Ex-Food Network star Paula Deen and Lara Trump have been pictured together at Mar-a-Lago.
The daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump captioned the Wednesdasy photo with a butter emoji, an American flag and a white heart. Deen did not mention the visit on her own social media pages.
The 75-year-old chef has kept a relatively low public profile since the Food Network fired her in 2013 for using racial slurs.
In a deposition for a discrimination lawsuit, Deen said “of course” she had used the N-word in the past. She claimed she was always joking.
“Most jokes are about Jewish people, rednecks, Black folks,” Deen said in the deposition. “They usually target, though, a group. Gays or straights, Black, redneck, you know … I can’t, myself, determine what offends another person.”
Deen was deposed after a former employee, Lisa Jackson, said she created a hostile work environment at her restaurant. The lawsuit was later dismissed.
Though she was canned by the Food Network, Deen continues to sell cookbooks and promote her recipes online.
