  • SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Celebrity cook Paula Deen says she has used racial slurs in the past but insists she and her brother, who are accused of racial and sexual discrimination in a lawsuit by a former manager of their restaurant, don’t tolerate hateful behavior.

    In a court deposition filed Monday in federal court, an attorney for former restaurant manager Lisa Jackson presses the 66-year-old Deen about her racial views and those of her brother, Bubba Hiers. Deen is asked if she’s ever used “the N-word.” She responds: “Yes, of course.”

    Deen says she likely used the slur in the 1980s after a black man held her at gunpoint at the Georgia bank where she worked.

    Deen insists she and her brother object to slurs being used in “any cruel or mean behavior.”

    1. I’m glad they fired her. They need to fire the son too. They shouldn’t make another dime off us ” niggers” And I hope you rot in hell. Oops I’m sure there will be some of them ” niggers ” there too and I bet they won’t be serving anything……… Except a can of whoop ass.

      • I just can’t figure out how you stop tolerating poor behavior, when you obviously can’t determine your own poor behavior! It would seem difficult to curtail harassment of any kind when you yourself are part of said harassment!

    2. This is old news….Paula Deen is a known racist. Oprah actually put her on the map by gving her publicity on her show.

    3. Why would you only mention the racial slurs? She also said she wanted to have black men serve her at an event, as though they were slaves!!! Black American Web, please bring all of the information!!

    4. You see how they lie because when that sorry first came out she said no, but when you get caught the first thing that come out your mouth I’m not racist I just use it because I was rob by a Black Man. Yeah right we are wrong by white people everyday in our walk of life do we go around call them cracker, white trash, pink face pig, no because when we have problems with that person it don’t matter what color we addresse them. Watch what you say you never know who is around and watching or listening.

    5. The fact that she felt comfortable saying “Yes, of course” when she was asked if she ever used the N word! The of course makes it seem like she thinks its okay and ordinary to use this term!!!! I think it all goes with the fact that there are some black people call each other the N word freely all the time. To me, this makes people of other races become too comfortable with saying it. We have to stop it within our race first!!! Self-respect is the beginning.

    6. NAZI & RACE HATER: As a Jew can detect a Nazi without the Nazi uniform, I can EASILY detect Paula Deen is a HATER of BLACK PEOPLE without her wearing the hood.

    7. I guess she feels she can call you a n*gger as a term of endearment and as long as the person saying it, is not being mean or cruel.

    8. Yes she is still using it, IT just amaze’s me, that they are the ones’ who Created it,,

      Racial Slurs are just part of everyone’s day,, they really don’t understand what effect it will have on our children. the Next Generation.

      I do not watch her show anyway!
