Deen said it's "been a long time" since she's used the N-word, but she said she probably used it at some point when repeating a "conversation between Blacks." She added, "But that’s just not a word that we use as time has gone on. Things have changed since the ’60s in the south. And my children and my brother object to that word being used in any cruel or mean behavior." (Photo: Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images)
