Paula Deen under fire for photo of son in brownface

Story highlights

  • Paula Deen deletes photo of son Bobby Deen in brownface
  • She ends ties with social media manager

(CNN)Paula Deen has some explaining to do, again.

An image posted on her social media accounts Tuesday showed Deen and her son Bobby dressed as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo from the classic 1950s TV comedy show "I Love Lucy."
It might not have been so bad if Bobby Deen's face was not clearly painted a darker shade of brown than his hands.
    "Lucyyyyyyy! You got a lot of esplainin' to do!" read the caption on the photo, which has been deleted from all her social media accounts.
    Deen, in a statement issued by a spokeswoman, apologized "to all who were offended." She blamed a social media manager for posting the image from a Halloween episode of "Paula's Best Dishes" that aired in 2011.
    "As such, Paula Deen Ventures has terminated their relationship with this Social Media Manager," the statement said.
