Amidst allegations of racism, Paula Deen has been unceremoniously fired from the Food Network, according to Mediaite.

Though she apologized earlier today, it seems that Food Network has elected not to renew her contract at the end of the month.

    How about their clogged arteries and diabetes?

    A safe assumption if they are out there saying “I watched Paula’s show every day it was on and made everyone of her recipes, I hate that they fired her”.

    But the original post was an aim at humor.
    You reply was an attempt to take a shot at me that failed miserably ;-)
    Nice try though.

    That having been said why did the cable news ratings comment section get closed?

    Now you also pretend to know that they ate everything they made. :smile:

    Again humor based on her culinary style.
    So what happened in cable news Apple?

    The Food Network is a brand too which represents other celebrity chefs (with wildly varying degrees of cooking abilities). The cooking world will thrive without any of Deen’d diabetes and obesity inducing cuisine like her burger between two doughnuts gastronomical abomination. Chopped by the Food Network is the least of this women’s concerns. She is not being sued for use of the N-word in 1980. There is a lot more incriminating statements made by her in her 2012 deposition. The Food Network is just taking out the (white) trash.

    Although I was away the day it happened, I was able to piece the last hours together by reading comments that were deleted, and reinserting them in their original positions. Thus I have a good idea of what happened, but can’t know what exactly moved Robert to close it (maybe you or some of the other commenters here can enlighten us :wink: ).

    Political correctness rears it’s ugly head yet again. Imagine if all of us could get fired for things we said 30 years ago. I’m sure 90% or more of us would be unemployed.
