Paula Deen used the F-word to slur homosexuals

Fresh allegations have emerged that Paula Deen used derogatory language when speaking not only about black people but also gay people

The celebrity chef openly wept on Wednesday's Today show in a bid to save her career

Family are reportedly concerned that Dean, who has Type 2 diabetes, is comfort eating fatty foods as a result of the crisis

Following her Today appearance, the chef lost another two endorsement deals, with Walmart and Caesars, to add to the two she has already lost

Now another former employee, Renee Mincey McDonald, has come forward and claimed to the National Enquirer that she regularly heard Deen use the N-word during the years 1998-2003 when she worked as a waitress at Deen’s ‘Lady & Sons’ restaurant in Savannah, Ga.

According to the magazine's report, McDonald said black staff members were ‘treated like animals,’ while Deen would also ‘refer to homosexuals as f******.’

N***** was Paul’s favorite word – she used it all the time! I’ve heard Paula specifically say she "did not want any n***** working in front of the house as hostesses, waiters or bussers,”’ McDonald told the National Enquirer.

‘She only wanted them working in the back of the restaurant where the patrons couldn’t see them.

A representative for Deen told the Enquirer that she denied using the derogatory terms to refer to black and homosexual employees and denied the claim that she did not want black employees in the front of her restaurant.

Deen famously lost 40 pounds after being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes but a source close to her family told the Enquirer that she has been binge eating on high fat comfort foods in the wake of the scandal and they are concerned for her health.

The chef has already gained some of the weight she lost and there are worries that the stress of handling scandal may trigger her to gain all the weight she has lost and maybe even more. 'Paula is an emotional eater with little self-control when it comes to drowning her sorrows with fattening comfort foods - and having her racist remarks laid bare has triggered a round of unparalleled eating binges,' the source told the Enquirer.

I was wondering why in her "apology" video last week and also in her Today interview she made sure to say that she doesn't care who you go to bed with and doesn't care what your religion is, even though the focus was about the N-word. Now it all makes sense - she must have known it was going to eventually come out that she's said anti-gay things too.

R14 I wouldn't be surprised if that's next.

Haven't you ever heard "strength in numbers"? A lot of people don't have the guts to say anything until after the first person speaks up. And since this particular woman coming forward isn't part of the suit (I don't see anything saying that she is), she would have no reason to lie since she has nothing to gain from it.

But if you want to keep making excuses for this piece of trash, go right on ahead.

Why do straight people always think gay men like Paula Dean? I never liked her show, she cooks crap food to begin with then covers it up with fat and butter.

If we want camp value, Sandra Lee and her cocktails. If we want to see handsome older gay neighbors pop buy we watch the Barefoot Contessa. If we want to see semi-butch kitchen chef give us secrets of a restaurant chef, we check out Anne Burrell.

But Paula Dean, give me a break. The only thing good she ever made was Bobby Dean.

R22, have you read the other threads about this? I don't think it's so much that some gay men are "fans," it's that they're defending her.

Apparently she has hatred towards Muslims too. Though, this cannot be judged as racist since most Americans have hatred towards Muslims anyway.

R23, I guess I equated that support with fandom. Are you sure her defenders here aren't the straight females taking a break from their scrap booking?

by Anonymousreply 2506/27/2013

As a non fan, I will play devils advocate and say that working in restaurants is like working in a locker room. What goes on in the dining room is like a show, what goes on in the kitchen is gutter talk and back slapping, joking around and throwing insults as entertainment. Sort of like a comedy roast.

So it would not surprise me if a restaurant in the south is using the N word frequently and she just assumed it was OK for her to play..

by Anonymousreply 2606/27/2013

I have no idea who watches her. All I know is I have been to several parties with mixed group of people and when the Food Network comes up, first thing I hear is "I bet you like Paula Dean"

Is it just me, or does all this negative publicity only exist to distract us from the disturbing fact that she uses donuts and sticks of butter in her recipes?

by Anonymousreply 3006/27/2013

It is rare for a heterosexual to NOT use derogatory language about gay people. There is a pervasive anti-gay animus among heterosexuals. Gay people have not been able to be on a level-playing field with heterosexuals for thousands of years across the globe. So it is not surprising Paula Deen would say stuff like this. Gay people need to push back against this stuff, we are not going to be shit on any more.

by Anonymousreply 3206/27/2013

she already said that the jokes she's told are about blacks, jews, homosexuals and rednecks. is it any wonder her show got chopped?

R33, neither of Paula's sons have ever come out as gay.

[quote] Paula has African American friends as well

Rick Santorum 'has gay friends' as well.

[quote] I think accusing people of being racists so casually and swiftly allows real racists to be ignored and to get away with true evil. We don't want to repeat history when African American's had no Civil Rights. Also, we don't want the Salem witch trials and the Red Scare to be repeated either ,which this is very reminiscent. As a result, many innocent people wind up getting hurt and destroyed.

Sorry, but no. You don't prioritize like that. The only thing missing from your tirade is bitching about 'the PC brigade' or people being intolerant of intolerance.

[quote] It's ironic because many people on here are spewing deep hate.

Why? Because gay people have been victimized for centuries they are suddenly expected to not 'victimize' other people? Are gay people meant to be 'better than' this?

