Paula Deen’s Posse: 10 Celebrities With Racist Tendencies [PHOTOS]


Former cooking show maven Paula Deen got cooked, no pun intended, by Twitter after admitting her fondness for the N-Word in a court deposition. Although the one-time Food Network star went on a “I’m Not A Racist” apology tour, it all rang hollow in the end. Deen isn’t the first celebrity to show racist tendencies, however. 

From cable news talking heads, to radio hosts and even Hollywood actors, several public figures have revealed a side of themselves that isn’t entirely racially inclusive.

Hip-Hop Wired takes a look at 10 celebrities who would feel right at home at a Klan rally—who all have copped pleas otherwise, of course.

    MMA fighter Nate Diaz should bee added, he says the N-word. None of the those celebrities are a surprise.


    Reese Witherspoon, Glen Close…….BTW: Many on the list don’t have tendencies, but are outright RACIST!!

  • Will

    On Mel Gibson: the tapes were recorded by his ex-GIRLFRIEND. and the anti semitic comments were made after a dui in 2006. Not saying it was ok to say these things, just a poorly written article.

  • BLBeamer

    I don’t think what Glenn Beck is quoted here as saying can be interpreted as racist. Just calling someone a racist doesn’t make you a racist. If it did, the author of this article would be the world’s biggest racist.

  • Gumfriend

    Im not sure if Sheen counts the same way as the others. We’re so used to hearing the n word used against blacks that we naturally assume that’s who it’s referring to. I’ve heard whites call other whites that word to imply that they’re trash. It’s just a more hurtful word.

    • Cheesus

      The fact that it stands for trash is in itself quite racist, not just hurtful.

    • BeBe Renee

      Denise Richards has a black grandmother…

  • arevr18

    This entire list is racist because it’s only white people.

  • Samuel

    so apparently only white people are racists. should probably add Farrakhan, Spike Lee, and D.L. Chandler to your list.

  • Diana Martinez

    You should also count all the whites, latinos, asians and middle easterners who feel the same way but won’t say it out loud. Being privy to a lot of conversations with different people, you’d be shocked at how bad it really is, it’s just not said out loud. I’d say that with the exception of Blacks, at least 50-60% of all other people have some racist tendencies. Some out of ignorance and fear, others out of personal experience and statistics.
