    If anyone ever said the n word, they should be fired from their job and never have future employment.

    Oh that Lawrence O'Donnell and Cokie Roberts got the same treatment when they made hateful statements, but MSNBC and NPR have stood up for them.

    PC is selective.

    If she is being fired for words she said 20 years ago, then let it go. If it was in the last year or two, yes, she should be fired. I just wish they would fire everyone who uses the fat word.

    As a huge Paula Deen fan, I agree with the Food Network's decision, but with sorrow. I hope Paula finds a way forward and a path to forgiveness for her mistakes. "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her."
