Glenn Beck doesn't care what Paula Deen says -- and neither should you -- said the radio show host.
"Unless it involves butter, I wouldn't check on Paula Deen for anything," Beck said during his show on Monday.
"The word police have decided that now she's no longer fit to be a cheese sandwich maker on television," the host quipped.
Deen was effectively fired from the Food Network after admitting using the N-word in her past. The channel chose to not renew her expiring contract. Subsequently, Smithfield Foods has also severed its working relationship with the celebrity chef.
Beck compared Deen's firing -- and prior controversial firings -- to McCarthyism. "You don't fire people for what they say. You don't round them up like it's a witch hunt." And yes, Beck was able to drop a "9/11" reference during the discussion.
