Paula Deen compares herself to Michael Sam and the internet vomits.

Paula Deen makes another mess of it again…

It seems Paula Deen has a predilection towards self sabotage. Case in point her latest interview with People magazine where one imagines the disparaged Southern belle racist may have sought to win back public support after last year’s scandal, but some ill-worded statements only served to put the chef in the spotlight again—and not in the best way.

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

Here’s how the Internet reacted (see twitter screen shots below). Puke at your leisure and rest assured Paula Deen is the self sabotaging racist who can never atone for her sins.

Personally this comment on the web pretty much summed up my sentiments:

What a ridiculous comparison: trying to comparison herself — someone who had s helped perpetuate discrimination — to someone who is fighting discrimination. Deen simply proves that she doesn’t get it and never will. I thought that I had already lost all respect for her; apparently not, because after these remarks I loathe her even more.

Paula Deen will never use the word nigger again. Suffers more losses.

Paula Deen’s apology means shit. Dropped yet again…

Paula Deen tells Matt Lauer she does not like niggers at all.

Did Paula Deen turn up drunk on the Today show?
