Paula Deen's Brother

BUSINESS IS BOOMING!!!

6/25/2013 3:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Racial scandals aren't always bad for business ... just ask Paula Deen's brother who says the embattled chef's restaurants have been "slammed" with customers in the wake of the N-word drama.

Bubba Hiers -- who is also named as a defendant in the sexual and racial harassment lawsuit against Paula -- was walking around Savannah today when he was asked how the family was coping.

"We're doing fine," Bubba said ... and when asked if Deen's businesses were continuing to thrive despite all of the bad media, he insisted the companies were "slammed" ... and he meant it in a good way.

FYI -- Lisa Jackson, the woman suing Paula and Bubba, worked as the G.M. for Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House in Savannah, Georgia from 2005 - 2010.  Bubba is part owner along with Paula.

Jackson claims Bubba is a racist who dropped the N-word in the workplace and also viewed porn on the kitchen computer.

Paula has previously claimed Jackson is a liar who is just trying to extort the family.

I'm sure the diners all wore their nicest and brightest white sheets, too. And wouldn't you know it, those without hoods were all bald and had a little Greek symbol tattooed on their necks.

Does Paula know that filing a Lawsuit is not Extortion?

So far Paula has already admitted to using Racial Slurs, so Lisa is not exactly Lying, Next you never know how many employees are going to come out in court and talk about Bubba Racial Harassment and Paula, Who knows what will come out about the allegation about Bubba and his Racial Harassment and Sexual Harassment. Paula should stop this and give Lisa her Million and have this Lawsuit over, because this is going to get a lot worse than it gets better.

BUBBA said it to. The whole family was taught the n word and it continue to be used in their everyday life. They remind me of the restaurant in the movie "Life" with Eddie murphy and martin Lawrence.
Billy and his gun-toeing mama with the shortgun. lol

Im not mad at her using the n word but the other stuff is what made me look at her differently. Sucks she lost her show and endorsements but you have to watch what you say when you're 'famous'. Honestly, I can't believe ppl still think and speak that way smh
