THIS IS NOT THE WAY TO CELEBRATE JUNETEENTH: Paula Deen ADMITS To USING "N" Word, Accused Of Making BLACK Workers Use SEPARATE Entrances & Restrooms

America's butter-loving southern queen Paula Deen (shown above with Amar'e Stoudemire) is embroiled in a little bit of controversy over her use of the "N"  word.  Get the deets on some of the off-color behavior that Chef Paula and her sons are accused of behind the scenes inside...

 

Charges of racism are being flung at Southern-chef Paula Deen after The National Enquirer published passages from a video of a deposition where Paula admitted to using the N-word and making racist and anti-Semitic jokes.

According to the Huffington Post, the deposition was held on May 17 as part of a court case brought forth by former Paula Deen Enterprises employee Lisa Jackson against Deen and her brother, Earl “Bubba” Hiers. In the suit, Lisa claimed there were several instances of sexual and racial workplace discrimination.

In one particularly salacious story from the deposition, Lisa was asked to plan a wedding for Paula's son Bubba.  Lisa claims Paula said she wanted to do a slave-style wedding.  No, really....she did.  Paula's words:

"I want a true Southern -plantation style wedding.  Well what I would really like is a bunch of little niggers 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?"

The deposition goes on to claim that Black workers at "Uncle Bubba's Restaurant" were required to use the BACK entrance to pick up their checks, and were all required to use the same bathroom at the BACK of the restaurant (while white employees could use the customer's restrooms).  Also, Blacks employees who worked in the back of the restaurant were not allow to go to the front of the restaurant.  

Elsewhere in the deposition, Lisa goes on the quote Bubba saying things like, "I wish I could put all those niggers (in the kitchen) on a boat back to Africa)."  And, he allegedly said, "They should send President Obama to the oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico so he could nigger-rig it."

When asked by lawyers about Lisa's claims, here are direct passages from the interview.

On using the N-word:

Lawyer: Have you ever used the N-word yourself?
Deen: Yes, of course.
Lawyer: Okay. In what context?
Deen: Well, it was probably when a black man burst into the bank that I was working at and put a gun to my head.

Lawyer: Okay. And what did you say?
Deen: Well, I don't remember, but the gun was dancing all around my temple ... I didn't -- I didn't feel real favorable towards him.

Lawyer: Okay. Well, did you use the N-word to him as he pointed a gun in your head at your face?
Deen: Absolutely not.

Lawyer: Well, then, when did you use it?
Deen: Probably in telling my husband.


And on her brother's behavior:

Lawyer: Are you aware of Mr. Hiers admitting that he engaged in racially and sexually inappropriate behavior in the workplace?
...

Deen: I guess

Lawyer: Okay. Well, have you done anything about what you heard him admit to doing?
Deen: My brother and I have had conversations. My brother is not a bad person. Do humans behave inappropriately? At times, yes. I don't know one person that has not. My brother is a good man. Have we told jokes? Have we said things that we should not have said, that -- yes, we all have. We all have done that, every one of us.

 

For her part, Paula Deen's lawyer defended her in a carfefully worded statement that did not deny what was revealed in the deposition.

"Contrary to media reports, Ms. Deen does not condone or find the use of racial epithets acceptable. She is looking forward to her day in court."

Sometimes we wish we didn't know the things we know about celebs.  Especially idiotic statements like this.  And no, we're not giving her points for being "truthful."  She and her brothers seem to "miss" the days of the ole South.  And we're going to have to MISS her mac & cheese recipes that were damn good. Too bad so sad....

Listen, I been knew about

Listen, I been knew about Paula deen and her companys tactics for many years now. Thats why i never watched her show. Paula deen owns, or used to own, the Smithfield Pork enterprise in north carolina. Google it. Its basically the biggest pork, deli meats, etc, company in the US. There was a big scandal around this company calling black folk niggers, and treating them terribly, whipping them, firing them for no reason, etc etc. and it wasnt just rascism and mistreatment of blacks. hispanics too. anyway, im sure it can be found online. It went away quietly from the news (of course, ahem). Another reason why i dont buy smithfield anything, not that i eat pork, but its other products they sell as well. I mean i had to basically pry the remote from my black girlfriends hands when she watched and frequently cooked, Paula deens diabetes ridden recipes. I told her about the smithfield thing in the news and she still watched smh. Maybe this will be enough for her and other black folk to stop watching her show and buying her products?? I mean SOME black folk can really be ignorant and stuck in the slave mentality. I mean this IS an old white woman, from savannah GEORGIA, with deep southern roots. HELLO! We should already know she is a rascist. I did! Her damn mama/daddy was probably slave owners! Her accent alone screams rascist, lol. One TV special, they showed paula deen's home, she still lives on her family's heirloom plantation!! And to add the icing on the cake (no pun intended) she has black people as the hired help!! Smh

Ok seriously, why is anyone surprised? This is the type of shit that pisses me off with black people. Did you guys really think white people did not call us this word when we call each other this name right in front of them??? Jayz and Kanye did a whole song allowing whites to use this word? But I tell you this much, if a white person ever gets bold enough to call me this word to my face, Their going to be getting buried a week later.

Not shocked nor surprised, just disappointed. After all, she's an old ass honkie, of course she says nigger day in and day out. Why are these idiots just now coming forward? Surely she didn't just start this. That's a problem I have with southern blacks, they've always been too passive and afraid. Paula and her inbred brothers ass should've been kicked long ago. What kind of person allows this kind of disrespect from an employer? Inferior attitudes. I am glad though that they decided to sue this fat bitch.

It's no shock to me she's and older white women from the south. I would call bs if she stated she never used the "n" word. What are you going to do, what is in the dark will come to light, now making your employees use separate entrance is stupid and the employees if true could have sued her for discrimination so I doubt that is true. All I can say is I never supported this women show or her cooking unless I wanted to die of a heart attack I mean seriously who needs that much darn butter! *Drops Mic*

I never supported her either

I never supported her either with all that "southern crap". She never saw my money and at this point she is definitely saying fuck it and let the chips fall where they may because she has already made a decent penny along with her brother and the rest of her racist redneck family. Honestly though I don't support blacks that I feel are hypocritical too. Take Kanye and his white loving self but make songs about demoralizing white women. WTH??? Wasn't his mother a professor? Does he not know how incredibly hypocritical he looks? There is no difference between people like him and The hillbilly Deens.
