Although her new cookbook ranked at number one four months before its release date, her publisher (Ballantine) dropped her anyway. This is a list of other companies who dropped her:
She was also dropped from deals with Smithfield Foods, QVC, Walmart, Caesars Entertainment, Target, Novo Nordisk, Home Depot, J.C. Penny, Sears, and KMart.
In contrast, Alec Baldwin, who has many anger management incidents, including calling his own young daughter a pig. Most recently, he had a anti-gay rage rant/threat against a journalist in England. Then, there was the Words with Friends battle on the airline.
He also called a black journalist who said something to inflame him, a "coon" -- Seriously??? In this day and age and we've still got him endorsing companies, no problem. That is disgusting and such a double-standard. I find that word JUST as offensive.
Then, there's Tiger Woods and his endless list of sins. Still endorsing all things golf. What's up with the double standard? Do you think it's because Paula Deen is a woman? I assume Tiger Woods keeps his endorsements because he can still golf. So people can obviously separate who he is from the game he plays.
I assume Paula can still cook. So what's the difference?