You're a frau and a homophobe. Kindly fuck off.

Paula & Bubba give poor white trash a bad name.

by Anonymousreply 3906/27/2013

I don't think all of this outrage, at least on DL, isn't because she said the N word, but because DL doesn't like or respect her cooking. She makes southern comfort food. Good southern comfort food is not healthy and has a lot of butter and sugar, etc. I've never had her cooking, so I don't know if it's good or not, but I do know that southern comfort food and healthy eating choices typically don't go hand in hand.

I'm not a frau or defending Paula, I'm just suggesting that all of this DL outrage stems from a place of "she's trash and cooks horribly and she makes frau food and she's not upscale" and not necessarily what she's said or done or thinks.

by Anonymousreply 4006/27/2013

The mainstream media knows that most morons don't read and only pay attention to headlines and commentators opinions. They purposely left out the most damaging parts of the deposition because they knew how these type of incidents turn into outrage and anger by just the mere mention of the n word. The media never passes up an opportunity to race bait and keep the public divided.

All of these talking heads who spoke on this incident , did not even mention the deplorable racism and sexism these employees suffered in recent years. They have harped on the "20 year" n word comment and so many idiots jumped on it and ran with it. The media knows how dumb most of are and they will always take advantage of it. At this point, I don't even think the deposition matters. Too much anger has festered and people are stuck in their ways regardless of facts.

by Anonymousreply 4106/27/2013

R40, you are correct about the food, but other "chefs" on the Food Network cook even worse stuff. Sandra Lee - Almost Home Made just assembles things from boxes and cans like cool whip.

I would say, her food is a product of her environment, but so is she. I actually find it odd that the Food Network would hire an old southern lady and expect her to be totally different from the environment she came from.

The executives at the Food Networks have pretty bad judgement to begin with. They always pic the "next food network start" that nobody wants to watch. The losers are the ones that eventually get their own shows.

Paula Dean has never been gay friendly from the few times I have ever watched her show, we just dont exisit.

Compare that with The Barefoot Contessa who has gay friend after gay friend helping out. It's not just a stick either, they are really her friends and people she has known for years.

Both big ladies, both on the Food Network. Although I will admit, Barefoot Contessa is a really good cook, probably the best on that channel. Even so, her stuff is not over the top fancy, its fresh, simple to do and very tasty.

I find it disturbing that blacks are the ones being blamed for Paula's desmise and are being vilified for being too sensitive for her use of the N word. Paula brought this upon herself and is solely respnosible for her own downfall. Paula was not fired from the Food Network for using a racial slur, she was fired because Food Network wants to protect their own asses. Food Network could care less about the feelings of black folks. If they did, she would have been fired last year when the allegations first came out. Blacks are always the scapegoats.

by Anonymousreply 4306/27/2013

Blacks are getting blamed because no one has done their homework and no one has read the complaint or researched the person who brought the complaint.

If you want to know the true problem... too many people think that the N word is the be all end all of racism. So the media focuses on that. Meanwhile there are millions of racists in the world who have never once uttered the n word.

by Anonymousreply 4506/27/2013

R45, they don't want to read the actual complaint. All they see is the N-word and thats it.They don't want the facts.Most of these angry right wingers just want to point fingers and use blacks as scapegoats anyway. Notice some are treating Paula like she is the victim? The race baiting media is also to blame for this because they don't want to talk about the lawsuit. Why is the sexual harassment hardly brought up?

Her unabashed, good ol' southern "comfort" food led to diabetes which she hid until she found a way to profit off of it. So instead of improving her cuisine, she teamed up with Big Pharma.

I found her to be a disgusting, greedy and unethical person long before this recent collapse.

Oh, but at least her dumbass son wore Hank Aaron pjs, so clearly not racist. Fucking idiot.

by Anonymousreply 5406/27/2013

More and more people are reading the complaint and seeing what it's really about.

Does she really have enough money to survive this? I was watching one of her diabetes scam interviews and they said she made $10 million that year. That doesn't seem like enough of an annual income to support an empire. And does she get all of that money from those endorsement deals upfront?

R14, In my experience, anti-Semites also make slurs against those from all other races, as well as gays, and women. They also hate anyone who is not exactly like them, meaning comes from a different part of the country, or thinks even slightly differently on any subject. I used to think it was just due to ignorance. Now I realize that they are very angry individuals, and usually mentally disturbed.

That is why I defend anyone on DL who is being insulted, to the best of my ability. Those of us who have experienced prejudice in the past should now stand together united, and not let those that hate tear us apart for any reason.

The crappy recipes she does present seemed to be her versions of good ole Southern fare. Maybe that appeals to folks in isolate flyover places, I suppose.

Madame Defarge at R74 (Look it up - we know you're perplexed), stop that kind of reactive intolerance. People could defend her out of confusion, misunderstanding, or a more complex view of the issue than you bring. That doesn't make them racists, you asshole.

And for the record, I loathed Deen before and loathe her after. And I'm biracial. And I think that nailing a person to the wall over one use of a word is ridiculous - discretion and situations matters. AND I seriously doubt this is an isolated thing and have assumed all along she is as phony and rough as any hypocritical egotist.

But don't call people racist just because they don't tow your particular and simplistic line. If anything, it is a racist thing for you to do.
