Paula Deen Apologizes for Being Racist
We knew this was coming.
Paula Deen has issued an apology for using racist language that essentially plays upon stereotypes of white southerners in an effort for us to accept her “my bad.”
Here’s part of the statement, which was issued via TMZ.
“During a deposition where she swore to tell the truth, Ms. Deen recounted having used a racial epithet in the past, speaking largely about a time in American history which was quite different than today…
…[Paula] was born 60 years ago when America’s South had schools that were segregated, different bathrooms, different restaurants and Americans rode in different parts of the bus. This is not today…
…To be clear Ms. Deen does not find acceptable the use of this term under any circumstance by anyone nor condone any form of racism or discrimination. “
Deen has also apparently canceled upcoming appearances.
