    No. People need to lighten up and move on. Far worse things have been uttered by others who still have their jobs.

    No, it shouldn't, unless they still have such an attitude. Firing someone for a word uttered 40 years ago is past ridiculous in my opinion. I wonder though if there is more coming, some sort of proof to this lawsuit and Food Network is acting in accordance with information which has yet to be released.

    NO

    What kind of a country are we becoming when we destroy someone for saying something 40 years ago? A very sick one.

    Personally I think she should have told the Food Network and all her critics over that to F.O. and then ask them if at any point in their life have they said anything that another would have found insulting or offensive I suspect no one can honestly say they haven't.

    Bill Maher Talks Paula Deen Controversy With 'Real Time' Panel, Defends Deen... Sort Of (VIDEO)

    The one black person on the panel said that yes, she does need to go away.

    Today, a R (can't think of her name, Amy something, black woman) said that yes, she needs to go away.

    My question is, was it really 40 years ago? I've read some news stories saying that she is just as racist now as she was then. Including the deplorable idea she had of having black waiters pretend to be slaves while they waited tables at her relative's wedding.

    I didn't like her diabetic, coronary artery by-pass specials she called food so I haven't paid all that much attention to her until this.

    Toxic food, toxic mouth but I don't think this will ruin her. In fact, racists are rushing out to buy her fatty food/cookbooks even as we speak.

    Paula brought it on herself with her stupid apologys. Plus her choices of food are disgusting. Honey...y'all. She should just drown herself in a pot of grits.

    They can't do that or there'd be no more taxpayers to pay for all those bribes to Democratic constituencies.

    I don't know if Deen is a racist or not, given she campaigned for Obama in 2008 and is a registered democrat, I wonder if things have not been exaggerated, quite a bit. On top of that there are charges she would openly view porn so employees would be exposed to such as well.
