Paula Deen lost millions because she said a bad word about someone who had held a gun to her head, twenty years after it happened.
You know I'd never heard of this woman so I looked it up. You are in fact totally wrong.
She in fact did not have her show renewed when a court case was started against her, her brother and her company alleging "several instances of sexual and racial workplace discrimination." The gun incident was one she admitted (during the case as testimony) to using the word Nigger about and the show was already canceled by then, it didn't cause the cancellation.
