Paula Deen received hilarious replies when she asked on Thursday via Twitter what people's favorite potluck dishes are. Facebook

Paula Deen cannot catch a break, after being labeled a racist for recently admitting she used the N-word and called black people “slaves” in the past. The disgraced Food Network star tried to interact with her Twitter fans on Thursday, asking, “My favorite potluck dish is _____ RT me your answer!” But Deen is likely regretting her tweet and PR team, after people on Twitter replied in a comical but mocking way.

 

 

 

Unfortunately, this is not the first time Deen has become the butt of jokes on Twitter. Immediately after admitting to using racist language last month, there was backlash on Twitter, and users used the hashtag #PaulasBestDishes to share racist puns.

Deen was fired from the Food Network last month after admitting to using racist jokes in a sworn deposition filed in U.S. District Court for a pending case involving a former employee. The 66-year-old has since apologized, and, in a statement obtained by CNN, she thanked the Food Network for 11 years on air. 

“I have had the pleasure of being allowed into so many homes across the country and meeting people who have shared with me the most touching and personal stories," she said. "This would not have been possible without the Food Network. Thank you again. Love and best dishes to all of y'all.
