1:00 PM PT -- FYI, Paula just yanked the video apology from her YouTube channel.
Paula Deen continues to step in it, and we know part of the problem is that her team doesn't have a clue.
She just issued a weird, video apology with an edit after almost every sentence. It's as if some publicist is feeding her lines that she has trouble delivering.
Rather than explaining why she used the N-word in the past -- something she might have been able to explain given her background -- she's just begging for forgiveness. It feels like it's coming from a bunch of suits, and not from her heart. Huge miss.
Sources connected with Deen tell TMZ ... this was an apology produced by committee -- a committee of lawyers, publicists and other managers who don't understand the meaning of the word "apology." They've strung a bunch of words together that make Deen look pathetic ... throwing herself at the mercy of the court of public opinion.
