Paula Deen Out at Food Network

Postby GLX » Fri Jun 21, 2013 5:24 pm

Friday has been quite the busy day for Paula Deen ... and not in a good way. First, she was a no-show for her "Today" show appearance, then she made an attempt at an apology for her past racist comments (and more) by posting a video to YouTube. As media outlets began picking up the video, in which she begged forgiveness from everyone from her children to her fans, it was suddenly taken down. But within an hour or so, a new apology video went up. And just as it did, other news broke: The Food Network is firing her.
All of the hubub stems from the recent release of her deposition statements for a discrimination lawsuit made by a former employee. In the deposition, Deen admits to having used the N-word, tolerating racist jokes, and mulling over a wedding in which all of the waiters would be black and dressed as slaves.
In her latest apology video, the 66-year-old sits in an office looking into the camera, and kicking things off with her signature "Hello, y'all." Interestingly, she starts off with an apology about skipping her "Today" appearance.
"I was invited this morning to speak with Matt Lauer about a subject that has been very hurtful for a lot of people and Matt, I have to say I have been physically not able to this morning. The pain has been tremendous that I have caused to myself and to others. So I'm taking this opportunity, now that I have pulled myself together and am able to speak, to offer an apology to those that I have hurt," she says in the 2-minute clip. "I want people to understand that my family and I are not the kind of people that the press is wanting to say we are. The color of your skin, your religion, your sexual preference does not matter, but it’s what's in the heart … and my family and I try to live by that."
Deen continues her apology, ending with "I hope that you forgive me because this comes from the deepest part of my heart…."
Of course, the apology comes too late to salvage her own cooking show. "Food Network will not renew Paula Deen's contract when it expires at the end of this month," it said in a statement. Deen has been with the network for more than a decade.

Meanwhile, beating women, rape, torturing animals, and other violent behavior is forgiven and careers go on.

Honkey Bitch has been terminated with prejudice for her past. What a cracker red neck.. should be jailed.
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

When I used to watch Food Network, she and Rachel Ray were my favorite ones to watch. Then Ray got big and annoying. Now, there's no one left for me to watch.

See I really don't understand this shit. It was in the past. Hell I know I said the n word before, does that make me a racist. No cause I said it when I was younger and dumber. And I really didn't know the meaning of the word until later one. Hell used to play a game called N knocking. To this day still don't know why it was called that.

Plus she was under oath. She told the truth, she should be praised for not lying.

Unless I'm missing something, and she is secretly running a N word cooking ring.

Jailed?!?

Did I miss something?

I thought she just laughed at/made racist comments and jokes. Bad, sure, but arrestable?

The slur is pretty bad, but there's also the whole thing where she wanted to do the Civil War-era wedding party complete with slave help. So that's a thing too.

:lol:

I was being sarcastic. I think it's idiotic that she's been fired and persecuted for having used a word that Keb probably drops at least several times a day. Others even more. She appears, on the surface of this story, to just be another crass moron.

There's no excuse for using the n word as a celebrity. I appreciate some good racial humor, but you gotta know you can't both have a show on the food network AND drop the n word. It's one or the other.

It is depressing the way people have been trying to minimize and excuse her behavior.

Not really though. Hibbert had to apologize publicly for what he said during the NBA Playoffs on the air and Yunel Escobar got chased out of Toronto for having Spanish homophobic slurs on his eye blacks.

Kerry Rhodes though... :smt011
