There are actually 200,000 people standing behind her. Not literally, of course.
Everyone has supporters. Even people that think it’d be “cute” to dress blacks up like slaves for the ultimate throwback Thursday wedding social. We’re gonna skip the food puns here and just get to it: Outed racist Paula Deen now had a support group on Facebook. Yeah.
Via E! Online:
The Food Network may no longer enjoy Paula Deen‘s cooking, but her fans are still standing by her side. After the network known for hosting Deen’s shows like Paula’s Home Cooking and Paula’s Best Dishes dropped the cook amidst the recent N-word controversy, her fans are attempting her rescue. Or at least showing her support.
A “We Support Paula Deen” Facebook page has been created and already has more than 200,000 “likes.” The Facebook page for Deen was created by a supporter, who wrote: “Recently Food Network personality Paula Deen has issued an apology for statements that she has made in the past. Let’s support her as she moves forward from this time. Paula is a person just like all of us and we all make mistakes.”
