Paula Deen Comic Book To Live On In Wake Of Major Brand Implosion

Now that Paula Deen’s big business deals have fallen like so many dominos in the wake of her admission to using racist language, it might seem like there aren’t many companies out there eager to sell goods with her name attached. Not so in the world of comics, apparently, as one publisher says it’s going ahead with plans to release the comic book Female Force: Paula Deen in October.

Bluewater Productions announced this week that “despite the recent media hailstorm and public criticism aimed at celebrity chef Paula Deen … it will not change plans to publish its Female Force biography comic book title featuring the embattled TV personality due out this fall.”

We know what you’re thinking — are they actually standing by her or is this whole thing just an excuse to kick her while she’s down? After all, the promo photo does show her rising out of a tub of butter. Not so, the company president tells Reuters.

How come the rappers. movie stars, directors etc. are given a free pass on saying the "n" word all the time, when she admitted she said it like 30 years ago, AFTER she was robbed at gunpoint? Anybody of ANY race can be the "N" refers to the type of person somebodyis==not race!
