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…
…and everyone freaked the f*ck out.
Paula Deen's PR team is literally just 3 sticks of butter in a trenchcoat.

Paula Deen tweeted a photo of herself as Lucy & her son IN BROWNFACE as Desi. Not sure what’s more disgusting: Racism or Imaginary Incest.

Maybe if a doctor could explain to Paula Deen that racism is like type 2 diabetes and you need to change your daily routine a little bit. — Dan Telfer (@dantelfer) July 7, 2015
How long before Trump adds Paula Deen to the Presidential ticket?
