‘More Offensive Than the N-Word’: Paula Deen’s Son Posts Photo of Him Kissing Employee ‘Forced’ to Dress Up Like Aunt Jemima

Paula Deen’s son and fellow cooking show host Jamie Deen has re-ignited the racism accusations that have surrounded his family after last year’s “N-word scandal” with photos of him kissing an African-American employee who was previously reportedly “forced” to dress up like Aunt Jemima.

On Friday, Deen posted the photo on Twitter, writing “Don’t tell [my wife] Brooke. #jellyroll #sugar.”

The woman in the photo is Ineata “Jellyroll” Jones, an employee of the Deens who found herself at the center of last year’s scandal.

In 2013, The Columbus Dispatch reported that “Deen used Jones for restaurant theater. At 11 am, when the doors opened at Lady & Sons, she stood in front and rang an iron dinner bell.”

The paper also reported that “Deen wanted Jones to dress in an old-style Aunt Jemima outfit.”

Florida Mom Kidnaps Her Own Kid So She Doesn’t Have to Learn Black History

“She didn’t want Lilly to learn about black history. She just wanted her to learn about the Confederacy,” Lilly’s dad said.

Court records suggest that Lilly’s actions were due in part to her new relationship with a man who is described as “a Confederate-flag-waving gun enthusiast.”

When authorities contacted the new boyfriend, he denied knowing where Megan was but informed federal agents that Megan was aware of the costs of her actions but thought is was worth it to ‘save’ her daughter.

“Lesters [the new boyfriend] informed detectives that Everett … knew she would have to live her life as a fugitive. However, in her mind, the time that she spent with her daughter ‘free’ of Baumann would be ‘worth it,’ regardless of how brief the time was,” the documents read.

Megan’s family, though, just wants her to bring Lilly back.

Bus Driver Shot Himself, Made Up Story That His Bible Stopped Bullets in ‘Hate Attack’ by ‘3 Black Men’

In February, 49-year-old Rickey Wagoner claimed that three black men assaulted him outside of his bus but two of their bullets were stopped by a Bible in his pocket, though he was shot in the leg and stabbed in the arm.

Wagoner also told police he pried the gun away from the “assailants” and shot at the men as they ran. He even went as far as to say that he thought it may have been a gang initiation.

In the 911 call, Wagoner says “I’ve been hit in the leg. My chest feels like I’ve been hit with a sledgehammer.”

He later told police that one of the suspects said to another that he must “shoot a polar bear…if you want to be all the way in the club.”

Of course, that was all a lie.


Police arrested 40 suspects as part of a massive 145-count indictment of 103 people in a range of crimes, including the murder of 18-year-old basketball star Tayshana “Chicken” Murphy, 19 shootings, gang assaults, beatings and conspiracy. Of the remaining suspects, 39 were already in custody, including Murphy’s brother, while the others remain at large.

In a press conference later Tuesday afternoon, NYPD Police Chief William J. Bratton and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said the teens and men rounded up at the two housing projects are members of 3Staacs gang and their rivals, the Make It Happen Boys and Money Avenue. Residents said the suspects grew up together and are friends with affinities to their houses, and are not part of anything resembling a formal gang.

“The terror that the many thousands of people who live there must have felt over these last several years,” Bratton said explaining his presence at the early-morning raid during a press conference at 1 Police Plaza in downtown Manhattan Wednesday afternoon. “They’re not fighting over drug turf, it’s just mindless, senseless violence.”

  1. Well just reading all this idiocy from these links does anyone think we are living in post racial America? I really wish we could do away with that word, there is no such thing.

  2. So the woman in the photograph is the one Paula Deen want to dress up like a mammy? That’s what I’m talking about, some black folks co-signing with that ignorance in 2014. I know jobs are hard to come by for people with limited job skills, I don’t know if this is all she can do. I don’t know her story of why she is still working for these fools. Bless her, i hope she can find other employment where she has some dignity. I could not be a patron of that business. That should have had black people outraged everywhere.

  3. You forgot to talk about the good looking criminal everyone is going crazy about. That to me is some sickness, i am just saying. it’s interesting though, I wonder what psychologist and sociologist would say about this? He is good looking but women will ruin their credit and screw up their lives for a good looking bottom feeder. I am shaking my head.

  4. The crazy mother kidnapping her daughter because she doesn’t want her to learn about black history or get vaccinated. Child Protective services should be called. The mother is a straight up lunatic. I feel sorry for the poor child that has her for a mother. her head will be filled with fear and ignorance. I am shaking my head about this. Another generation of racist will be born.

  5. Hernith, mentioned Pharelle , and his crazy “New Black” idiocy, I used to like him because i liked his music. Maybe he should just shut up and just sing. He annoys me. He must live in some kind of alternate universe. I guess where he lives in his world everybody is singing the “Happy Song.”

  6. Yes, Dave ain’t doin’ nothin’ but telling it like it T-I-S, all day every day-and rose-colored glass wearers like Pharell need to clean their lenses and see the truth! Kidnapping her kid just to avoid her finding out (real) Black history, that right there my dear fellow POC is all you need know about the lengths and heights these fearful, weak losers will go to just keep their sense of feeling “superior” (hahaha)-damn racism is such a drug for these mofo’s they act like they can’t properly function without it! X-D

  7. P.S. Shut uP Paula Deen and Co. already, all that butter must have gone to all of ya’ll’s brains, and what is the deal with the nutter azz bus driver-was he trying to get early retirements benefits, or what?!?

    1. I think it’s beginning to show that the ‘blame the black man’ ploy is slowly but surely dying, especially when you can rely on experts in wounds.

  8. That certainly seems to be the case in the past decade or so it seems, and while I still haven’t found out why the dummy did it, at least technology is bustin’ these lyin’ azz idiots out!
