Just when people were (kind of) starting to forget that Paula Deen admitted to using th N-Word awhile back, she made a statement that quickly became a reminder. During an interview with People magazine set to hit stands Friday, Deen said:

 I’m fighting to get my name back. I feel like ’embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out. He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying.

Deen was referring to NFL prospect Michael Sam.

What do you think about her comment? Was she wrong for wording it the way she did? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram @1067WTLC.
