Food Network cuts ties with Paula Deen



Published: Fri, June 21, 2013 @ 4:51 p.m.

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — The Food Network says it will not renew the contract of celebrity chef Paula Deen, days after it was revealed she admitted using racial slurs in the past.

The network said in a news release this afternoon that it would not renew Deen's contract when it expires at the end of the month.

Deen has built an empire from her television shows, cookbooks and product endorsements. The Food Network began airing "Paula's Home Cooking" in 2002 and added "Paula's Best Dishes" in 2008.

Deen admitted while being questioned as part of a lawsuit that she had used racial slurs in the past. The network's announcement came just hours after she posted a video online apologizing for her past mistakes.

Are You Kidding Me??? Who hasn't used a racial slur whether it was on purpose or out of ignorance!! You apologize and keep it moving! Let's be more concerned about loving our neighbors and not hurting innocent children and the elderly! Or how about getting the real facts about someone instead of "believing everything you read on the internet"!!"Father, forgive us for we know not what we do"!!!

This country is really,really going to he@#. Soon as you know it, you LOOK at someone wrong it's racist. When will it end.
What about all the rap fools that say the n-word and hating whitey? The bro's at the corner station saying the n-word every other sentence, that's perfectly fine, but God forbid another race uses it, they get fired, disgraced, etc.
It's just gets worse and worse everyday. Might as well just cut all our tongues off so we can't speak. smh at the stupidity in society today.

The new world order mind control, well freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom of expression is still alive in the U.S., she is totally allowed to think and feel the way she wants, regardless of right or wrong. Politically correct is not correct!!!!

this is the most ridiculous turn of events I've ever seen. I would venture to say that the majority of folks over the age of 65 have used the n-word (which is as stupid as saying it) at some point during those dark days during the civil rights movement. everyone deserves a second chance except paula dean I guess. Michael vick slaughters mans' best friends yet he's back in the game making millions. this is just plain WRONG.
