Looks like she’s going to have to give her crocodile tears to someone who cares!
After Paula Deen‘s appearance on The Today Show apologizing for her use of the n-word and all of the controversy that surrounded it, several retailers have decided to end their professional relationship with the popular celeb cook.
It turns out that Caesars Entertainment, Home Depot, Wal-Mart and most recently Target has decided that they no longer want to do business with her.
“We are ending our relationship with Paula Deen Enterprises and we will not place new orders beyond those already committed,” a Wal-Mart spokesperson said. “We will work with suppliers to address existing inventories and agreements.”
Caesars Entertainment also issued a statement:
“While we appreciate Paula’s sincere apologies for statements she made in her past … we have mutually decided that it is in the best interests of both parties to part ways at this time,” said Jan Jones Blackhurst, executive vice president of communications and government affairs for Caesars Entertainment.
A spokesperson for Home Depot confirmed to NBC News that their company will also part ways with Deen.
Moreover, a rep for Target tells TMZ … “We have made a decision to phase out the Paula Deen merchandise in our stores as well as on Target.com. Once the merchandise is sold out, we will not be replenishing inventory.”
Damn, I bet this hurts more than that time someone threw a ham at her face!
