TV Host and southern personality, Paula Deen, is under fire for a recent slip of the tongue. Paula is currently being sued for allegedly telling an events manager that she wanted her brothers wedding to feature "A bunch of little [N-words] wearing long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties."  Under oath Paula said "of course" she's used the N-word . . . after a guy robbed a bank she was working at in 1986 and PUT A GUN TO HER HEAD. 

Interestingly Paula's legal team issued this statement earlier today:

"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 her 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. "
