Paula Deen fired by QVC
Paula Deen will no longer appear on QVC the company announced.
Deen has lost almost all her endorsements after she admitted in court that she was a racist.
Deen has been fired by: The Food Network, Walmart, Target, Smithfield Pork Company, Novo Nordisk, Caesars Casino and now QVC. She is still selling a ton of books however, landing at #1 on Amazon this week.
Initially, QVC refused to take a stand — saying they were closely monitoring the situation.
Now, after just about every company connected to Deen jumped ship … QVC has sheepishly made its move … announcing Paula will not appear on any upcoming broadcasts … for now.
In fact, the head of QVC released a statement saying, “Some of you may wonder whether this is a ‘forever’ decision – whether we are simply ending our association with Paula. We don’t think that’s how relationships work. People deserve second chances. And we always strive to do the right thing.” One question: Huh?
For her part, Paula released her own statement regarding the QVC split, saying, “As you know, I have some important things to work on right now, both personally and professionally. And so we’ve agreed that it’s best for me to step back from QVC and focus on setting things right.”

Lols.....ok this is kind of sad now. I blame Paula's brother Bubba for getting her in all this shit. His stupidity with his employees got her into this crap. That's why Paula can't trust her family completely when it comes to running any of her businesses. She should of checked on them every so often. Oh well too late now. BLAME BUBBA PAULA! IT'S ALL BUBBAS FAULT FOR SCREWING UP YOUR EMPIRE!
SMH, QVC, really??? People need to get real & stop w/ the double standards! People are trying to hang #PaulaDeen, but yet everyday are glorifying the same disrespectful terms & suggestions that are in music lyrics or just everyday conversations (whether you be whatever race). I am SO tired of the excuse "as long as it's among black people' or people of the same race, etc., SMH! It is UNACCEPTABLE period. NOW PEOPLE WANT TO HANG HER OVER IT...ARE U SERIOUS! I BELIEVE HER APOLOGY WAS HEART-FELT & she has my total #SUPPORT. This has nothing to do w/ me being 'a white girl' in the eyes of so many of my African American counterparts either! This is from an African American WOMAN that is sick of ALL these double standards floating around across the darn board! (ie., Salaries, Race Relations, Politics, Religion, Etc.) #GetReal #ForgivePaulaDeen #PracticeEquality I am reposting my opinions on this b/c I am beyond fed up w/ the ignorance and lack of self-inventory everyone seems to have the ability to practice! #JudgeYeNot
@Linda Morris She represents a lot of corporations, it's not the same as being a rapper. If companies choose to drop her that's their choice & I support them wholeheartedly for it.
