Shame on you, Food Network!

http://dancingthruyears.com/2013/06/23/come-on-now-food-network-really/

If you have been following my blog for awhile you will remember my disappointment with the handling of the discrimination lawsuit against Paula Deen. I have kept my word and not watched any of my favorite shows on Food Network since I received news of this suit.

You will also note that this lawsuit has been dropped! http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2013/08/23/lawyers-agree-to-drop-paula-deen-discrimination-lawsuit/

How sad that Paula Deen had to go through all of this hurt, pain and disappointment and that her employer would not stand by her (as honest as she was), but instead chose to drop her like a hot potato (excuse the pun).

I’m praying and seeking the right attitude regarding you, Food Network. I know I must forgive you. But, right now I hope you are hanging your heads in shame!

    My heart also went out to Paula Deen…who among us has not said the wrong thing at the wrong time. But, few of us have done so and been so humiliated before millions as Ms. Deen has. I hope that the network has half the class that Ms. Deen does and resolves it’s issues with her!

      I couldn’t agree more, but doubt that it will happen. Her naysayers will just want to sweep it under the rug and pretend it didn’t happen, I’m sure.

    All those sponsors that dropped her so quick now must eat crow! I see that Walmart has quietly replaced her baked goods in the bakery and her cookware is now back on the shelf. I’m still waiting for some apologies to Paula. Her true fans have stuck by her and she will come through this with God’s help, stronger than ever!

      Oh, I’m glad to hear that Walmart has put her stuff back on the shelves, but you are right – they all owe her an apology. I think I will buy alot more Paula Deen stuff for Christmas presents this year, how bout you?
