Paula Deen

Racial/Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Dismissed

breaking news

Paula Deen
has SETTLED the lawsuit that sent her empire crashing to the ground.

Lisa Jackson -- who worked as General Manager at Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House -- filed the suit, claiming racial and sexual harassment.  The racial claim was dismissed recently because Lisa didn't have a dog in the fight -- because she's white.

Now Jackson's lawsuit has been dismissed, and all signs point to a settlement.  The terms appear to be confidential.

When you settle it sets the stage for another lawsuit. People will see shes willing to pay out and sue her now. She was already dragged through the dirt she should have fought it.
but ya she should have settled BEFORE it blew up

I'm so glad, this was a witch hunt from the start. The only thing Paula did wrong was tell the truth and they crucified her for it. Shame, shame. Congrats Paula, I hope you'll be able to get your life back someday.

It's too late, her career is over! That's the problem with scapegoating!

If she has just admitted it and apologized like Dog the bounty hunter she would have had an easier time.

All this girl wanted was money. She was not harassed, she worked for them for 5 yrs ( live in Savannah and there are plenty of restaurant jobs). She could have quit at any time. The media that bashed Paula now owes her an apology.

Paula Deens mouth gets her in trouble for sure, but this whole mess got blown way out of proportion. All the companies that dropped her will wish they hadn't. That's the problem with reacting before all the facts are known.

Sorry to hear that. She should have fought it. It is very clear this woman would say anything to get money she doesn't deserve. The racial case proves it. The new American dream sue somebody and live happily ever after.

The Truth    

Question: Why is it Pauly Dean used the “N” word 20 years ago and everyone to include Oprah went crazy and destroyed her career. Oprah said she will never let anyone use the “N” word and they should lose the career’s.

So why is it that Chris Brown can go off today and use the “N” word multiple times and scream racism but Oprah says today that it is ok.

I want to hear a real discussion as to why Using the “N” is ok for some but not for others when it is vile word to begin with.

Isn’t this a double standard.

Oprah I’d like you to start the decision since you are the flag bearer of the cause.

I truly want a real discussion without the hate and the black and white comments.

The Truth Hurts

*I am not for or against anyone I only want a real discussion and not grandstanding, for political or public gain.

Now turn the table Paula. Return the favor.

Question - How come we haven't seen the 'plaintiff's' face plastered all over the place?

Why is it that white people are anxious to use this word ? This is what's called white privilege. I guess white people are saying we invented this word for you so why can't we use it. You realize this is crazy right?
