Oprah is not here for the usage of the “N-word.” Recently, the Big O told Parade Magazine, You cannot be my friend and use that word around me. It shows my age, but I feel strongly about it…I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree.” Well, it’s no wonder Extra TV’s A.J. Calloway asked Oprah about Paula Deen, because as far as we know, they’re friends (Deen’s been on Oprah’s show countless times and has even stayed at her house once for “OWN’s Next Chapter”) and it’s obvious the butter-loving cook has used the “N-word.”
Oprah let it be known, “Everyone’s saying, ‘What do you think of Paula Deen!’ Oh my god! I don’t have anything to do with Paula Deen. She is not the first white lady to use the ‘n’ word! Good lord!”
Well, obviously Oprah doesn’t want to hear anyone saying the “N-word,” but she definitely doesn’t want to have to answer about Paula Deen using it.
