Lawsuit Alleges Rampant Paula Deen N-Word Use

by at . Comments

A racial slur against President Barack Obama is just one of the many explosive allegations in a bombshell lawsuit against Paula Deen and her brother, Bubba Hiers.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in Georgia on behalf of Lisa Jackson, a past employee of Paula Deen Enterprises. Among the stunning allegations in the lawsuit:

"In the presence of Ms. Jackson and a vendor, Bubba Hiers stated they should dispatch President Obama to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico so he could n***er-rig it."

The lawsuit also claims that Deen herself used the word in front of employees:

  • Paula Deen Pic
  • The President of the United States

According to the court documents, Jackson was appointed by Deen to handle catering for Bubba's wedding in 2007, and asked Deen what servers should wear.

Paula's alleged response?

"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. 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."

The documents state that Jackson became GM of Bubba’s Oyster and Seafood House in Savannah, Ga., which is co-owned by Deen and Bubba, after the previous GM (a male) apparently got fired for having sexual relations with the servers.

Deen allegedly said in a meeting, "If you think that I worked this hard to lose everything because of a piece of p**sy, you better think again, and now I'm going to do something I have never done I am going to put a woman in a man's job."

Jackson was given six months to turn the restaurant from a failure into a success and she did so, by doubling the profits of the restaurant.

However, she alleges she was sexually harassed by Deen's brother, who, amongst other accusations, routinely viewed pornography on a computer in a small office he shared with Jackson. "Bubba Hiers is a frequent customer of porn sites.

In the small office he shared with Jackson, "it was impossible for her to avoid pornography," the lawsuit states. Hiers also asked Jackson to "bring pictures of herself when she was young for him to view," the lawsuit alleges.

And, the suit continues, "At a weekly manager's meeting that included Ms. Jackson, Bubba Hiers brought printouts of an email that stated ‘Why Gay Marriage Should Be Legal,’ and showed pictures of women having sex with women."

"Mr. Hiers proceeded to pass emails around the table for everyone to see. No outrage was expressed and no action was taken in response to his behavior."

After five years working at the restaurant, Jackson left in 2010 because, she alleges, management did nothing about her complaints of sexual harassment.

Hey sometimes the blacks bring it upon themselves....they are NOT innocent. I have worked with them and they get away with a lot of shit....I have worked with Floor men (casinos) who were black and would talk to me and put white people. down. I have fixed food and black people would not eat it because they claim white people can't cook. Come on whites stick up for yourselves. Tell the black community they are not all innocent. I am getting sick and tired of the whites always being called racists. we have a President in the Whitehouse who is more racist then anyone. Speak out whites. stop being so mute and scared of the blacks.

Pornography,racial slurs,drinking on the job,that bad enough as it is. But Paula Deene? Im not surprised with the brothers behavior, Im surprised Paula let down her guard,and believed a family member would do right by her. I hope Ms Jackson has ALL her ducks in a row, and takes Bubba and his sister to the cleaners for putting up with that BS for 5 years. Paula you Jaime and Bobby had me fooled. I guess you cant teach an old southern dog new tricks. You need to get away from Bubba as fast as you can, and go have a talk with the LORD.

SNY, True , not everyone likes everyone , but we should be respectful of others and not use racial slurs, it really irritates me that people who are bigots dislike Obama simply because he is Black. Everyone should be judged by their record , not the color of their skin. As for the viewing of porno in HIS office, it was an office shared by the lady who brought the lawsuit. Would u want your wife, mother, daughter subjected to this filth ? Just saying . Hopefully the truth will come out .

@Magarietha....what is the K word?? KKK? Anyway, at this point it is a he said she said she said. I hope Jackson has the proof to back up the claims. A business should be a professional place, not a hostile environment. So having said that if it was so over the top why did Jackson stay so long? Deen has been in the public eye recently under a negative view. Perhaps Jackson was waiting for Ms. Deen's halo to tarnish. I don't know.
