Paula Deen says she used racial slur but doesn’t tolerate hate

(CBS) -- A representative for Paula Deen says the celebrity chef “does not condone” racial epithets, following reports that Deen admitted to using “the N-word” and once planned a wedding reception with all black waiters.

Deen’s admission of using the slur came while she was providing deposition as part of a $1.2M lawsuit filed against her and her brother Earl “Bubba” Biers by Lisa Jackson, the former manager of a Savannah, Ga., restaurant owned by the two siblings.
