Food Network Dumps Deen after racial slurs come to light

Deen begs forgiveness

The Food Network has terminated ties with Paula Deen after her admission in a deposition last month that she has used ‘the N-word’ in the past, and that she wanted to plan a “plantation style wedding for her brother.”
“I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong that I’ve done. I want to learn and grow from this. Inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable,” Deen said in the video. “I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way, but I beg you, my children, my team, my fans, my partners — I beg for your forgiveness. Please forgive me for the mistakes that I made.”
Deen, 66, and her brother are being sued by a former employee at their Savannah, Ga., restaurant who claims Deen’s brother subjected her to sexist, racist and violent behavior. She accused Deen of using ‘the N word’ as recently as in 2007. Deen initially denied using the word then, but has conceded the truth.
