Horseshoe Southern Indiana cuts ties with Paula Deen Buffet
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Paula Deen Buffet is the latest casualty in the controversy surrounding the celebrity chef.
Officials from Caesars Entertainment say the company will not renew the contract for the buffet at four properties including Horseshoe Indiana.
In a statement, the company says it appreciates the sincere apologies from Deen, but they have mutually agreed to part ways.
Deen has been under fire for admitting in a deposition to using the so-called "N-word" in the past. Since the firestorm erupted, her show was dropped from the Food Network and she has lost lucrative sponsorships, including Smithfield Hams.
All evidence of the Paula Deen Buffet had been removed from the Horseshoe Southern Indiana website by early Wednesday morning.
