When you throw a pebble into the water, it causes a splash. When the splash settles down, ripples develop that push surrounding water outwards, moves it, causes an aptly named “ripple effect.” This metaphor is used in many situations to describe the fact that actions often have more consequences than the initial one.
For Paula Deen, this metaphor has become evidently clear as the termination of a single employee has caused a nationwide controversy. The ripple effect has caused her business empire to begin to crack and crumble.
