Because every business owner has a national profile that can potentially bring huge amounts of unwanted press and pressure.

One of the nice things about her potential decline is that she's such a phony (designed to cash in on tourist dollars from Yankees).
She's like a minstrel show of actual (white and black) southern culture*.

The less I have to hear about her, the better.

Interesting. My guide says Paula Deen, but my TV is showing Giada's giant head.

Yep, that's it, everyone is looking at Giada's head. 8-)

Who really cares, almost everyone has used that word at some point in their life, especially a 66 year old woman born and raised in Georgia. This is a huge non story, I think she's getting a raw deal here

It's not just about using a certain word, altho that's certainly getting the most attention. There are a whole slew of things that illustrate that she operated her business in a way that was almost openly accepting of a discriminatory and derogatory environment.

My favorite snippet so far has been her wanting to do a "plantation wedding" replete with black waiters in white coats.

My preference is that people that can't live and let live live elsewere. If you want to hear less about people you don't like and live a life where everyone is shut off and the same, there are places you can do that.

My Facebook feed is filled with Deen apologists this morning. <charcoal>ing crackers. :lol:

Someone on twitter (Stoosh?) posted one of her highly rated recipes - buttered english peas, which consists of a can of peas and 1/4 stick of butter. SO MUCH TALENT. :lol:

The evidence would not have come to light without those laws.

I don't think there was even a suggestion of any discrimination on her part, just her use of a certain word (not even allegedly directed at the accuser or anybody else) years ago. I consider it evidence that this country is becoming a bunch of politically correct, thin skinned, namby-pambies.
