Paula Deen Does It Again! Compares Her Struggles To Michael Sam "That Black Football Player" And Digs Herself Into A Deeper Hole

paula deen michael sam comeback black gay nfl


You've been on your "comeback" for about 30 seconds and you're already saying shizz like this?? Do you think $75 million grew on trees??

Not only did Paula compare her own "struggle" (which she earned fair and square) with Michael Sam's struggle as the first openly gay NFL hopeful — but she also found some new 'empathy' inside of her… empathy for other figures going through controversy, like that homophobic Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson!

If you've forgotten, Paula's empire came to a halt last year after she admitted to using the N-word during a trial. She's now trying to rise from the ashes like a Phoenix. A Phoenix that says horrible things from time to time.

Here's what she said:

“I feel like ‘embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out. He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying.”

Do you think he wants to be known as "that black" football player too??

This is when she took a step further in the wrong direction, by pointing out that Phil Robertson and Nigella Lawson endured scandals last year without any noticeable damage to their careers, and that she has a newfound “empathy” for people hounded by the media.

Well, we mean — it's not like they're being scrutinized for no reason!

She said:

“It’s amazing that some people are given passes and some people are crucified. I have new empathy for these situations, though. My dad always told me, ‘Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.’”

We don't know, if this is the kind of public presence that $75-$100 million from private equity firm Najafi Cos. gets for their money, we might want it back if we were them!

We don't even know what to say!

    STFU with your PCness, Perez. Earlier this week you said that all gay men have a "fierce black woman inside them." And when WOC called you out on it you talked shit to them and compared them to Hitler. And of course you cried homophobia because people DARED to call you out on your bullshit.
    Maybe you should look at yourself and your faults before you rip on celebrities. You don't get a free pass.

    Why are you making a big deal out of this? She couldn't remember the guys name! I can't believe you are trying to make an issue out of this. Also, if her investor has 75 mill to kick around I highly doubt he needs any money advice from you!

    Didn't think what she said was inappropriate IMO.

    Clearly you can't educate the utterly stupid…This woman is a disgrace and she needs to crawl back under the racist and uneducated rock she crawled out under. What this idiot needs is to do is if she isn't talking about food then STU. Nothing worthy comes out of her moronic mouth

    Jesus Christ you really are ignorant as fuck! She couldn't remember the damn man's name! SHUT THE FUCK UP already Perez!

And no one said anything about that.Its FUNNY.And my WHITE KID plays BLACK music that uses the N word every third word so who gives a shit.

    Re: brenda

    She simply could have said " It's like that football player that just recently came out." Pretty simple… She needs to re-learn how to use those brain cells instead of simply letting the words freely flow from her mouth. She is her own enemy.

    Re: brenda – If you can't even bother to remember the name of the player you're comparing yourself to but you sure remember to point out his RACE you just might be a racist. Your favorite butterball chef is RIDICULOUS to consider that she's anything like Michael Sam who can't change his race or his sexuality while she could certainly change her Racist beliefs. It's not like she was born with the INABILITY NOT TO SAY THE N WORD.

    She's not only a racist, she's dumb. Paula Deen will never change because this is who she is! This is common knowledge around the people who work for her, but they are still afraid to talk.

    If I was her new investor I would sever my relationship as soon as possible. This is not going to end here - she can't stop being who she is.
