Paula DeenCaesars Entertainment is one of the many sponsors to drop Paula Deen this month after her racial slur debacle was unveiled.

Smithfield, the Food Network, Target and Walmart have all cut relations with the queen of southern cooking.

On Wednesday, Caesars Entertainment which owns properties all over the country, officially put an end to their affiliation with Deen as well. Currently Paula Deen Enterprise has buffets operating in four Caesars Entertainment casino properties including The Horseshoe Southern Indiana, outside of Louisville; Harrah’s Tunica, near Memphis; Harrah’s Joliet, near Chicago; and Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina.

According to a statement from Caesars Entertainment the current four buffets will be rebranded in the near future months.

“While we appreciate Paula’s sincere apologies for statements she made in her past that she recently disclosed during a deposition given in response to a lawsuit, after thoughtful consideration of their impact, 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.

Every conquered people were exterminated. Not the American Indian. We didn't steal anything you moron. Our technology was superior and we prospered. Do you think if the Europeans not come here in 1969, the Indians would have put a man on the moon , or would have been howling at the moon?

Another disappointing decision by a business more fearful and appreciable to the value the relationship it has with Ms. Deen.

Nothing more to add... Ms. Deen's loyal supporter know she does
not deserve the harsh treatment.
I'm sure many of the celebrities who entertain at Caesar's many properties could not stand up to what Ms. Deen has had to endure.

Shame of weak-need mgt. of Cassar's ajbruno14 gmail.com
