(ABC News) The media company that brought you comic books starring Martha Stewart and Hillary Clinton will release a comic about embattled celebrity chef Paula Deen at the urging of her fans.
The Food Network, Wal-Mart and others began dropping Deen after she admitted under oath to using a racial slur in the past. Deen apologized for the “hurtful language” she used.
Will the comic include Deen’s fall from grace? Yes, Bluewater Productions, based in Vancouver, Canada, said in a statement. “The latest controversy will be added to the final draft, but the majority of the comic book will focus on how she became an iconic brand, the challenges of her humble beginnings and the results of bursting certain stereotypes.”
