NEW YORK -- Paula Deen says that anyone who's never sinned should pick up a rock and throw it at her.
The celebrity chef dissolved into tears during a "Today" show interview Wednesday, trying to explain she wasn't a racist despite saying in a legal deposition that she's used racial slurs in the past.

Deen told "Today" host Matt Lauer that if there's anyone in the audience who's never said anything they regretted to "please take up that stone and throw it as hard as they can and kill me."
She urged her fans not to boycott the Food Network, which dropped her last week, but said she wouldn't have fired someone in the same position.
