When The Checks Stop Coming In: Paula “Fat Azz” Deen Loses Smithfield Endorsement Deal

Paula Deen is having the worst week ever.

Paula Deen Loses Another Endorsement

This sloppy white beyotch could have saved herself by at least trying to give an sincere apology on camera and by not giving that dumbazz excuse. It doesn’t matter if you’re from the south and old. Now this beyotch is paying the piper.

According to People

Paula Deen’s racial slur scandal is costing her an endorsement deal with Smithfield, the pork company that sold a ham with her name and face on it.

“Smithfield condemns the use of offensive and discriminatory language and behavior of any kind,” Smithfield says in a statement. “Therefore, we are terminating our partnership with Paula Deen. Smithfield is determined to be an ethical food industry leader and it is important that our values and those of our spokespeople are properly aligned.”

Deen’s deal with Smithfield was announced in September 2006.

This is the latest blow to Deen, who was dropped from the Food Network on Friday after 11 years as one of the channel’s biggest stars. The business deals are falling under scrutiny following the uproar over her admitted use of the N-word in the past.

Deen made the admission during a sworn deposition in connection with a discrimination lawsuit brought by a former employee who says she was in a hostile work environment filled with innuendo and racial slurs. Deen has apologized for the remarks.

“Smithfield was a key deal for her empire,” Allen Salkin, author of the upcoming book From Scratch: Inside the Food Network, tells PEOPLE. “In addition to paying her handsomely as an endorser, the ham company helped her charitable image by delivering truckloads of meat to food banks in her name.”

Deen was hit in the head by a Smithfield ham at one of those charity events in 2009.

Paula needs to fire her publicity team asap. That video was sad.
