Paula Deen Fires Social Media Manager Over Brownface Photo

by at .

Paula Deen is very sorry for coming across like a racist once again.

The celebrity chef, who came under fire two years ago when it was revealed via deposition that she had often used the N-Word, deleted a Twitter photo yesterday not long after receiving a great deal of criticism over it.

That's because it features Deen's son dressed up in brownface, acting like Ricky Ricardo from I Love Lucy.

"Paula Deen's Social Media Manager posted a picture this morning of Paula and Bobby Deen dressed in costume as Lucy and Ricky, from I Love Lucy," said Deen's reps in response to the flap.

"This photograph is from a Halloween episode of Paula’s Best Dishes that aired in 2011."

The statement went on to say how Deen has taken action against the person responsible for sharing the picture:

"Paula immediately had this picture taken down as soon as she saw the post and apologizes to all who were offended.

"As such, Paula Deen Ventures has terminated their relationship with this Social Media Manager."
