Paula Deen

Video Apology

Take 2

Paula Deen
must have realized how insincere her first video apology was when she posted it several hours ago ... because she's decided to do it again, and this one is much better.

Paula says in the new video she wanted to speak from her heart -- something she clearly didn't do in her first, heavily-edited and publicist-vetted disaster.

This time she speaks in one take, saying she doesn't discriminate against African Americans, Jews or gays.  It's not polished, but it seems way more authentic.

You be the judge.

At least she's apologizing for it. If it were Burt Reynolds he'd be like oh well, quit crying and wax mustache

Don't even bother apologizing Paula. TMZ will not let this rest and will let the people know you said it and did apologize several times not because you are truely sorry, but because it's not scandalous to say sorry. And there are large groups of people of all colors who will never accept your apology. Now get back to the kitchen and make me some waffles.

TIRED OF PC BS    

This lady has NOTHING to apologize about. The "N" word is used constantly in rap songs, movies and in general conversations among people of color. If it's alright for them use this terrible word, then IT'S FREE GAME PEOPLE. Let Paula go back to cooking delicious food and I will continue to eat it! At least she was honest!!

I've had about enough of you TMZ with this Paul Deen story. It's all fun and games TMZ until somebody tries to smear you and your company as being racist.

You know what? Scew em all. The N word doesn;t even mean anything anymore because all the N's of the world use it. They seem to like it. The world is racist! Get over it. Never gonna "truthfully" change. Only changes what people are allowed to say.

Typical Liberal crap TMZ is doing. Smearing her because she said it a few decades back. Political correctness needs to end.
