The allegations of racism toward Paula Deen have unleashed more Twitter activity than Amanda Bynes at a wig factory.
Some of the funniest material is from regular old folks who jumped on the #PaulasBestDishes hashtag with stuff like, “Lynchables,” “Emmett Tilapia,” “You Hear White Folk Talkin You Better Hushpuppies,” “You Better Not Take One of Them Homefries,” and “Apple Brown Betty V. Board of Education.”
Some folks were just angry, like Big Hard Sun, who tweeted, “Why couldn’t Paula Deen catch a heart attack instead of James Gandolfini?”
Amid public calls for her dismissal, The Food Network released a statement saying it “does not tolerate any form of discrimination” and “will continue to monitor the situation.”
