Food Network Drops Paula Deen After Racist Comments


It was bound to happen, but who knew it would be so soon.

The Food Network has already yanked Paula Deen from their roster after the top grossing star apologized to the world with two videotaped apologies about her unbelievably racial and ancient comments regarding blacks and slavery.

Her conversation with an old employee sounds almost whimsical and reminiscent of a post Civil War era. Deen was describing her desire for her brother to have a ” plantation” style wedding where servers would be all middle aged black men in white tuxedo jackets and black bow ties.

Deen was scheduled to appear on The Today Show on yesterday ( to discuss the allegations), but never showed up, sending the cast a statement from her reps that she was exhausted.

Hours later, she posted a highly edited and insincere apology, only to take it down hours later and re-post a more elongated plea for forgiveness.

With media and whole world dropping their jaws at Deen’s whimsical account of the good ‘ol slavery days, the Food Network later announced that they would not be renewing the southern chef and restaurant owner’s contract at the end of the month.

Paula Deen is worth $17 million from her combination of TV shows, restaurants, cookbooks, kitchenware, magazines and flavored butters.
