Butter queen and chef Paula Deen is in a bit of hot water herself.

A lawsuit from a former restaurant employee accuses Deen and her brother of racial and sexual discrimination, but while Deen admits to previously using racial slurs, she says she doesn't tolerate hateful behavior, The Associated Press reported.

In a court deposition filed Monday in federal court, an attorney for former restaurant manager Lisa Jackson presses the 66-year-old Deen about her racial views and those of her brother, Bubba Hiers. Deen is asked if she's ever used "the N-word." She responds: "Yes, of course."

Deen says she likely used the slur in the 1980s after a black man held her at gunpoint at the Georgia bank where she worked.
