A comic book version of the drama-filled Paula Deen controversy? That sounds like a complete nightmare! But Bluewater Products has given the go-ahead to continue with a biography comic project involving the rise and fall of the former Food Network star.
Paula Deen’s career nosedive in the aftermath of racism allegations is the stuff of excellent (okay, not excellent, but certainly entertaining) television dramas. But comic book material? That just doesn’t seem to fit. Bluewater Products disagrees, however, and is prepared to turn the Paula Deen controversy into a profitable comic biography.
The proposed comic book is nothing new and, in fact, has already been in production for several months. And the recent racism allegations will not delay its publication, although a representative for Bluewater did insist that the company did not approve of Paula’s behavior. “We do not condone her use of racial insensitivities, and think that intolerance has no place in a just society…But despite her recent failings, we also strongly believe she still has a powerful story to tell; one that fits the female empowerment model of our books.”
The latest drama in Paula’s life will be included in the comic, but it will not be the focus. Instead, the bulk of the biography will cover Paula’s impressive rise in the food industry. Writer Michael Troy says that Paula will be portrayed as an “inspirational woman who has suffered much adversity in her life and overcome many obstacles.”
