The Food Network gives Paula Deen the ax

Friday, June 21, 2013 - 3:01pm

The Food Network will not renew celebrity chef Paula Deen's contract when it expires at the end of the month, a Food Network spokeswoman, who declined to be identified, told CNN on Friday.

Deen issued an apology video via YouTube on Friday for using a racial slur.

She called the use of racial slurs "hurtful."

The revelation earlier this week came from a deposition related to a lawsuit involving her brother.

In it, Deen was asked if she had ever used the "n-word".

Her response started with, "of course".

Deen's brother is being sued by a former restaurant manager for racial and sexual harrassment.

The video has since been removed from YouTube.

Well that just shows you how people have NO Rights to freedom of speech anymore! I would like to know one person that has never used a racial slur no matter what their race! Let the one without sin cast the first stone! Freakin hypocrites!
