From Radar Online:
An explosive new lawsuit accuses celebrity chef, Paula Deen and her brother, of using the N word and of sexual harassment, infliction of emotional distress and assault, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
The lawsuit is on behalf of a past employee of Paula Deen Enterprises, Lisa Jackson and documents a shocking pattern of alleged racism and sexism displayed by both Deen and her brother, Bubba Hiers.
In one example, Jackson states that she was appointed by Deen to handle the catering and staff for Bubba’s wedding in 2007, and she asked Deen what the servers should wear: “Well what I would really like is a bunch of little n***ers to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around,” Jackson alleges Deen told her. “Now, that would be a true Southern wedding wouldn’t it? But we can’t do that because the media would be on me about that.”
Another alleged racist incident listed in the lawsuit: “In the presence of Ms. Jackson and Uncle Bubba’s restaurant manager and a vendor, Bubba Hiers stated they should send President Obama to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico so he could n***er-rig it.”
