Celeb chef Paula Deen's racist deposition has been revealed after she made the shocking statements on May 17, and while the butter-loving TV personality has been in hot water in the past for her lack of concern for healthy diet, that controversy is certain to be eclipsed by the content of her remarks.
Several sources are reporting upon Paula Deen's racist deposition, in which she not only makes a damning admission about her acceptable vernacular, but also waxes lyrical about a slave-catered fantasy party that truly crosses the line from "OMG" to "WTF" territory.
Paula Deen's racist musings come from an earlier lawsuit, in which the chef and Southern belle was accused of emotionally distressing former employee Lisa Jackson and her brother Bubba Hiers.
Jackson and Hiers claimed Deen had used the n-word, but it appears that the cooking personality is not that bothered by such an allegation.
When asked in the deposition about whether she'd said the word, Deen answered: "yes, of course," before detailing instances in which she'd used it.
But it's no big deal to tell racist jokes, Deen adds, testifying:
"It's just what they are — they're jokes... most jokes are about Jewish people, rednecks, black folks... I can't determine what offends another person."
Paula Deen's racist admissions don't stop there. She talks a bit about being inspired by an all black staff and muses:
"I mean, it was really impressive. That restaurant represented a certain era in America... after the Civil War, during the Civil War, before the Civil War... It was not only black men, it was black women... I would say they were slaves."
The National Enquirer, the mag that broke the story, spoke with an "insider" who says the testimony is shocking -- but what's really a surprise is that it's mild compared to day to day life:
"While Paula and Bubba did make some pretty damaging confessions in their depositions, what they admitted to only scratches the surface of what actually goes on in their daily lives."
Further details of Paula Deen's racist deposition will be published in the mag.
