Racist Paula Deen Turns Down 'Dancing With The Stars' Offer: Video
"Paula Deen is passing on the paso doble. In the Aug. 19 issue of Us Weekly, a Dancing With the Stars source says the former Food Network star, 66, turned down an offer to compete on the ABC smash.
`The dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her,` explains a Deen source. (The Paula`s Best Dishes host was dropped by the Food Network in June after she admitted to once using the N-word during a videotaped deposition. The Southern star has also lost multiple endorsement deals.) "
Uttering the N-Word in a fit of anger doesn`t necessarily make you a racist, but if you repeatedly and almost casually use the vitriolic word you are a damn racist. Several of Deen`s employees and acquaintances have accused her of not only using the N-Word, but of of treating her black employees with disrespect.
Most of the companies that had endorsement deals with Deen have done the right thing and kicked her to the curb. Shame on the producers of "Dancing with the Stars" for taking advantage of Deen`s notoriety by offering her an opportunity to compete on the hit show.
DWTS isn`t the appropriate forum for a racist, or an extremely obese woman who is too old to walk more than a few feet a time, let alone dance.
