This is a Fox News alert I'm Kimberly -- well this just and the -- never has announced it will not renews celebrity chef Paula -- contract.
When it expires at the end of the month -- this is following her admission that she is used a racial slur.
In the past.
Levine is being sued for racial discrimination -- admitted during a legal deposition to using -- clerk she apologized today and is asking for forgiveness.
I want to apologize to everybody.
For the wrong that -- -- Our got a learning growth from the -- inappropriate.
Hurtful language is totally.
I have made -- any of mistakes along the way but big do you.
-- fighting -- not partners.
At -- for your forgiveness.
Okay so we're gonna go through some of the facts of this -- -- bring around the table which is you know this is -- she admitted to do and doing in the past not something that she said she's done currently or anything that she specifically said to an employee.
This lawsuit is based on family members -- -- other employees of her business.
And during this legal deposition she was asked if she has ever used -- a racial slurs and she spoke truthfully and said she had.
But it was quite some time ago so is this apology enough -- should she be forgiven.
And you know what what do you think about the fact that the Food Network has now let her -- -- canceled.
What I've looked at her cookbook and she has some -- -- meals and there she has a cheeseburger.
With a -- paddy in between two donuts so I don't know how she could be racist if she's trying to kill so many white people.
But it does make you wonder what she calls blackened chicken when she's alone a why let you know what you know what I love about she claims that she's a victim of prejudice when you look at that tape.
Apparently it's because everyone thinks she's in -- -- but she's got a hold back on the make up.
Begging forgiveness and -- forgiving country right.
Are we at forgiving country and someone remind -- why I went to you for at it's I -- again is a small again Friday out came your way then I am not Irish banks telling how many decades chance to speak at his you have not done enough television and about in fact.
I'm very nice -- You don't use that language to sell you know I was mistaken if there's a reason look I think the Food Network did what they had to do when.
-- -- -- -- -- -- But she didn't do it on the show she didn't do matter and no matter what she's saying -- I'm sorry for things that I have said.
Privately this where she was referring to the back where she -- used a racial slur.
He's in a private not Saddam and Kimberly -- a private conversation asking her what has been hit kittens tomcats that you've ever use use.
I have bomb with your husband in the bedroom could -- got to they did the right to ask that question.
Did the right that's me.
Credit anyone and you -- my point is it -- it's got to be where there's smoke there's fire and has been deeper than just her saying her husband's news and word wanted to.
She's being -- I know this is she just admitted she said in the past it's not even relevant to the case that she's being sued for because she's not even the one who is alleged to have committed the racial discrimination.
But she's the head of the company and they and the deep pocket and a woman who is claiming the racial discrimination.
Is a Caucasian.
They can be added into your absolutely right but that's the background the fact that it just so we kind of -- out how to meaningful discussion -- really she feels like she did something wrong or she wouldn't have done that we -- YouTube did you with all you know Timothy.
Baker make up an apology -- -- must insincere apology and -- and I look I I have met her son I don't think I've ever met her.
You like somebody insulting that they what they were doing was really wrong lesson she she also that -- also accused.
Allowing this type.
Racist joke -- -- racial slurs went -- and also.
Allowing pornography in the workplace -- she felt herself as a a big issues a major leader she is a brand.
She is responsible for this type of behavior and sounds to me like at least she thought she needed to say an apology.
-- you -- -- obvious she responsible she allowed this type of conduct this culture to go on.
At her -- company.
But -- I just wanted to say that she also said that she is stated that she made jokes about Jews gay people black people and read next now that pretty much covers the the territory.
They'll start people -- I -- -- you attribute.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If you money H meetings that he's got -- -- but I think I I get -- I've ever heard -- this one before I ever watched through channels.
And in the whole thing board and that net dirtier evidence and the food channel is your -- -- Did you know unlike a lot yeah I'm like hi I'm eating it I don't think that's what I have to -- I -- I'm not really defending the idea pornography in the workplace but if everybody kind of I give -- to everybody -- this is honest.
-- ought to be the workplace it's a huge issue.
In every word play isn't she is allowing the pornography and like I'm its growth.
Gross if they're cooking while they're watching that -- -- grosses me out is also one of her employees that it went in the restaurants and that they.
He heard her use some this language is well.
But -- well that's a fair points of the -- don't think she admitted to legally under -- is that she used this point two derogatory toward racial slurs a lot of smoke.
I got a -- -- -- rob points alone and she told her husband Jeff I dress and look this is a decision they had to make they might have even more information.
We're going with the news as we know it right now what's been Abbott confirmed.
And we can say that she's been like that didn't have a point that isn't one that -- you could probably relate to which is that she says quote I can't myself determine what offends another person.
-- -- -- -- Life went well I don't apologize for things and a commercial -- went wide I have to apologize for that why that offensive.
