Addressing allegations of racism on the Today show on June 26, 2013, the former Food Network star broke down in tears. "If there's anyone out there that have never said something that they wish they could take back. If you're out there please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me. Please, I want to meet you," Deen said, addressing the camera. "I is what I is, and I'm not changing."
