Et tu, Caesars?

The casino company just announced it will be KILLING its professional relationship with Paula Deen -- and will close all 4 of her restaurants that operate on its properties.

FYI -- Deen has restaurants in Harrah's Tunica near Memphis, Harrah's Joliet near Chicago, Harrah's Cherokee in North Carolina ... and a buffet at Horseshoe Southern Indiana.

But fear not hungry gamblers, Caesars says it intends to rebrand Paula's restaurants and reopen them in a couple of months.

Caesars says the move is in the company's "best interest" following the whole N-word scandal.

This is what happens when you say you aren't going to change and see nothing wrong with plantation style weddings, jewish jokes, your brother sexually harassing the female wait staff, saying the n-word and such. It's her life and she can live it how she pleases and all the millions she has probably doesn't phase her at this point but in business these companies can't afford to be associated with her. It's all about money. These companies have no moral compass just a monetary one and if they see she is hurting the bottom line she will get dropped. Freedom of speech gives you just that the freedom to say what you want but it doesn't protect you against the consequences of said words. SMDH she should have just paid that white woman who filed this law suit in the beginning and gone away until this blew over. Instead she's constantly in the news digging a bigger hole for herself. I don't feel sorry for someone who causes their own demise.

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving person. Guess Paula is getting her Just Dessert, if you will.

Paula Deen wanted to have a "plantation wedding" that had "little ni***ger.s walking around in tuxedo's". But she was sad she couldn't because the public would misconstrue her intentions. She hid her Diabetes for years from the public knowing she wouldn't be able to cook like she did if that information came out. What a hag. DESERVED!!!

I think all these companies knew of her feelings on race and are now trying to reduce their exposure.

Aaron Hernandez has been arrested for murder yet the Paula Deen story continues to have more headlines. When are people going to stop playing victim??? This happened a couple of decades ago and there are some individuals who are taking the opportunity to dwell on it. She's been honest, fired, and apologetic. We know, we know....the n word is bad for anyone other than blacks to say. Geez, people, move on!!!

OH well. I don't know why they are doing this, because I respect her honesty. The whites that smile in black people faces are the ones u got to look out for. The ones that try to be hip like blacks and copy are the real racist ones. This white dude I know who grew up around blacks told me this and I respect him, because he didn't try to fit in with blacks and act like wigger.

Paula it is only going to get worse Wal Mart will dump you and than you will have nothing. Was this Million dollar Lawsuit worth the Multi Millions you are losing from sponsors and endorsements.
