As of this afternoon, mega-retailer Walmart is no longer carrying Paula Deen products: no cookbooks, no cookware, and definitely no “finishing butters.” This comes at the end of an especially brutal day for Deen, which included an already widely mocked appearance on the Today Showa scathing column condemning her racism and her food from Steve Cuozzo, and a split with Caesar’s, which will close the four restaurants it co-operates with Deen.

Paula’s ever-faithful fans, however, have taken to Facebook in protest this latest injustice, alternating between blinding rage and attempts to reason with America’s favorite big-box store. Holding nothing back, Deen’s defenders have posted some truly ridiculous stuff all over Walmart’s social media presence, including accusations of reverse racism and pictures of kittens. Click through the gallery for the highlights of the virtual mob, plus one guy who really feels for Walmart’s social media rep.

    Marilyn Marchese Adams makes a fail proof case–Walmart discriminates against white people!

    Karen Lanzetti Murray, Shelby Dunninger and others who say “I’ll never shop there again”!!! Yes you will. You still need toilet paper, tampons and dish soap and you’re not going to pay double the price for it. So stop the drama. Let’s not minimize this. She shouldn’t have said it. So she lost her contracts. That’s it. . The people that say we all say it and question the seriousness of the word, are the ones that aren’t affected by it. And by the way we don’t all say that word behind closed doors or otherwise. So what, there are no consequences for her actions because she’s charming and can cook? Come on now. If it was the other way around there wouldn’t even be a question as to what should be done. It would have been done the day it was said. Remember Little Wayne and his Mountain Dew campaign? She’ll be fine, I’m sure. And more than likely she will learn to think before she speaks.

    Uh oh, now Target and Home Depot dropped too? Walmart and Target will be fine. You all have no choice. With every new apology video or interview she makes herself look like an even bigger clown. Take a seat Paula.

    Wow…people are still claiming that the ONLY reason she was dropped was for using the N word. These people need to stop being ignorant and go read the lawsuit against her, otherwise they need to stop speaking.
