Social Media Roasts Paula Patton For Her Awkward Fried Chicken Recipe


y’all come watch paula make chicken 🤦🏾‍♀️

♬ Italian Dinner Party – Italian Restaurant Music of Italy

Paula Patton is getting obliterated on social media for a fried chicken recipe that the Four Kids and It star had posted to her Instagram last month.

The controversial recipe was initially posted on March 4, yet began trending on social media after TikTok user @thetrackqueen, AKA Olympic medalist, Ashley Spencer, gave her own recap of the awkward fried chicken tutorial.

Off the jump Patton gets called out for the way she washed (or didn’t wash) her raw chicken, then continues to violate fried chicken protocol by failing to season the flour and then seasoning the chicken while it’s frying in the oil — which of course, will burn the spices and render them useless. Patton then slices into a piece of chicken, revealing undercooked, pinkish meat.

Social media was swift with their condemnation with Twitter and TikTok roasting the ‘famous fried chicken’ recipe that Patton learned from her mother.

“Paula, don’t eat that,” pleaded Spencer on the above TikTok clip.

Thankfully this story wasn’t all bad vibes, as it lead folks to chime in with their own surefire and foolproof fried chicken recipes. Let’s hope Paula Patton rolls with the punches on this one and takes notes on the reliable recipes shared.

Perhaps taking a look at Los Angeles’ best fried chicken can help cleanse ourselves of this unfortunate recipe.

Watch Saweetie and H.E.R. List Their Top 3 Filipino Dishes

Hit R&B songstress H.E.R. and rapper Saweetie have always repped hard for their Filipino heritage, as both stars have Filipino mothers. On a recent IG Live this past February, they both broke down their top 3 Filipino foods.

Both started off showing their love for sinigang, a tamarind-based soup, followed by extra crispy lumpia, which are fried spring rolls. The two then cycle through some other popular dishes like adobo and kare kare, before seeming to settle on pancit, which make up a variety of noodle dishes, as the third.

Though they did seem to match up with their favorites, there was one Filipino food that Saweetie couldn’t make the connection with.

“I don’t like ube,” Saweetie sheepishly confessed.

“Aight, that’s one thing we don’t have in common,” laughed H.E.R.

I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with McDonald’s catchy “I’m Lovin’ It” jingle. One can say that the tune itself is iconic, cementing its legacy as synonymous with the Golden Arches. But did you know that hit rapper, Pusha T, co-wrote the jingle back in 2003?

“I’m the reason the whole world love it, now I gotta crush it. Filet-O-Fish is shit and you should be disgusted,” seethed Pusha T on the opening lines of the song.

“The Crispy Fish Sandwich blazin’ trails. Them other clowns just too frail.”

Pusha T with the mic drop. Your move, Ronald.
