Paula Deen has apparently not learned her lesson from the N-word scandal of 2013, because Tuesday (July 7) she posted a photo of herself and son Bobby dressed as Lucy and Desi Arnaz as part of “Transformation Tuesday” — and her son went the full nine yards, wearing brownface to impersonate the famous Cuban actor/singer.

The photo is actually from a 2011 Halloween episode of “Paula’s Best Dishes,” but that doesn’t make it any less racist, then or now.

Twitter is, naturally, having a field day with the ill-advised tweet from Deen — who has since deleted it from her Twitter account.

A request from Deen’s rep for comment has not been returned at this time.
