WATCH: Paula Deen Begs For Forgiveness In Apology Video
In a video released Friday afternoon, the 66-year-old celebrity chef and Food Network star said, “I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong that I’ve done. I want to learn and grow from this.”
“Inappropriate, hurtful language it totally, totally unacceptable,” she continued. The video ends with Deen saying, “Please forgive me for the mistakes that I’ve made.”
Her full statement from the abbreviated video is below.
After spending all day soul searching and trying to figure out how to deal with what I did, I recorded a video trying to do the right thing. In the end, Ifelt that I needed to just be myself, say I am sorry and beg for frogiveness.
What said was wrong and hurtful. I know that and will do everything that I can do make it right. I am not about hate, and I will devote myself to showing my family, friends and fans how to live a life helping others, lifting us all up, and spreading love.
