The 13 Most Offensive Statements Uttered By Celebrities in 2013
In the biggest story of summer 2013, Food Network's Southern sweetheart Paula Deen admitted in a lawsuit deposition to using the n-word in the past. What's more, the deposition also revealed that Deen had discussed plans for her son to have a Southern plantation-themed wedding, complete with African-American male servers dressed in dinner jackets and bow ties. Deen also admitted she did not think using the n-word in a joke was wrong, because most jokes "usually target, though, a group."
After all this, Deen still did not think she was racist. She released not one, but two apology videos, but it seemed to be too little, too late. She lost her show on the Food Network, along with several endorsement deals, and when the lawsuit was finally dismissed, no one seemed to care — the damage had already been done.
But Deen wasn't the only celebrity to put her foot in her mouth this year. Plenty of other stars let some pretty offensive words slip and lived to regret it. Here are some of the most offensive things uttered by celebrities in 2013, from sexist statements to racist statements to fat-shaming. Click through if you dare — cringing may ensue. Don't say we didn't warn you.
