Paula Deen Learns Nothing, Post Picture of Son In Brown Face

Move over Rachael, Paula Deen is coming back for her black face racism crown. 

Tuesday morning, the deep-fried dogmatist posted a #TransformationTuesday photo on Twitter, featuring herself as I Love Lucy's Lucy, her former producer Gordon Elliott, and her son Bobby Deen — in brownface — as Ricky. The tweet, which read "Lucyyyyyyy! You got a lot of esplainin' to do! #Transformation Tuesday @BobbyDeen," has since been deleted, but not before it was saved, well, everywhere. (For the record, the photo itself is not a new one: it's actually from the 2011 Halloween episode of her Food Network show, Paula's Best Dishes. Then again, it was no less racist then.)

In 2013, Deen lost nearly all of her business relationships after a former employee sued her claiming sexual and racial discrimination. In the suit, an employee claimed Deen had hired black waiters to dress like "slaves" for a plantation-themed wedding. During the court proceedings, Deen admitted to having used the n-word on multiple occasions.
