But, some folks think the network was wrong in cutting ties with Paula, again I don't. Pastor Gregory A. Tyson, Sr. from First Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church in SAVANNAH, GA spoke to WTOC about Hollis Johnson. Whose the black man( in the clip below)who manages much of Deen's affairs, travels everywhere with her, owns a successful limo company with a fleet of cars that Deen helped finance and start -- and Johnson's relationship with Deen.
After doing some research of my own, I come to find out this is not the first time Paula Deen have been called to the network board room. Paula who's a diabetic didn't let anyone at the network know or her fans for a long time and continued to make unhealthy dishes laced with tons of butter and salt. I felt like she should have been fired then for being decitful.
And just to think she feels this way about (some) African Americans and to think all things civil war and Jim crow era is cute and okay.
In the below clip Paula Deen is defending the actions, perceptions and racism of the old south. There's no way in HELL that the injustice done to a group of people in that time frame can ever be justified by anyone. Good job Food Network.
