Earlier today, Paula Deen was a real disaster on The Today Show, and just a little while ago she lost three more corporate partners: Caesars Entertainment, Home Depot, and Wal-Mart. Bubba-bye!

I see many people expressing the sentiment that the backlash is too much for "simply making a mistake".

Look, I'm willing to bet the extent of the her & her brother's racism that has been exposed to the public is only the tip of the iceberg. The fact that the lot of them are now playing the biggest victims ever shows that they are in no way apologetic for their atrocious behavior and the stupid disgusting things they have said & done, they are apologetic they got caught and are now losing money because of it.

I'm glad to live in a time when this kind of racist bullshit cannot just be slid under the rug. I give no fucks whatsoever IF the backlash is "too much". IMO it is not.

The days where white people get to say whatever the fuck they want and there are no consequences are fucking over. Yes, you have the freedom to be a racist fuck and spew racist shit, but you do not have freedom from the consequences. Welcome to the goddamn club.
