Paula Deen Apology Lovebscott

Paula Deen came under heavy fire earlier this week when it was alleged that she frequently uses racial slurs and at one point wanted Black waiters to play slaves at a wedding.

Her lawyer initially claimed the reports were untrue, but today Paula has issued an apology. In a video posted to her YouTube channel, Paula states:

“I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong that I’ve done, and I want to learn and grow from this,” Deen says in the highly edited video. “Inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable. I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way, but I beg you, my children, my team, my fans, my partners, I beg for your forgiveness. Please forgive me for the mistakes that I’ve made.”
