National Enquirer (July 8, 2013)—and before you say it, John Edwards!—has a lengthy take-down of Paula Deen, pointing out that her sins were not confined to maybe once saying the N-word after being robbed, but instead included using it so often one employee called her "her favorite word," blatantly discriminating against her black employees, hiding money in her restaurant so she could sit back and laugh while her poorly-paid black employees frantically searched for it like an Easter-egg hunt and used gay slurs readily:
"Mincey McDonald [former employee] recently spoke with The Enquirer again, and she confirmed that Paula DID use the N-word as recently as 10 years ago, and would also 'refer to homosexuals as f*******.' 'N***** was Paula'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.' Mincey McDonald recalled. 'She only wanted them working in the back of the restaurant where the patrons couldn't see them."
But go ahead and say it's all just silly nonsense and who HASN'T done all of that?
