Today's News: Our Take - Pork Company Cuts Ties with Paula Deen
The hits just keep on coming for Paula Deen.
Smithfield, a company that specializes in pork products, is terminating its partnership with the celebrity chef who has a line of hams with them, the company told TMZ.
"Smithfield condemns the use of offensive and discriminatory language and behavior of any kind," the company said in a statement. "Smithfield is determined to be an ethical food industry leader and it is important that our values and those of our spokespeople are properly aligned."
The news follows a leaked deposition in a discrimination lawsuit that revealed Deen's use of racial slurs. On Friday, Food Network announced it was not going to renew Deen's contract and over the weekend QVC said it was reviewing its relationship with Deen and had no immediate plans to have her on the channel.
