TUNICA, Miss. — Paula Deen’s Buffet is now out.  The company that owns the Tunica casino that houses the restaurant says they will rebrand it in the coming months.

Paula Deen has apologized for using racial slurs in the past and says she is not a racist.  Just last week, Ceasar’s Entertainment, which owns Harrah’s, said it would still be business as usual at the restaurant; but now it has released the following statement:

“While we appreciate Paula’s sincere apologies for statements she made in her past that she recently disclosed during a deposition given in response to a lawsuit, after thoughtful consideration of their impact, we have mutually decided that it is in the best interests of both parties to part ways at this time,” said Jan Jones Blackhurst, executive vice president of communications and government affairs for Caesars Entertainment.

Several other companies are also cutting ties with Deen, including The Food Network.
