Paula Deen Upsets More People With Facebook Ad
Paula just can't get a break, but at least she keeps it real. She knows what she likes and will not stray from it. Ms. Deen is catching heat for the photo above. This was an ad that she posted to her Facebook page and website for a restaurant in Savannah, Ga.
So why are people in an uproar? Well, some feel that the advertisement has racist undertones because the woman appears to be a "Mammy." A "Mammy" is a mother-type figure, popular during slavery. Paula has been very vocal about her fondness of early years when southern blacks, especially black women, were non-threatening servants.
Paula says that ad has been used on the website for five years and the lady in the ad has worked there for over 17 years and is like family to the Deens. What are your thoughts?
