Food Network says it won’t renew Paula Deen’s contract

The Food Network announced today it is dropping Paula Deen – one of the network’s most recognizable figures – following an uproar over her admitted use of a racial epithet for blacks and other racially tinged comments. “Food Network will not renew Paula Deen’s contract when it expires at the end of this month,” the network said in a statement.

The move came as Deen posted — then apparently removed — a video on YouTube in which she apologized for her actions and asked for forgiveness.

    "BAN THE FOOD NETWORK" — When does the healing begin for anyone especialy with errors people have made in the past? Freedom of speech is actually attacked here for everyone!!! Forgiveness is the only answer to stop abuse to anyone black, white, etc… Controversial: Why do blacks use the "N" word (I was raised by a black woman that used this word constantly) WHICH I would never dream of doing? Enough of this old garbage, though, — stop stirring up more controversy. Ban the Food Network for not understanding errors of the past and how cowardly as they could have published something to protect themselves stating how everyone has made mistakes in History and that they were so glad Paula (obviously taught incorrectly) stopped that way of belief and quietly moved on!! Instead they are fueling the fire ~
