WATCH: Paula Deen Apologizes for Racist Remarks

Earlier this week, it came out that Paula Deen might be just a little bit racist. Then on Friday morning, she didn’t show up for an interview on the Today show, where Matt Lauer was set to ask her about it. And now, she’s released this apology via YouTube.

If you don’t feel like watching Paula Deen apologize (although it’s worth it, if only for the bad editing and bad makeup), here’s what she has to say:

“I wanna apologize to everybody for the wrong that I’ve done. Uh, I want to learn and grow from this… Inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable. I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way, but I beg you–my children, my team, my fans, my partners–I beg for your forgiveness. Please forgive me for the mistakes that I’ve made.”

So what do you think? Does Paula Deen deserve forgiveness? Will this bring an end to her unhealthy food empire?
