Paula Deen’s ‘I Love Lucy’ Brownface Photo Really Pissed People Off

Paula Deen has her fair share of racially insensitive incidents.

Back in 2013, she was fired from the Food Network for using the n-word. Now, she is in hot water once again.

Deen posted a photo to Twitter of her and her son dressed up as characters from “I Love Lucy.”

Paula dressed as Lucy and her son Bobby dressed as Lucy’s husband, Ricky — a Latino man.

Bobby wore brownface to play the part of Lucy’s husband.

Naturally, the photo caused controversy on Twitter, and Deen deleted it. But of course, the Internet is written in pen, not pencil.

Paula posted this photo to her Twitter account…
