Walmart Severs Ties With Paula Deen
(CNN) — Walmart is the latest company to sever ties with Paula Deen.
The cooking star has faced a lot of backlash since admitting in a deposition that she used a racial slur in the past.
A spokeswoman for the retail giant said Wednesday, “We are ending our relationship with Paula Deen Enterprises and we will not place new orders beyond those already committed. We will work with suppliers to address existing inventories and agreements,” Walmart spokeswoman Danit Marquardt said.
It is the second blow to Deen’s empire today. This morning, Caesars Entertainment Corporation said it would rebrand its Paula Deen-Themed restaurants.
Deen has since apologized for her past remarks.
