Bill Maher stupidly jumps up to defend Paula Deen for the outrage caused by her use of the n-word and racial jokes. I have also thrown in her apology as well for good measure.
Maher joins Dr. Boyce Watkins, who in an appearance on CNN’s AC360 argued that Deen’s age and environment should be taken into account when judging her; Maher also joins Roland Martin who argued that Black people should be just as upset when other Black people use the n-word as racist White people.
As previously reported by NewsOne, Deen was fired Friday afternoon by the Food Network. They released the following statement:
“Food Network will not renew Paula Deen’s contract when it expires at the end of this month.”
Deen was supposed to make an appearance on the ‘Today’ show Friday morning and have a no holds barred interview with Matt Lauer, but she cancelled at the last minute.
