Paula Deen Dropped by Walmart, Caesars

Fallout continues amid Deen's racial slur scandal

Paula Deen’s tearful, live apology on “Today” this morning did little to persuade Walmart and Caesars Entertainment from cutting ties with the fallen celeb cook, who admitted to using racial slurs in a recent deposition.

According to Associated Press, mega-company Walmart said it will not place “any new orders beyond what’s already committed” for Deen-branded products, from cookware to baked goods. Caesars also plans to ditch its relationship with Deen, closing the cook’s four restaurants that operate on the company’s casino properties.

Actions from these corporate giants follow Food Network firing Deen last Friday, and a bizarre series of events that included Deen canceling a scheduled “Today” interview slated to address her racial slur controversy, posting and removing apology videos on YouTube, and then rescheduling her interview with Matt Lauer for today.

Deen’s sit down with Lauer can be viewed here, in which she states while crying, “If there’s anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back, if you are out there, please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me. Please, I want to meet you. I is what I is and I’m not changing.”