Yeah now on these candidates that -- obviously offensive Latvia and word.
Well and random acts that's -- -- -- but that's one of the accusations as -- -- using the -- -- so I think she -- as -- good idea that it -- Next point that the guys I'm -- -- the -- how does.
Coming data may -- now is it relevant.
For her to be fired from the food channel today for something she claims she sat and I didn't say any more twenty years it now just imagine that -- -- worked at the Food Network.
She would not be placed on administrative leaving get to access your computer and get all the benefits in the pensions the pitch out private come corporation says.
You're out of here -- do with the government it's completely different -- -- the government you can do all sorts of terrible things other people and target people for their beliefs are there.
Content of their thoughts with the equipment parts of the Tea Party -- the government your agent and operate under Ricky Bobby -- Really you believe honestly leave -- Derek said with a -- you think she's just stop using a twenty years ago I get a else's stuff I mean she's.
And he did I say I would.
-- we haven't even brought up.
What she wanted as an ideal wedding -- the plantation style wedding.
Which is what -- obviously it's affected the most offensive part.
Which was using the black men with black man matters as his wife Susan in black votes so that yeah I did this is the Sevilla a lot of a lot of those guys -- the lenders have fronts -- it was -- so as somebody who has a lot of experience in banking banking.
Begging for forgiveness do you think that she should be forgiven do you think this apology was sufficient.
No because she she it I would have to says that's true about most the other thing she said but when it comes to.
A racist joke like that race using racist comments that's -- where I draw a line I think everybody should be gone.
Mean you regardless said if she's used it in the past and a personal conversation are you being more specific about.
Her workplace and the fact that she was allowing this -- and I would.
I give her about pornography thing pieces that unless personally to let you get into who's spent a glass house and I'll let.
But I just think he can't you can't cross that line and I don't believe it was -- years ago people who I know who do use that.
Are you know constantly doing a -- then they're not.
But Bob -- that's -- she's under house and then she admits that.
She was gonna lie about other times that she's used it.
Why did she admit to it.
From twenty years ago why didn't she just say now I find it offensive but -- she shed on no I didn't want to hear on the -- nobody follow that -- and -- would you do it ten years ago you do it last year have you ever done.
But since it's too many years I don't blog -- network they have.
There's they're not worried about holidays -- must admit they have a -- profit making organization.
And she was going to bring down their reputation so do you really need that headache when you could find a celebrity -- got any -- -- -- I hate to create a new star.
I hate to point out -- keep -- there are some some very.
Important people historically in America.
Who were senators who probably use the N word many times.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- End.
It did the Food Network do what do the right thing right they have the right to do with it you know -- -- contention is yes they did the right thing they did what they had to do to make sure that -- -- viewers.
Aren't offended by what -- dean said find free market capitalism.
Fire her get rid of her.
Whether you want to holder personally accountable that's another discussion.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- From and I think that's -- -- major crimes against people but dogs he had dogs and they're not -- dogs.
So I'd be willing to -- -- some other problems there's some.
Remember when she was diagnosed with type two diabetes yes and what medical questions from a lot of -- fans or other viewers and critics in the media was.
OK if you have had this disease why have you not done something about -- -- pitching all the types of food on people.
-- on the same day -- Sheehan got endorsed by one of the big diabetes drugs.
And then the question was what did you do this for the money.
So I think that the network maybe that is most things that was the straw that broke the camel's events around big diet -- -- on a diet you gotta battle -- health.
-- -- haven't -- listen and if forgive us lord knows I've had this forgiveness for so many times a -- people are forgiving.
And I and my faith is about forgiveness is -- in this situation.
It is it is intolerable to allow that's before and I think the Food Network has every reason the world.
Because why don't have to put up -- with this you -- they're gonna hear about it work at this this case is over.
It's gonna take care her ranch got to -- Tammy Faye -- and start being reported.
Martina let's look at exactly dream led to guys just keep in mind for a second this isn't somebody US sort of marginal popularity she's hugely popular -- at the tremendous following.
It's been a very successful business element that's it they're going to be fallout for the -- that or if you're Christian you'll you'll forgive her move on -- she's -- -- forgive her but the Food Network is completely in the right.
And it and in doing what they don't and the bigger they are the harder they fall.
Current or if she can get a -- out zealots like relief I think the fact that I think anything.
Now that you're completely unnecessary you know we're -- really serious discussion about race and culture and you focus on me.
I don't know about it here short jokes yes she didn't make -- -- -- people that I had that she thought.
And well let's not.
And I don't let let -- yeah.
There I don't know why I'm moderating a block and I'm trying to heat it delicately he did -- have started to really agreed with -- points.
-- -- -- you.
I love numbers on no I did it I'm not that both sides see what happens around here I guess there is hot -- and people being at a --
