Paula Deen Dropped By Corporation And Restaurants Closed

Via CNN Money reports:

In yet another blow to Paula Deen, Caesars Entertainment Corporation announced Wednesday that it will be ending its relationship with the embattled celebrity chef.

Caesars (CZR, Fortune 500) operates Paula Deen-themed restaurants at four of its casinos: Horseshoe Southern Indiana, Harrah’s Tunica in Mississippi, Harrah’s Joliet in Illinois and Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina.

“While we appreciate Paula’s sincere apologies for statements she made in her past … we have mutually decided that it is in the best interests of both parties to part ways at this time,” said Jan Jones Blackhurst, executive vice president of communications and government affairs for Caesars Entertainment.

Deen’s troubles began when almost two weeks ago when a deposition in a discrimination lawsuit was released in which she admitted using the n-word in the past. Dean has insisted she does not tolerate prejudice, but her apologies have failed to suppress the controversy.

Last week the Food Network said it wouldn’t renew Deen’s contract when it expires at the end of the month. Pork producer Smithfield Foods, with a line of Deen-branded hams, dropped her as a spokeswoman on Monday.

Paula getting dropped like a greased up hot potato! Bye!
