Here is the claim, ” The Caucasian former employee also alleges that Deen used awful racial slurs for black employees. She also allegedly told Jackson that she wanted a “true southern plantation-style wedding” with black attendees required to “wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around… Now that would be a true southern wedding, wouldn’t it? But we can’t do that because the media would be on me about that.”
Ok it bares noting, I think what you say in your own home is private and what you say in public is public. That said fame is a double edged sword, secrets become few and far between.
Now if you came to this post for a news article you came to the wrong place, what you are going to get is my opinion!
Are you people CRAZY??????????
Hey I have spent a lot of time enjoying her as well, her recipes are top shelf!, But what in the heck are you doing? Especially you FaceBook people, 200K fans defending her???? She wants to dress black employees up like Uncle Tom Characters and thinks that’s entertaining? I am offended, and you do not get whiter than me! If you want to read the transcripts for yourself here is the link to them yes all 149 pages of them. Deen Deposition Transcripts
I do not care how great her cooking is or how sweet her southern drawl, it is embarrassing. But what is more embarrassing is that we are making this soooo much bigger by rallying being her and creating all these FB pages and News stories of poor pitiful Paula Deen. There is nothing Poor about her! Whether she is on the food network or not she will still be around and continue to make money.
My 2 cents is Thank You Food Network for taking a stand again Racism in America. I applaud and appreciate your stand. You now are charged with being this strong on all issues of Racism and discrimination, use your charge wisely. Those of you who are liking and sharing these pages do you know what message you are sending? (Please insert your best Southern Drawl here, “Hey Everyone, I Like Paula Deen, she can throw racial slurs my way any time she wants as long as it comes with a Key Lime Pie”
If this act was simply a Hate on for Paula Deen, you have MUCH bigger problems ahead!
Paula as for you I say if you said it own up to it, if this is how you feel we live in a country of Free speech, then claim it and be done with it. If you did not say this than fight it, but do not be a hypocrite and say you are sorry if you truly feel this way. There are people on both sides of this who feel both ways about this. Trust me you will still make money, just take responsibility for what you said and did and move on! I assure you the Racists of the World would be happy to publish a cook book or TV show featuring you and your brother.
That’s My 2 Cents, have an opinion you would like to share? Do it here!
If you support the Food Network in this decision here is one Facebook Page where you can show your support

Paula Deen Dropped by Home Depot, Walmat and Caesars Entertainment after he attempt to do damage control on the Today show. Watch the news story here.
Paula NEVER took responsibility for what she said and or did and instead during the interview said, “I is who I is”! How about it didn’t occur to me my words were hurtful to so many I apologize and would like to do this (Insert charitable act here) to benefit others to in some way show my remorse. THAT might have been a MUCH better approach.
How about instead of you saying teary eyed, “So many hateful things have been said about me”, what if you addressed the hateful things YOU have said. Really? This is your apology?
PEOPLE TAKE YOUR BLINDERS OFF FOR PETES SAKE!!!!!!
