucified,” Deen was quoted as saying. “I have new empathy for these situations, though. My dad always told me, ‘Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.’”

The passes she’s speaking of were in regards to the Duck Dynasty scandal and Phil Robertson’s brief suspension. 

Let’s see how long before Paula has another slip of the tongue.

Woe is you, Paula. Woe is you. Go wade in a vat of butter at your new $20 million restaurant.

    I am so disappointed that this woman is actually making a comeback. I was so made when she open a store near my city. I believe the stage was already set when her story was being shown in the media. The media was only reporting that she only said the n word and not bringing up the other things. Of course if you got all your news from the media and didn’t dig deeper you would think she was being treated unfairly and deserved a second chance. I just don’t want to see this woman on TV. She doesn’t seem remorse and also seems very arrogant.

    Something needs to be done. I’m so sick and tired of people like this trivializing attacking black people. The fact that she even came out of her mouth and said those things in the article means that she’s not as worried as she should be. More boycotts, or something, because what she did to those people in her restaurant is beyond unacceptable, and she has the nerve to align herself with a black football player and his struggles with coming out? She knows what she’s doing. And those worst part is Whoopi Goldberg was on the view talking bout “let her live, I’m glad she’s finding success.” Some black people with a platform are dangerous.

      Not surprise Whoopi was the same person that said Mel Gibson wasn’t racist after his rant. She also was invovled in a black face incident awhile ago. I just don’t think this is one comeback that can be stop most people and even some black people just view it as some white woman who said the n-word one time in the 60s.
