Watch Late Night Hosts Make Fun of Paula Deen

Last night late night hosts including Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon tore into Paula Deen after she got fired following her botched apology for her racist deposition. It's a little curious that Jay Leno would mock Paula Deen at all. Deen is a regular guest on The Tonight Show; it frequently gets a little raunchy with sexy antics (see appearances from May 2010, and October 2010, and October 2011). Deen also used Leno's show to further her diabetes diagnosis misinformation campaign and doughnut-hamburger revisionism. Leno is (or was) a devout Paula Deen apologist, much like the Today show. But now that she no-showed on Today on Friday, they've turned on her, too. Here are clips from Fallon, Leno, and Totally Biased:

The Food Network announced that it is firing celebrity chef Paula Deen after she admitted to using racial slurs. She defended herself, saying she was born 60 years ago in a different time. Then all the 60 year olds were like, "No, you're just racist."

What a bad week for the stock market. Today was better, yesterday though, yesterday was bad. I tell you, the numbers looked worse than a Paula Deen talk show on BET. That's how bad the numbers were.
