Paula Deen Releases Video Apology

Paula Deen Skips Out On Today Show Appearance

Paula Deen is sorry for using the n-word in the past.

The celebrity cook, who canceled an appearance on Today this morning, released a video apology today.

Deen was heavily criticized this week after she admitted to using the n-word in a discrimination lawsuit. Deen said that she was sorry for her behavior and was hoping to learn and grow from this experience.

Deen said: “I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong that I’ve done… I want to learn and grow from this. Inappropriate, hurtful language is totally unacceptable. I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way, but I beg you, my children, my team, my fans, my partners – I beg for your forgiveness. Please forgive me for the mistakes that I’ve made.”

Well, do you forgive her?

Deen is currently being sued by Lisa Jackson, a former manager of Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House, who claims that Paula and her brother created a hostile work environment by using sexual innuendos and racial slurs.

During the deposition, Deen admitted that she had used the n-word in the past.

Deen said: “Yes, of course (I’ve used the n-word). It’s been a very long time.”

Here’s Paula Deen’s video apology.

The Food Network released a statement earlier this week saying that they did not condone Paula Deen’s actions and were closely monitoring the situation.

The Food Network said: “Food Network does not tolerate any form of discrimination and is a strong proponent of diversity and inclusion. We will continue to monitor the situation.”

Here’s a clip from the Daily Show talking about the Paula Deen scandal.

    Talk about making a big deal out of nothing. Too bad there is nothing else in this world to be concerned about. Get over it already.

    You've posted 3 different posts on your wall and every single one you've commented that you wish they'd stop making a big deal out of it… and that there are other things to be concerned about, so why not post the things you're so concerned about instead of posting stuff you say you don't care about? Talk about hypocritical.
