Two years after accusations of racism nearly destroyed her food empire, it seems Paula Deen has learned nothing!

For the record, a racist attitude is not something that can be apologized away.? Feeling bad about it is not going to wash away all the years she felt ‘some kinda way’ about other cultures.?

Early Tuesday morning, Deen’s social media accounts sent out a tweet and Facebook post with a photo depicting the cook dressed as Lucille Ball’s character from the 1950s television sitcom “I Love Lucy.”

The photo has since been deleted but as you know… nothing is ever truly ‘deleted’ from the net.

Now over a year later, in a videotaped deposition, Deen admitted to once using the N-word in the past. The 66-year-old Southerner was subsequently fired by the Food Network and lost multiple endorsement deals.? Until recently, Winfrey had remained silent on her friend’s latest controversy.

Oprah had recently been asked about her southern fried BFF during an interview with Extra, but merely laughed and declined to comment, stating:
“Oh my god! I don’t have anything to do with Paula Deen,” she insisted. “She is not the first white lady to use the N-word! Good lord!”

Deen first explained that she only used the term in reference to ‘bad’ Black people and the cook, born in 1947, also attempted to add age to the list of reasons for her racist comments.
A statement issued via her company, explained:
?[Paula] was born 60 years ago when America?s South had schools that were segregated, different bathrooms, different restaurants and Americans rode in different parts of the bus. This is not today.?
Up until this point there’s been no apology but Paula had been expected to do so during a scheduled appearance on The Today Show this morning (she was a no-show). Now Deen has posted a short apology on YouTube and appeals to the masses to forgive her for her mistake.
