I haven't seen Hamilton in ages. Where has he been hiding?

Geez, there's a blast from the past. I remember when he escorted one of the Byrds to the Academy Awards.

Again, this isn't newsworthy. Paula Deen didn't post it, she sure as heck didn't delete it, and I bet she doesn't know a tweet from a twit.

I just hope she doesn't make the rounds again and ask everyone to throw rocks at her.. Not that the hens on The View don't need something to talk about...

Posting this was harmless but stupid, considering her problems a few years past.

FYIW I don't remember Ricky Ricardo being that dark, although the show was in black & white.

I'm black and I found the picture to be hilarious!

People need to stop getting offended over everything and anything. Life is WAY too short to continuously get offended over different events. I don't ever see offended people having fun, but rather attempting to derail the fun of others. I didn't care about Paula Deen before her "racist" event two years ago, I don't care about this, and I probably won't care about her in the future. What I will do, however, is support her financially by buying her products as a statement against political correctness and being offended.

he sure doesn't look anything like desi arnaz in that 'costume'.

it is kinda racist to just slap on some bronzer to be "hispanic" especially since desi was a very white cuban

0/10 for weak effort

Not funny, but about as offensive as Nick Cannon putting on white face. It could be offensive depending on what the person is doing or saying, but on its own, no big deal.

Once again, it's about context and intention.

I'm not surprised. Paula and apparently her family are very old fashioned and that's the way they see minorities because they are still stuck in the the 1950's. It's not Ricky Ricardo, it's the dark cuban guy who is "different from us"

Of course Paula didn't post that, she probably sends telegraphs instead of tweets to communicate long distance but it's obvious she didn't see anything wrong and participated in the picture. She is stuck in the 1950's when that behavior was commonly accepted.

Her son always looks like that...The last time I saw him on the Food network, I swear he stayed about an hour too long in the tanning lamp. He is going through a major mid life crises.

That picture disgusts me. To think that in this day and age, 2015, we still have people who are so racist and insensitive to the plight of the racially oppressed that they would actually dress up... in a redhead wig and make light of gingers like that! Haven't people of freckled skin and red hair suffered enough?! When will racism end in America?! Did you know that America is the only civilized nation in the world that still airs "I Love Lucy" in syndication? 2015, people, and they're still pushing this racist venom on all of us! Lucille Ball wasn't even a real redhead. She dyed her hair to exploit the plight of the gingers for a cheap laugh. When will our society finally wake up and end this racism?
