"Throw a Rock at My Head!" Paula Deen's Tearful 'Today' Show Plea
Southern TV chef Paula Deen broke down Wednesday in her first TV interview since the controversy erupted surrounding allegations that she used a racial epithet. It's still uncertain whether or not her tearful plea to the public on the 'Today' show did her any good.
In the interview, she alluded to the Bible passage in which it was commanded that 'he who is without sin should cast the first stone.'
"If there's anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back, if you're out there please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me," she choked out through tears.
Deen admitted to three potential instances in which she used a racial epithet in the past. So far, she's been dropped by the Food Network and Smithfield Foods. She says QVC is still standing by her side.
Deen issued a statement saying she doesn't support her fans boycotting the Food Network, however, despite her firing.
