Deen has apologized enough for her egregious error

Paula Deen is not the first and is not going to be the last person to be called bigot, racist, etc.

We all as humans do make mistakes from time to time and get away with it, too, but people who are famous or public figures should be more careful.

But look at the way she is handling the situation: Apologies after apologies, interview after interview, tears after tears. This is more than enough.

The majority of us understood on the very first apology that a mistake was made and not a crime was committed. The rest will never be satisfied, even if Deen is put in front of the firing squad.

Are Deen's money-making contracts more important than her pride and dignity? If not, please stop begging and try to move on with your life.
