There are certain things you never expect to hear like Michael Jordan is making another comeback or this gem– Paula Deen compares herself to Michael Sam.
Former Missouri defensive end is attempting to become the first openly gay athlete in the NFL. Former celebrity chef and cooking show host Paula Deen pretty much lost it all thanks to the scandal exploded when she admitted to using a racial slur in a deposition. Apparently the former Queen of Butter thinks the two are a lot alike.
“I feel like ‘embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out,” Deen said, according to TheWrap.com. “He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying.”
Deen lost her cooking show and just about every endorsement deal that she had after her casual use of a racial slur, and is in the process of working her back in to the public’s graces. Thanks to a $75 million investment from a private company she is looking to get back to work.
However, after making this statement her return may hit a roadblock; that is unless she is able to explain what she means without coming off in a bad or inappropriate way.
