With a very tearful declaration Paula Deen spoke to the Today show’s Matt Lauer about how the controversy over her accusations, of offensively using the “N-Word”, has affected her and defined “her truth”.
She even proclaimed that she has received the support of the Rev. Jesse Jackson, and that anyone whose said anything in their lives that they wish they could take back should simply stone her – reminiscent of the biblical lesson where Jesus urged a crowd ready to punish a woman caught in adultery; “He who has no sin, cast the first stone” (paraphase).
What are your thoughts on Paula’s response to this rather contentious issue?
