Explore Talent writes new article about Paula Deen being fired from Food Network. Pieces from the article are below:
Paula Deen has been fired from the Food Network after a recent racial slur scandal. The Emmy-winning cooking show host of Paula's Home Cooking said under oath in May that she has used the N-word, among other racist remarks, in the past.
Since the deposition, the 66-year-old has issued two public apologies on YouTube, saying: "I want people to understand that my family and I are not the kind of people that the press say that we are. I've spent the best of 24 years to help myself and others. Your color of skin, your religion, your sexual preference does not matter to me. I am here to say that I am so sorry. I was wrong, yes. I've worked hard and I've made some mistakes. But that is no excuse."
However, it seems her bosses at the Food Network are not very forgiving. Us Weekly is reporting that the network released a statement on Friday, June 21st, which said: "Food Network will not renew Paula Deen's contract when it expires at the end of this month."
