Following this morning’s Today show interview cancellation, Paula Deen has released a YouTube video apologizing for her offensive remarks in which she admitted in a sworn deposition to using the n-word, among other racist statements.
The 46-second apology opens with Deen saying, “I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong that I’ve done. I want to learn and grow from this … inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable.” Despite the short length, the video is oddly shown in multiple takes. UPDATE: The video was taken down, but others users have captured and uploaded. Watch below:
Update 2: Here is the new video.
