SVU Doing The Most: 'Paula Deen' Shoots 'Trayvon Martin' in 'Law & Order: SVU' Episode


Duhn-duhn...A Paula Deen-esque celebrity chef will shoot an unarmed, hoodie-wearing black teen she believes is following her in an upcoming episode of "Law & Order: SVU," an individual with knowledge of the episode told TheWrap on Friday. Cybill Shepherd will star as the Deen-esque celebrity chef Jolene Castille, who claims self-defense, saying that she'd heard police were on the hunt for a rapist who fit the victim's description.

The episode draws from two real-life incidents that brought racial tensions in America to the fore. Unarmed Florida teen Martin was fatally shot by neighborhood watch member George Zimmerman in 2012. Zimmerman was acquitted in the subsequent controversial trial earlier this year. Deen, who specializes in Southern-style cooking, saw her media empire crumble this year after it was revealed in a lawsuit deposition that she had used the N-word. The "Law & Order: SVU" episode will air in October.


Mods, the last post didn't include the Paula Deen-like character info.

I wonder if it'll be worse than the Puerto Rican Day parade episode they did a long time ago?

Oh lord. This is gonna be ridiculous. Whatever happened to cpt craigen and the dude chick in his bed. Did he end up getting fired or what?

I don't think so. He got arrested and then exonerated. Then he was under investigation so they had a new temporary captain. He's back now though.

I feel terrible for Trayvon's family having to deal with this, but... this is going to be a mess in the best way possible.

OMG, my best friend actually works on this show tangentially and has told me that pretty much everybody just shows up for the paycheck, and with stories like this it is evident why.

i know the show is shitty, but i love it, so it's still sad to hear that.
kwikimart 24th-Aug-2013 12:38 pm (UTC)
Even more reason to cancel it
The way they exploit rape/abuse survivors stories on there is gross
