Should people get fired for using racist comments or words in the work place? Is it right to use such language? A situation like this is happening and is trying to be solved. Recently a celebrity chief on the Food Network show name Paula Deen used racial slur around her work place and got fired from her job. She lost a huge endorsement deal and it’s costing her millions for what she has done.  This caused a big situation because of what she said. There are many people who see this as something that is wrong for her to have done. Some people are now disappointed in her for saying such things that should not have been said. On the other hand, there are also some people who are supporting her. They said that everyone has used racial comments or word before and she should not be disciplined for what she had done. They also said that if everyone got fired for saying anything racist, everyone would be jobless. She has many supports and fans that are on her side because they do not think it was a big situation for her to lose her job and everything else. Paula Deen said, “If there’s anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back, if you’re out there, please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me. Please, I want to meet you. I want to meet you.” When she said this, it was for forgiveness and wanted to prove to everyone that there is really no one out there that has not said anything racists before. Is it fair for others who used racists comments or words before to not get fired from their work place? From what some people see is that it is not fair that some people who does say racists things does not get fired from there job, but since Paula Deen is more of a celebrity and more well known she gets fired from her job. There are more people who are able to hear and see what she has said or done. People are able to point it out more publicly because she’s a celebrity.
