Several stars have got into trouble for not thinking before speaking, with some losing out on valuable endorsements and jobs. Racial remarks are also one of the things that have caused a bevy of celebrities to lose their money and work. In 2013, Paula Deen used racial slurs that considerably damaged her reputation. Many of her publishing deals and endorsement contracts got cancelled by Target, Walmart, Sears, Home Depot, and QVC, among other companies. Apart from her, actor Alec Baldwin and Mel Gibson also faced criticism over racist comments that they made.
