During a recent deposition Paula Deen admitted to using the 'N-Word' in 1986. So how exactly did something from that far back come around to bite her and kill her over 10 year run with The Food Network?
Well look no further than her apology video which was severely edited and insincere it seems as though she's reading from a script.
This video has been taken down and replaced with a much more heartfelt apology.
Unfortunately for Ms. Deen the damage had been done and this PR nightmare combined with her being a "No Show" for The Today Show led The Food Network to decide not to renew her contract.
She was scheduled to appear on The Today Show to discuss this whole ordeal with Matt Lauer, but instead Today's twitter account tweeted the following:
Deen claimed exhaustion as the reason she couldn't make it.
