Paula Deen has been a lightning rod of controversy in the days since she admitted that she has Type-2 Diabetes. But things are about to get a lot worse for the Queen of Southern Cooking. Deen and her brother are being sued for sexual harassment.
TMZ is reporting that Lisa Jackson, who worked as general manager at a restaurant co-owned by Deen and her brother Bubba Hiers, is suing the two for allegedly rampant inappropriate behavior.
Jackson claims that Hiers brought “inescapable pornography” to the Savannah, GA seafood restaurant. She also says that Hiers often looked at dirty websites on the restaurant computer. But it gets worse.
The suit states that Hiers allegedly asked Jackson to bring pictures of herself to work and told her, “You have nice legs.” She also claims that Deen’s brother made numerous offensive jokes, racist comments and made unwanted advances.
Neither Deen nor Hiers have commented on the matter.
