    Paula Patton's Fried Chicken Recipe Is Making Waves On The Internet...For All The Wrong Reasons

    This...was not the dream that MLK was preaching about...

    Not too long ago, Paula Patton posted a video to her Instagram account of her making her mother's fried chicken recipe:

    However, it wasn't until TikTok user Ashley Spencer shared a review of her recipe that this became the new ~ hot ~ topic on the internet:


    y’all come watch paula make chicken 🤦🏾‍♀️

    Now, I thought that this was just gonna be a fun video...however, after watching it, I now understand why the internet is having a field day. The first offense was the not-so thorough wash of the chicken:

    The second offense was not seasoning the flour before battering the chicken:

    The most egregious, however, was the SEASONING OF THE CHICKEN IN THE OIL!

    I don't know much about cooking, but I do know that oil should NEVER be that color:

    And the INSIDE of the chicken should never be that color:

    Anyway, this blind react video made its way to Black Twitter and now everyone is weighing in...and by weighing in, I mean making jokes:

    paula patton really set up the girlies with white mothers cuz why would you even tell us that shit was her method?

    "...I'm just simply saying, I come out here to see you prepping the chicken...and [these] are the flavors??? Salt, pepper, and onion powder? I'm not going to eat it, there's no flavor in this house."

    In conclusion:

    When the world comes together to diss Paula Patton’s “fried chicken” #PaulaPatton #FriedChicken
