On Wednesday morning, Paula Deen gave an exclusive interview to Matt Lauer on the ‘Today Show’ where she talked about the racism controversy that cost her a major share of her fortune and business prospects.
Deen was able to start the interview with a calm demeanor but she broke down in tears later on. However, Lauer did not spare her and continued pushing even after seeing her crying.
She defended herself in that show by saying that some cruel lies had been said about her. She asserted that she was not a racist and believed that God had created every creature as equal.
By denying herself to label as a racist, Deen said that she had used those N-words almost a world ago. After being asked by Lauer, she also said that if any of her employees had done the same mistake as she did, she would not fire that person.
Deen also said that she was not going to change herself because she knew about her love for people.
