"Bubba and I, neither one of us, care what the color of your skin is" or what gender a person is, Deen said. "It's what's in your heart and in your head that matters to us."
"Inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable," Deen said in the 45 second video posted on YouTube. "I've made plenty of mistakes along the way but I beg you, my children, my team, my fans, my Nike Lebron Red White Blue
SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) The Food Network said Friday it's dumping Paula Deen, barely an hour after the celebrity cook posted a videotaped apology online begging forgiveness from fans and critics troubled by her admission to having used racial slurs in the past.
But she also insisted she and her brother have no tolerance for bigotry.
"Food Network will not renew Paula Deen's contract when it expires at the end of this month," the statement said. Network representatives declined further comment. A representative for Deen did not immediately return phone and email messages seeking comment on the decision.
Deen initially planned to give her first interview Nike Lebron 11 Christmas Cheap on the controversy Friday to the "Today" show, which promoted her scheduled appearance as a live exclusive. Instead, host Matt Lauer ended up telling viewers that Deen's representatives pulled the plug because she was exhausted after her flight to New York.

During the deposition, Deen was peppered with questions about her racial attitudes. At one point she's asked if she thinks jokes using the N word are "mean." Deen says jokes often target minority groups and "I can't, myself, determine what offends another person."
"I want to apologize to everybody, uh, for the wrong that I've done," Deen says as the video begins. "Uh, I want to learn and grow from this."
The news came as Deen worked to repair the damage to her image, which has spawned a vast empire of cookbooks, a bimonthly cooking magazine, a full line of cookware, food items like spices and even furniture.
The Food Network, which made Deen a star with "Paula's Home Cooking" in 2002 and later "Paula's Home Cooking" in 2008, weighed in with a terse statement Friday afternoon.
equivalency, Diana, as you probably already know. It's a big favorite among these people so eager to defend bigotry and racial slurs. In this instance, it consists of comparing apples to oranges and concluding that they are equivalent. In other instances, the fallacy takes the form of "But other people do it, too!" From a six year old that is a silly argument, and six year olds soon learn that it is. Apparently, lots of the bigotry defenders here never learned that lesson.
Did it ever occur to anyone that flags don't have feelings, but PEOPLE do?? If I call our flag a "rag" (which I wouldn't, before some people freak out), the flag would not feel a thing. But if I call another HUMAN BEING a known word that is insulting and derogatory and meant to remind them that they are of less value than I am, that is CRUEL, IGNORANT, and HURTFUL. The HUMAN BEING has feelings which obviously some people are not willing to acknowledge. I do not understand how those things can be compared to each other. REALLY????
Deen also acknowledged she briefly considered hiring all black waiters for her brother's 2007 wedding, an idea inspired by the staff at a restaurant she had visited with her husband. She insisted she quickly dismissed the idea.
Court records show Deen sat down for a deposition May 17 in a discrimination lawsuit filed last year by a former employee who managed Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House, a Savannah restaurant owned by Deen and her brother, Bubba Hiers. The ex employee, Lisa Jackson, says she was sexually harassed and worked in a hostile environment rife with innuendo and racial slurs.
The 66 year old Savannah kitchen celebrity has been swamped in controversy since court documents filed this week revealed Deen told an attorney questioning her under oath last month that she has used the N word. "Yes, of course," Deen said, though she added, "It's been a very long time."
The online video allowed Deen and her staff a direct appeal to viewers and complete control of what she said and how she said it. Deen adopted a solemn tone as she looked straight into the camera. Still, her recorded apology featured three obvious edits with the picture quickly fading out between splices during a statement just five sentences long.
