Likens it to a 'floating nursing home'

(Newser) – Maybe Brandon Branch forgot that tweets are public? Because there must be some such explanation for why Paula Deen's assistant thought it would be a good idea to tweet that the celebrity chef's Royal Caribbean cruise is like "a floating nursing home," complaining that "everyone is 80 and up!" In a series of tweets that have since been deleted, Branch also complained, "My room is also the size of my powder room at home. And no liquor in minibar! I am in a dark place!!!!"

He then asked a friend to come "rescue" him. Apparently someone let Branch know his very public complaints were perhaps not a great idea, because he removed them and kept quiet until later in the cruise, when he got back online and was much more enthusiastic: "Having a fabo lunch at El Cid resort! I have always loved Mexico!! One more day at sea, then home. Been so much fun!"
