Food Network has just released a statement anounceing it has fired its celebrity chef Paula Deen in the wake of her a court deposition in which she admitted using the N-word in the past and planning a plantation themed wedding with African American waitstaff.
"Food Network will not renew Paula Deen's contract when it expires at the end of this month", said the network in a statement.
Adding insult to injury, Deen released TWO half-assed video apologies for her "inappropriate, hurtful language," revealed in the deposition that leaked this week.
Deen hosted "Paula's Home Cooking", "Paula's Party", and "Paula's Best Dishes" on Food Network!!!
