In response to massmoderateJoe's comment:
Progressives and MSM love to make an example and excoriate people like Deen. You know southern conservative traditional people who sometimes fall back to the language of their parents at times of tension and frustration, like when a black man points a gun at your head during a robbery. On the other hand funny people who make a living making fun of traditional people who sometimes fall back on their own deep biases get a pass, well because we (MSM) like them.
Baldwin has a history of angry rants, bashing his own daughter, aggressively going after the papparazzi (well somewhat justified) and now he trashes a tabloid reporter with homophibic rants for outing his wife for tweetng during Gandolfini's funeral.
Deen a nice southern women hawking her southern cooking gets pummeled for an admitted N bomb back in the eighties when describing he rbeing robbed with a gun being pointed at her by a blackman, who by the way is upset with what's happened to Deen.
I know which one I'd rather see move to Canada; he threatened to before so let's encourage him now.

"Deen a nice southern woman" et.
Paula Deen incarnates the whole "steel magnolia" archetype, with razor-sharp toughness beneath the flutter and the filigree.
"I is what I is" she said in her weepy exculpation on the "Today" show.
And that is fine. Go ahead, be what you be. Just DO NOT try to make everyone else responsible.
Like I thought you'd ignore Baldwin's transgressions but hold Deen to some higher standard, due to your personal biases. Just calling a pointed shovel a pointed shovel.
