Who Do You Think You Are alum Paula Deen has frequently been accused of holding racist attitudes, but until now, there’s been little proof to back up those claims. But recent evidence from the National Enquirer has the potential to take the controversy to a whole new level.
Is Paula Deen a racist? Critics have been posing that question for several years now. Finally, the naysayers may have sufficient evidence to prove what they’ve been suspecting all along. A recent report from the National Enquirer brings to light new evidence of Paula’s less-than-exemplary behavior. The National Enquirer claims to possess video footage showing Paula admitting to the frequent use of racist and anti-semitic speech. The recording of this supposed legal deposition is also said to include Paula confessing to having displayed interest in dressing black employees like slaves and having them serve at her wedding in this degrading manner.
The only problem with all this is that it’s the National Enquirer. True to form, the tabloid has not released its alleged video, meaning that there’s no way for us to know if this video actually exists. According to one rep for Paula Deen, there is no such footage. “Contrary to media reports, Ms. Deen does not condone or find the use of racial epithets acceptable. She is looking forward to her day in court.”
What do you think? Is there any chance that the National Enquirer could be on the right side of a story this time (bearing in mind that such a phenomenon has occurred on occasion)? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
