Butter Campaign ‘Sticking’ Up For Paula Deen Posted by: Dan | 0 Comments

A group of Paula Deen supporters have started a butter wrapper campaign in support of the former Food Network cooking star.

According to a story on, fans are ‘sending butter wrappers with letters to companies like the Food Network, Sears, JCPenney, QVC, and others that have stopped working with Deen in the wake of her now-infamous racist testimony and the subsequent media shitstorm. According to CNN, the butter “wrappers are intended as signs of protest — physical declarations of ‘we’re sticking with Paula.'” The group is calling itself Butter for Paula, and as of today they have over 600,000 likes on their Facebook page.'”

They say Paula was “unjustly vilified” by the media. And have worked up a form letter for fans and Deen supporters to send to companies like the Food Network, Walgreens and Wal-Mart.

Dear Butter Wrapper Recipient,

Each butter wrapper that you receive represents the voice of millions of loyal Paula Deen fans across America. A company without Paula, is like a butter wrapper without butter. We’re ashamed and outraged at the media’s careless and negligent handling and reporting which has caused pain and devastation in so many innocent lives. We insist that Scripps Network (Food Network, Great American Country – GAC, Cooking Channel) bring Paula back into our living rooms, and that each and every retailer, including QVC, restock Paula Deen product lines. Many supporters have suspended purchasing products from these corporations, and have discontinued viewing Food Network shows, and many more will follow.


As for why they support her, she’s family. Butter for Paula says, “Paula Deen has become a part of our families… and families stick together. She was removed from our lives as the result of a calculated media smear campaign, and while she’s been exonerated ten-times over, the damage has been done. Now, it’s up to Paula’s fans to take a stand, and let the corporations and the media know that dropping Paula Deen products and television shows IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.”

Does Paula Deen feel like family to you?
