Paula Deen actually compared herself to Michael Sam, based on, uh, I have no idea

Paula Deen recently received a $75 to $100 million investment to make her comeback after some bigoted comments she made last year. She started out this new venture by comparing herself to black, gay football player Michael Sam. Seriously. If you’re wondering just exactly what these two people could possibly have in common, sorry, you’re probably not going to find any answers in her quotes.

“I feel like ‘embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out,” Deen said in a People Magazine cover story, which hits newsstands on Friday. “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.”

In other words, Deen does not like being labeled a racist for a slur she swore she used a “very long time ago.”

“I’m fighting to get my name back,” the former Food Network personality said.

This is the world we now live in. If you’re famous enough you can pretty much do and say anything and given enough time (apparently eight months in this case) people will just let everything blow over and you can get back to making money hand over fist. Of course, that requires not doing the same dumbass thing you did to get in trouble in the first place. Paula’s not off to a very good start.
