News of Paula Deen's emergence from the underground she was relegated to for racial remarks she made long ago have blown up the social media universe.

Commenters on Good Morning America's Facebook page, among others, have served up a healthy serving of support for Deen, a Georgia native who had been a staple on the Food Network for more than a decade.

Deen's public problems began in June, when it became known that she admitted during a legal deposition that she had used a racial slur.

The Food Network dropped her, and then her publisher, Ballantine Books, did the same.

Good Morning America reports Paula Deen Ventures, which includes Paula Deen Foods and Paula Deen Media, have received between $75 million and $100 million from investment firm Najafi Companies.

What do you think? Is it time for Paula Deen to make her comeback? Tell us in comments below.

@cathy swanson Did you go with Paula Deen to Lowe's because you agree with her racism or you felt she had been unjustly dropped by Home Depot because of her racism?

Why Not? Let her come back? I see her fans and her style, not what she said or did in the past.

She should have never been taken off tv and all the other things that happened to her. Clean your plank out of your own eye before cleaning someone elses!! I am very glad she is back.

She could handled it better. I don't see any reason why she should not come back. She didn't break any laws.
