Paula Deen is once again in the hot seat over some possible racist remarks, and after recently ditching an appearance on the Today Show, the The Who Do You Think You Are alum is in hot water again. This time, Deen has been dropped from Food Network, and it’s safe to say that her fans are not the least bit happy about it!
After all the recent controversy surrounding Paula Deen, the southern belle known for her fatty yet delicious recipes will not be returning to Food Network once her contract is up. It’s not by Deen’s choice though, as Food Network issued the statement a few days ago, revealing that they would be dropping Paula at the end of the month when her contract is up.
Paula Deen, who admitted to using racial slurs, went down with class as usual. According to People Magazine, Paula Deen issued the following statement about her departure: “I have had the pleasure of being allowed into so many homes across the country and meeting people who have shared with me the most touching and personal stories. This would not have been possible without the Food Network. Thank you again. Love and best dishes to all of ya’ll.”
Paula Deen’s fans have not been so gracious, however. Since learning the news of Deen’s departure from the Network, angry fans from all over the country have been bombarding Food Network with hate messages. Many of those very same fans are promising that they will never tune into Food Network again.
Paula Deen has been a staple on the Food Network for over 10 years. While we definitely do not condone racial slurs, we highly doubt Deen is the first chef on their network to ever do so.
What do you think about Paula Deen using racial slurs? Do you think Food Network was too hard on her by firing her? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it. Sound off in the comments section below!
