Paula Deen RIPS Lisa Jackson Over Bogus Racism Allegations, Lawsuit

by at . Comments

Paula Deen has filed a blistering response to the lawsuit that is torpedoing her career, claiming Lisa Jackson embellished or made up her racism allegations.

Yes, Paula admitted using racial slurs in the deposition she gave, but remember that she has NOT admitted anything Jackson has accused her of.

Paula Deen is Pissed

Deen said, under oath, that she has used racial epithets in the past, in conversations with friends and family - never in a discriminatory situation.

She is fuming that Jackson, who was fired as manager of Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House, is actually asking for damages based on racism.

Citing discrimination and harassment, Lisa Jackson claims she is "African-American adjacent" - her partner has a biracial niece, she claims in the lawsuit.

According to Deen, Jackson's niece is NOT African-American, but Hispanic.

Also, Paula is furious that Jackson alleges she used the n-word in connection with her brother Bubba's wedding, yet has never offered any proof of this.

Thus, Deen feels she was deposed in a lawsuit and forced to admit having used shameful - but quite possibly irrelevant - terms based on bogus claims.

As we know, in the wake of the scandal, she's been fired by Food Network ... and Walmart, Caesars, Smithfield Foods, Target, and (sort of) QVC.

The celebrity chef wants the case thrown out, and for a judge to throw the book at Jackson, fining her with sanctions for creating a BS harassment case.

Stay tuned ...

This is a witch hunt, nothing more. Lisa Jackson claims to be suing Deen on behalf of those "who are afraid to speak up" for an "undisclosed" amount of money. She has yet to state what she intends to do with the money, maybe rub it around on her "offended" feelings?

the same fascist liberal morons who want to crucify deen have no problem supporting a "former" imperial klansman like robert byrd. amazing.

Jackson better make sure she can back up all her accusations and have lots of witness. This white woman is only after money. Paul Deen can sue for for tens of millions if the Judge tosses out the suit.
With Jackson staying on the job for 5 years gives us reason to wonder why the suit. She was Manager so should have had control of the situation.

I can't wait to see all those publishers trying to get back your business I say to wait for one that hasn't had your business yet and make them your new publisher. Those that let you go will regret the day they let you go.

No, Lisa Jackson was NOT fired. She just didn't bother to show up to work. There is a letter floating on the internet by LJ, her thanking Paula and Bubba for all the nice things they've done for her. There is also a letter from LJ lawyer demanding $1.25 mill for LJ to keep her mouth shut. The stench of extortion is in the air. Also read LJ deposition, it sure doesn't follow the claim she filed. talk about frivolous lawsuits. Referring to her as a roach is too good for her.

I also say shame on the companies who went running to cancel all their contracts and dump her so unceremoniously...they should be ashamed of themselves for jumping on the condemnation bandwagon. I will not be doing business with them.
