Lard, Salt and Sugar also issued statements Monday, indicating that they were “carefully evaluating” their relationship with Deen. “We will be monitoring the situation and the litigation carefully,” a spokesperson for Lard said.

Whether it’s serious analysis or careful corporate comments or comic relief, it’s been almost impossible to avoid talk about Deen’s remarks since they blew up the Internet (including Twitter) last week.
