Paula Deen has been fired from The Food Network. The Food Network has decided not to renew her contract following reports of racism and harassment.
In the wake of the controversy surrounding Paula Deen’s admission that she had previously used racial slurs during deposition for a lawsuit, The Food Network has announced that they would not renew the celebrity chef’s contract. “Food Network will not renew Paula Deen’s contract when expires at end of month,” a spokesperson for the network confirmed.
Paula recently pulled out of an appearance on the Today show and decided YouTube would be a better outlet for her apology. After her first apology was deemed not heartfelt enough, Paula uploaded a second apology video (see that above).
