Paula Deen cleans house: Paula Deen Brownface
Published: July 9, 2015
Paula Deen cleans house: Paula Deen Brownface, Paula Deen is at it again. The food mogul, who was the target of a firestorm of criticism and allegations of racism last year over her use of the N-word, posted a photo to Twitter and Facebook on Tuesday of her son Bobby dressed up in “brownface.”
In the photo – which was quickly deleted – Deen is dressed up as Lucy (Lucille Ball) from I Love Lucy, while Bobby Deen is dressed up as Lucy’s husband, Ricky Ricardo (Desi Arnaz), with brown makeup covering his face. (Arnaz, who died in 1986, was of Cuban descent.)
“Lucyyyyyyy! You got a lot of esplainin’ to do! #TransformationTuesday,” Deen captioned the picture, quoting one of Ricky’s famous catchphrases from the sitcom.
Given her past lapses in judgment, it’s simultaneously unsurprising and unbelievable that Deen would think it’s acceptable to post the photo. What do you think of the post?
