Hours after a controversial photo appeared on Paula Deen's Twitter account, the TV chef has fired her social media manager and apologized to her fans.
In the photo, Deen and her son Bobby were dressed as Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Bobby, 45, was wearing skin-darkening makeup.
After a vitriolic Twitter backlash, the photo was deleted.
"Paula Deen's Social Media Manager posted a picture this morning of Paula and Bobby Deen dressed in costume as Lucy and Ricky, from I Love Lucy," her reps said in a statement to PEOPLE. "This photograph is from a Halloween episode of Paula’s Best Dishes that aired in 2011."
