iReporter Patrick Tull of Lumberton, New Jersey, responded to the controversy over Paula Deen's use of racially-charged language with the video above.
"I thought it was something she recently said, not something way in the past," he continued. "The question is, who hasn't used the "N-word" in one form or another? The context may be different in various environments but its use is not cool as far as I'm concerned. So I felt the need to share my view on the issue because it has gotten out of control.”
