Agreed, although I hold celebrities to a higher standard./this
It seems our society and culture are prone to react in an overblown manner, this affects her brand.
It also happened to Tiger and Kobe to a degree.
I'm sorry but I give a partial pass to people of a certain age that grew up in the south. It's no less ignorant, but living in a racist society is bound to impact people.
I never watched her or other food programs, what's the point of watching people prepare food, when most Americans heat up prepackaged and processed junk.
Less watching people prepare food and more actual preparing of food.
Good points, although isn't Bubba a non-related restaurant manager?I think she is, and DVC hit the nail right on the head. You don't admit to using the "n-word" on a single occasion unless you know that there are people who can verify you using it multiple times in the past. She also covered herself by admitting that she "may" have used it on other occasions. That's how you minimize it while immunizing yourself from the charge of lying about it.
Combine that with her tolerance of her brother's behavior and the plantation themed wedding, and it's reasonably clear. There comes a point where it isn't "playing the race card" to call someone a racist, and this is one of those times.
Bubba's alleged behavior seems so egregious that I can't easily believe the accusations. I've certainly known people like that, I just can't imagine anyone granting such a horrible person control of their business for decades.
