In a recent interview with People magazine, Paula Deen continues to apologize and says that she can empathize with what Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson went through.
Excerpts of the interview published by E! Online revealed Paula Deen continues to insist she “would never ever hurt anyone intentionally”, and admitted that she was so fixated on what people said online about her that she “could not get off the computer except to go to the bathroom and eat”.
Paula Deen’s public profile tanked last year after the controversy over her past use of the n-word went public, but others who went through similar scandals, like Phil Robertson, didn’t suffer as she did. Paula Deen says because of what she went through, she can empathize with others that go through the same thing.
