Paula Deen fired by Novo Nordisk, makers of diabetes drug Victoza
Paula Deen and diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk have parted ways.
This is the latest endorsement lost for Deen after she admitted she was a racist in court.
TMZ has learned … Paula and diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk have parted ways … at least for now. Deen — who has Type 2 diabetes — was a spokesperson for the company’s campaign, “Diabetes in a New Light.” Paula was singing the virtue of Novo Nordisk’s diabetes drug Victoza, which she takes … she also ironically was promoting “lifestyle changes.”
A Novo Nordisk spokesperson tells TMZ … they have mutually agreed with Paula to part ways for now, “while she takes time to focus her attention where it is needed.”
