Daily Talker: Do You Believe Paula Deen When She Says She’s Not Racist?
Former Food Network host Paula Deen is in full damage control mode. She’s admitted in the past to using the “N word” but told NBC’s Today Show she is not a racist. Former employees, who filed racial discrimination suits against Deen, claim she has used the slur. Those allegations cost Deen millions of dollars in lost endorsement deals.
Deen told The Today Show people are telling “lies” about her, but tearfully told the TV viewers “If you’ve never committed a sin, please pick up that rock and hit me as hard as you can.”
Do you believe her? Do you think she should have been fired from her jobs and lost endorsement deals? Was that a sincere apology?
