JC Penney and Sears just dropped Paula Deen. That shouldn’t come as much of a shock. They are the eighth and ninth companies to drop her this week. The Daily Beast’s Daniel Gross explains the demise: “In business, it’s OK to be a sexist, a felon, or an adulterer. But a racist? Uh-uh.” I guess all we need now is a cheating, sexist ex-con to take Deen’s place. Experience drowning everything in butter a plus.
