    Anthony Bourdain: Paula Deen scandal ‘gives me no pleasure’


    Outspoken celebrity food personality and Paula Deen detractor Anthony Bourdain has remained uncharacteristically mum on her recent troubles — until now.


    Speaking to an Orlando Sentinel reporter, Bourdain had a solemn response when asked for his reaction.


    "It's gives me no pleasure at all," Bourdain told the paper. "It ain't pretty, either the charges or the reaction. I may have been an adversary or a critic of Miss Deen. It gives me no pleasure to see her torn apart by the people who were kissing her ass a week before."


    While this is the first he's discussed the latest Deen controversy, Bourdain previously spoke out against her, calling her "the worst, most dangerous person to America," who "revels in her unholy connections with evil corporations" and is "proud of the fact that her food is f---ing bad for you," in a 2011 TV guide interview.


    After Deen revealed on TODAY in 2012 that she had Type 2 diabetes — as well as a deal with diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk — Bourdain tweeted, "Thinking of getting into the leg-breaking business, so I can profitably sell crutches later."


    In the wake of her admission this summer that she had used racial slurs, Deen was dropped by a dozen companies, including the Food Network and her publisher. She and her brother are being sued by a former restaurant employee who alleged that the work environment was rife with discrimination and sexual harassment. The judge in the case has since thrown out the racial discrimination claims.

    I'm actually a big Bourdain fan, but that aside, I think Paula Deen got so fucking full of her fame and used to people constantly congratulating everything that came out of her mouth that she thought she could say those despicable things and there would be no backlash. Fucking stupefied by fame. Un fucking believeable.
