Paula Deen. When will you learn that being a racist just isn’t cute or cool?

Nobody thinks that your butter and shrimp lovin’ ass is adorable for posting this, even if it wasn’t your fault it got posted, because guess what?

You still posed for the pictures, you still had a whole show with your son in brownface.

Not. Cool.

A Paula Deen spokesman told BuzzFeed News that a social media manager was to blame for the picture, and that person has been fired.

Paula Deen’s Social Media Manager posted a picture this morning of Paula and Bobby Deen dressed in costume as Lucy and Ricky, from I Love Lucy. This photograph is from a Halloween episode of Paula’s Best Dishes that aired in 2011.
Paula immediately had this picture taken down as soon as she saw the post and apologizes to all who were offended. As such, Paula Deen Ventures has terminated their relationship with this Social Media Manager.

Just, really, Deen family, have you learned nothing? Brownface is racism, the end, OK? Can you join the ranks of those of us living in 320 15 yet?
