Put a fork in it.
Paula Deen issued a public video apology on Friday for using a racial slur – but her plea for forgiveness wasn’t enough to save her job.
“Food Network will not renew Paula Deen’s contract when it expires at the end of this month,” a network rep says.
“I want to apologize to everybody for the wrong that I’ve done,” the host said in her video. “I want to learn and grow from this.”
Deen added, “Inappropriate, hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable. I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way, but I beg you, my children, my team, my fans, my partners – I beg for your forgiveness. Please forgive me for the mistakes that I’ve made.”
