A stunning admission from celebrity Chef Paula Deen has left many of her fans shocked.

Deen recently admitted to using the N-word as well as peppering her conversations with racial jokes about Jews, blacks and rednecks.

The admission came during a question-and-answer session for a lawsuit filed by a former manager of Deen’s savannah, Georgia restaurant.

The deposition was taken in May as part of a civil lawsuit filed against Deen and her brother by a former employee. The worker claims there was sexual and racial harassment.
