SAVANNAH, Ga. — A federal judge Monday threw out race discrimination claims by a former Savannah restaurant manager whose lawsuit against Paula Deen has already cost the celebrity cook a valuable chunk of her culinary empire.
Lisa Jackson sued Deen and her brother, Bubba Hiers, last year saying she suffered from sexual harassment and racially offensive talk and employment practices that were unfair to black workers during her five years as a manager of Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House. Deen is co-owner of the restaurant, which is primarily run by her brother.
I can't wait to see the toadying that begins when the formerly judgmental and bullying idiots like Food Network and Wal-Mart and all the other people who have been piling on this woman for months start to slowly but surely try to creep back into business with all of them! If she's smart, she'll tell them all to go screw themselves.
