Walmart: Drops Paula Deen Over N-Word but Embraces Kid Rock?

Same day. Same confession. Different outcomes.

I’m referring to June 19, 2013, a day Paula Deen will never forget. That’s the date when her use of the n-word 30-years ago made headlines prompting corporate sponsors to cut Paula’s endorsement deals worth more than $12.5 million.

On the same day, Kid Rock appeared on Howard Stern where Rock admitted:

We all use the n-word. We call each other the n-word all the time. We cut it up. My dentist’s name is Taco. We say stuff like that all the time ‘What’s up my ni66er?’ We’re just living up pop-culture. We just call it like it is, like band members do in privacy.

Shock jock Stern went on to ask whether or not Kid Rock used the n-word around his son—who happens to be half black. Answer? “Why can’t I say the n-word to him?” Nice.

Ironically, not a peep from the same press that skewered Paula Deen about this double standard. What’s more, not one sponsor has backed away from Kid Rock. Not Harley-Davidson. Not Jim Bean. Oh, and not Walmart—which is selling tickets for his current beer-buzz tour.

Let me get this straight. Walmart drops all of Paula Deen’s products because she used the n-word once three decades ago, but has no qualms about selling Kid Rock tickets who admits using the word “all the time” today.

Hey Mike Duke (President and CEO of Walmart) . . . you’re needed at the office.
