HARRISONBURG (WHSV) At a local Barnes and Noble, the manager at the store said he hasn't heard anything from customers since the controversy surrounding Paula Deen erupted. Customers we spoke to outside the store are aware of the controversy.
Their reactions varied about Deen saying the N word and to the thought of purchasing her book.
"I would buy her books. I don't do much cooking anymore, but I said things like that to my children," said Jackie Robbins, a customer.
Another customer had the opposite reaction.
"Yeah, I don't believe I will be purchasing a Paula Deen book. I don't agree with what she said," said Mike Vanderpool, another customer.
Leaders of the Barnes and Noble said they will still carry Paula Deen magazines and books.
