Lawyers, Use Twitter Responsibly!

 
Sexual harassment: what a mess! Not only are Paula Deen, celebrity chef, and her brother being charged with sexual harassment, but the lawyer who is representing their accuser seems to be sexually harassing her a bit himself. Well, that depends on your interpretation. But Matthew Billips, who is representing Lisa Jackson in accusing Emmy-Award winning Deen has tweeted to his Twitter Followers that he “planned on ‘doing’ and ‘undressing’ her [Deen] during discovery and that using her was a ‘real hoot.’”

Such language seems to have peeved Deen, 66, who filed a motion to have Billips banned for using “obscene, bawdy, and racially charged language,” on the Twitter account that is been deleted, but U.S. Magistrate Judge G.R. Smith denied all this and said that “the court is satisfied that those tweets were filed simply to embarrass Billips and for no other purpose.” In other words, Deen is being belligerent.

Deen, meanwhile, is being charged with her frequent use of the word “nigger,” and for making offensive jokes. She said, “It’s just what they are – they’re jokes .. most jokes are about Jewish people, rednecks, blackfolks,..I can’t determine what offends another person.”

Perhaps what’s more offensive is the charge that her brother sexually harassed Lisa Jackson for five years, and also watched pornography on the work computer. The two are being sued for $1.2 million dollars.
