According to an NBC affiliate in Birmingham, Alabama, Paula Deen was fried for using racial slurs, not fired, like everyone else is reporting. Of course, it's an easy mistake to make since Deen is so often associated with fried food, though the affiliate gets bonus points for also spelling her name incorrectly.

Fried or fired, Deen's fans are still freaking out on Facebook about the announcement.
