Home Improvement to the rescue.

Actor Tim Allen came to Food Network star Paula Deen‘s defense over her recent claims of racism.

Paula Deen’s use of the n-word has caused quite a stir, resulting in her losing endorsement deals and her cooking show.

The iconic actor spoke about how he feels the “n-word” is more offensive than the slur it’s supposed to soften.

“I do a movie with Martin Lawrence and pretty soon they’re referring to me, ‘hey my n—-r’s up.’ So I’m the n—-r’ if I’m around you guys but 7 feet away, if I said n—-r, it’s not right. It’s very confusing to the European mind how that works, especially if I’ve either grown up or evolved or whatever, it literally was growing up in Colorado with Hispanics and Angloss, that’s all I remember.”

“So when Paula Deen (admits her language) they go after her.”

Tim later sounded off on where the state of the world is going:

“So this debate rages in the public, but when it goes out to the comedy world, we’re not even allowed to say it, and I gotta refer to it as the N word, F word, B word…it gets all the way down to the line,” Allen added, “it gets really intense; we’re running backwards.”

Interesting.

Do you think Tim is right?
