After getting fired from Food Network for using the n-word a lot, Deen failed to appear for a Today show hit on Friday:
After Deen didn’t show for Friday’s “Today” telecast — “Paula Deen was scheduled to do an interview with us this morning, live in our studio, but we just found out, she’s a no-show,” host Matt Lauer was forced to ad-lib on air — she opted for a half-baked video apology to her fans instead.
“I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong I have done. I want to learn and grow from this,” Deen said in the 45-second video posted on YouTube. “Inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable.”
It took 66 years to figure out you’re not supposed to call people the n-word?
