Paula Deen in Hot Water Again After Son Poses in 'Brown Face'

By    |   Wednesday, 08 Jul 2015 08:02 AM

Celebrity chef Paula Deen finds herself in hot water again after kicking up a Twitter firestorm for posing with her son who wore "brown face" in an "I Love Lucy" themed social media photo.

Deen posted the photo of her dressed up as Lucy Ricardo and her son Bobby Deen as Ricky Ricardo under hashtag #TransformationTuesday, noted The Hollywood Reporter. The photo read, ""Lucyyyyyyy! You got a lot of esplainin' to do," a popular line from the their iconic television show.

 


What angered many on social media was Bobby Deen apparently painting his face brown in order to portray Ricky Ricardo, played in real life by Desi Arnaz, a Cuban. The website Eater.com said the photo was first posted back in March 2011 for Deen's show "Paula's Best Dishes."

The tweet was deleted on Tuesday.

Many didn't find much humor in the Ricky Ricardo portrayal.


Deen found supporters on social media, as well.
