WTF Food Network? You fire Paula Deen for racist remarks but, day in and day out, air multiple episodes of The Pioneer Woman who posts equally offensive statements on her blog about blacks and Caucasians. Since when did it become acceptable to refer to Caucasians as “whitey” and “vanilla?” And when has it ever been appropriate to stereotype blacks as soul food eating, gospel singers from large families? As one of our readers aptly noted, all Ree left out were the watermelon and fried chicken references.
Therefore, without further ado, let us be the first to congratulate the Pioneer Woman for being the hands-down winner of the 2013 What’s Posted on the Internet Remains on the Internet Gold Medal. A heartfelt thanks to both Alex and Poppy who unearthed Ree’s 2006 My Black Grandpa post. Unlike Drummond’s posts about her “retarded brother,” My Black Grandpa hasn’t been deleted…yet. Be forewarned, My Black Grandpa will suffer the same fate if it poses a potential donnybrook for Food Network.
Our apologies for the poor quality photos. Given the Pioneer Woman’s history for petitioning Google to remove cached copies of deleted posts, we thought it best to preserve the evidence with screen shots taken from a mobile device. While no one can be certain what Drummond’s motivation was in posting this tripe, it appears she was either (1) trying to be humorous
and failed or she was (2) driving home the fact she thinks Bartlesville, population 40,000, Oklahoma, is the Hamptons of the Midwest and wants the world to know what a rich, spoiled snob she is. So which is it Ree, are you a little ol’ ranch wife, a golf-course brat or just a plain racist?
In other news first tweeted by “Charlie,” we are now learning that the Drummonds recently purchased a new abode in Tulsa. And c’mon, don’t all vanilla little ol’ ranch wives own multiple homes? What inquiring minds want to know: will this be used to house the Pacific Productions UK crew when the Food Network morons order more episodes of The Pioneer Woman’s Swing-A-Way adventures or will this become Ladd’s man cave when he’s banished to the dog house? More importantly, does it come with a black grandpa too?
