Paula Deen has apparently not learned her lesson from the N-word scandal of 2013, because Tuesday (July 7) she posted a photo of herself and son Bobby dressed as Lucy and Desi Arnaz as part of “Transformation Tuesday” — and her son went the full nine yards, wearing brownface to impersonate the famous Cuban actor/singer.
The photo is actually from a 2011 Halloween episode of “Paula’s Best Dishes.”
But Paula Deen has apologized and fired her social media manager in wake of the photo’s release, according to People Magazine.

Twitter is, naturally, having a field day with the ill-advised tweet from Deen — who has since deleted it from her Twitter account.
A request from Deen’s rep for comment has not been returned at this time.
Paula Deen is that neighbor you invite to your Tupperware party and after a glass of wine or two, proves what everyone says about her.

Is it odd that today is the day Paula Deen has been appointed as the new Subway spokesperson? @absrdNEWS
