WATCH: Paula Deen Finally Reschedules That ‘Let Me Explain My Racism’ Date With Matt Lauer (UPDATED)

After abruptly canceling her TODAY Show appearance (arousing the passive-agressive rage of Matt Lauer and Al Roker) and stumbling over at least three bad video apologies, Matt Lauer announced that on Wednesday, Deen would finally return to the show to explain herself on Wednesday.

“She has told us she will be here this time,” Lauer said this morning, days after she bailed citing some sort of exhaustion in the wake of her controversial racist remarks.

Below, watch the TODAY Show cover the viral support growing for Paula Deen on places like Facebook and outside her restaurants.
