Paula Deen refers to Michael Sam as 'That black football player' when talking about her troubles

To this day, especially since last summer, we’re not quite sure why former TV cooking enthusiast is allowed to speak publicly but, well, she was at it again, and this time she dragged future NFL player Michael Sam into her bundle of terrible remarks.

While speaking about her struggles since last summer in using the N-word in a recent interview, she tried to compare what she went through to what Sam is currently going through since publicly proclaiming that he’s gay, and let’s just say it didn’t come out right at all.

Actually, it was terrible seeing as she referred to Sam as “that black football player.”

“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.”

Again, if there is a logical reason as to why this woman is still allowed to make public comments, I’d seriously like to know.
