ALL FRIED UP: Paula Deen FIRED From The FOOD Network, OFFERS Half-BAKED Apology For USING "N" Word

Hey Ya'll! Paula Deen tried to butter her biscuits with a half-assed apology earlier today, but it wasn't enough to save her gig at the FOOD Network! Get the deets on her firing and watch the apology videos inside...

“I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong that I’ve done. I want to learn and grow from this. Inappropriate and hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable.”

Earlier today, Paula Deen offered a very-forced apology for her reported use of the "N" word and other racial slurs that surfaced this week. 

Unfortunately for Paula, the video was not well-received and many criticized it for being scripted, awkward and unauthentic. So after the cold reception, the video was replaced with another attempt.

 
This time, Paula seem more relaxed and offered a more "detailed" apology.

"Your color of your skin, your religion, your sexual preference does not matter...I was wrong, yes, I’ve worked hard, and I have made mistakes, but that is no excuse and I offer my sincere apology to those that I have hurt, and I hope that you forgive me because this comes from the deepest part of my heart.”

 
Unfortunately for Paula, the two attempts were not enough to save her gig at the FOOD Network.  A spokeswoman for the network told TMZ that Paula Deen’s contract would not be renewed when it expired at the end of June.
 
Although the FOOD Network didn't offer any specifics about the non-renewal, it looks like they couldn't stand the heat...and put Paula out of the kitchen.

It's not ONLY about the "n"

It's not ONLY about the "n" word. That's not even all that important in this day and age. It was her deep held belief system that she REALLY should have apologized for. She saw nothing wrong with wanting to have a group of black *middle aged* men SPECIFICALLY (not any other race, mind you) serve as waiters at a Deep Shouth-themed wedding. Think about that. What does that say about her mind set? This is the real story, not the "n" word. She has a deep abiding belief that Black people belong in a certain place. We are getting sidetracked by the "n" word...which just touched the tip of the iceberg with this woman.

Its funny how 'every once in

Its funny how 'every once in a comment' you will always hear somebody reference the point of black people using the word. So DAMN what!!! What does that have to do with anything? Me using the word is not the same as a white person speaking about a person of color with hate in their hearts...Let's just be real! It also does not give and/or excuse Paula and others like her because their intent behind using the word can never in a million years equal to a person of color saying it to each other...EVER!!!

Paula Deen has her issues,

Paula Deen has her issues, but she was most likely fired because poor ratings. I can't see a network will abruptly cancel programming based on this issue. The network wanted to get rid of Deen and this was their way to end her contract. As a black woman, I'm not upset with Paula Deen statements, but I am concerned with the same network that fired Deen, record of hiring black people, behind and in front of the camera. We can't excuse Deen's words but look at the bigger picture.

I agree, we should stop using

I agree, we should stop using the N word because of its true origin and meaning. It is not a term of endearment. White people love the fact that we call ourselves niggers. It is a indirect form of brainwashing. Its sad that because our people still use it, others think they can get a pass by saying it too. I'm glad the real Paula has been exposed, and for others who are reading, STOP watching her shows, buying the cookbooks, and eating at her restaurants. It just gives these devils life!

Mrs. Paula, where do i start..... I appreciate your 1/2 ass apology. It just feels to me that this was the first time you had to apolilies not apoligize for your actions. Can you say contrieved or conjured, that is what it feels like to me. My girlfriend absolutely adored you, she had me watching your cooking shows and it was very entertaining. Its a slap in the face really because most of those recipes were given to you by the same people inwhich you and your son bubba ridiculed. Go stick your head in the sand, stick a thumb up your a*s, or whatever the f--k you got to do to make yourself feel better and go and make me some grits. Plenty of butter please!!!!!!

Oh lord I'm agreeing with

Oh lord I'm agreeing with you. I don't know why people gloss over that shit. She's an equal opportunity racist/hater. She talked shit about the jews (who own damn near everything in the entertainment industry) and the gays (fighting for equal everything right now), but somehow it's the N-word (we always good for a scapegoat) gets her fired?!?!? Get the FOH with that bullshit. No jews was going to have her on their network talking shit about them. point. blank. period. And that's why her fat ass got axed.

I know ppl are not going to

I know ppl are not going to agree with what I'm about to say but, I'm going to say it anyway. If we want other races to not use the N-word, then we should stop using it. We use it in our music, in our greetings, when someone dies, in public, and social media. So, why do you all expect other ppl to not use the word? We make it acceptable to use , so why not them? We're always complaining how others exploit black ppl but, we exploit ourselves. We as a whole need to make changes within our on race before we can hold others responsible for their actions.

Wrong. Black people as a

Wrong. Black people as a whole do not need to make changes within our race regarding the N word because not all black people use this word. Don't put us under one umbrella. Just because we are the same ethnicity and sometimes the same complexion, doesn't mean we all look or act alike. K?
brownlace's picture

You're right. I don't agree

You're right. I don't agree with what you are saying. Your argument is flawed because you are blaming black people for other's using the N word. Just because I use it, if you think it's wrong, doesn't mean you should use it. BTW, no one is telling them they CAN'T us it, but there are consequences to what one does. If you yell "fire" in a crowded theater, your ass is in trouble. When I hear people use that excuse for them using the word, I think they/you forgets who created the word and used it against us in the first place. Remember, not all black people use the N word, thus making your argument more wrong. I don't know if you are black or not, but I hear white people or black's who parrot whites use that excuse and it doesn't hold water. Sorry.

It How a person use the word

It How a person use the word & there true feelings how they expresss the word. She hired black people to work in her brother resturant to use the back entrance & use a different restroom so her saying the word came from a different place. Paula Dean was raised in slavery days so she she knew better. First, to erase the word is erasing history.

WOOOOOOOO!! "...When someone
