15 Celebrity Mistakes That Almost Ruined Companies
Posted in Lifestyle on Jan 16th, 2019
Celebrities have it pretty easy when it comes to making an extra buck. After all, when your face is what makes you famous, companies are clamoring to supply you with as much green as you want. Most of the time it's a case of turn up, flash a smile, and cash the check. Easy, right? Well, not the way these stars did it. The good news is that when it comes to celebrity bloopers, the internet will never let them forget.
15. Paula Deen
It was a shock for all of us to realize Paula might be anything other than, well, buttery goodness. Instead of being that sweet southern gramma those of us not from the south always dreamed of having, it turns out Ms. Deen has a potty mouth and some seriously questionable takes on race. In 2013, Paula admitted that she’d used a racial slur. It then also came out that Deen had considered hosting a “true Southern plantation-style theme” where the servers would be black men but decided against it “because the media would be on me about that.” This less than sweet talk caused endorsers to flee, restaurants to close, and book deals to evaporate.
