Paula Dean Compares Her Struggle to That Gay Black Football Player


Paula Dean

Someone has to take Paula Dean’s microphone from her.

Every time she speaks, she is putting her foot in her mouth. This isn’t the best way to make a comeback after offending a lot over the summer with her use of the N-word.

But, because this is America, she just received $75 million in funding for a new TV show, I would suggest whoever is financing her get her a PR person ASAP.  Here is what she had to say to People Magazine.

In the interview, the celebrity cook and restaurateur compared her recent struggles to those of college football player Michael Sam, who is the NFL’s first openly gay prospect.

“I feel like ’embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out,” Deen said, according to “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.”

This is going to go over lovely.


  1. what was wrong with her comment? well maybe it was the fact that she said “black football player” instead of just “football player”. according to her OWN statement it’s bad enough that he just can’t be known as a “football player” and not “gay football player”. BUT, i guess she thought it SHOULD be made known he was black though. i mean it’s not like she ever said anything bad about black folk right???
