Paula Deen has been fired from the Food Network after admitting to using racial slurs in the past. The network said they would not be renewing her contract, which expires at the end of this month.
"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," Deen said in a statement. "That would not have been possible without the Food Network. Thank you again. Love and best dishes to all of y'all."
Deen's controversy began earlier this week when comments she made during a sworn deposition last month were filed in the U.S. District Court. She made two public apologies after the comments were revealed, to a less than positive public reaction.
