False Rumor: Paula Deen Blamed 'the Jews' for Firing

An Internet rumor claims that celebrity chef Paula Deen, in an radio interview, blamed "the Jews" for her recent firing from the Food Network.  There is no truth to this rumor.

The rumor, which has been circulated on some Internet sites as a "news report," claimed that Ms. Deen made the comments in an appearance on an Atlanta radio show.  But, in fact, the host and the radio program mentioned in these articles do not exist.

The rumor originated with a satirical article posted on a humor web site, "The Daily Currant."
