    Re: Paula Deen Fired

    [QUOTE=DiAnna;1061968966]Here is the entire post I made, in context maybe I am missing something, but the context here seems to do nothing to change nothing in relation to my quotation and reference to your post


    Asking other posters to explain an "allegation" by another poster is disingenuous at best
    I didn't ask him to explain it, he took issue with my response to it


    when you also take what was clearly labeled as my personal opinion and distort it by deliberate edit so that you can present it as an allegation
    You seem to be raising a distinction without a difference here. Regardless if it was your personal opinion, or not, you are still making an alligation


    Please don't do this with my posts again.
    You mean point out baseless allegations? Then don't make them

    Some stupid cook got fired from her show for saying the 'N' word?

    Sadly PC, but overall, I don't really care.

    Not being racist isnt being pc. It's being a decent human.

    Firing someone for apparently using he 'n' word years ago (which is my understanding of what happened) is being PC.
    What someone says or does on their own time (providing it is legal) is none of your employer's business.
    She was a cook after all...not a preacher.

    In this case, I realize that PC correctness is pathetically important to TV producers...so firing her was probably a given.
    But I still say it is none of their business.

    Decent human being's don't fire people for what they legally do in their private lives.
    It may have been fiscally prudent of them to fire her - but it had little/nothing to do with decency, IMO.

    If you think most entertainment producers do things out of decency - you are extremely naive.
    They probably fired her for greed and profit...no other reason (IMO).

    Meh, a better example would be the guys that got chopped down for using black hole and niggardly. It's just nearly impossible to feel sorry for PD, though

    I could be wrong, but I think it means that they're not renewing her contract

    In reality, she wasn't fired. Her contract was not renewed

    Some people see emotions that are not there. I think it's their frustration with people (like you) who are not as emotional as they are.
