Paula Deen Loses Another Job
Paula Deen’s empire keeps crumbling down. According to the Pioneer Press, Smithfield Foods has dropped her as a spokeswoman.
The firing comes in the wake of revelations that she used racial slurs in the past.
The Food Network will not renew her contract at the end of this month and QVC may not continue selling her cookware and cookbooks.
Sears and Wal-mart also sell Deen’s products and both companies are exploring their next steps. Wal-Mart is expected to have a statement later today (June 24).
Deen cancelled an appearance on the “Today” show on Monday, but will appear Wednesday (June 26) instead.
