CNN — The Food Network will not renew celebrity chef Paula Deen's contract when it expires at the end of the month, a Food Network spokeswoman, who declined to be identified, told CNN on Friday.
Deen issued an apology video via YouTube on Friday for using a racial slur.
She called the use of racial slurs "hurtful."
The revelation earlier this week came from a deposition related to a lawsuit involving her brother.
In it, Deen was asked if she had ever used the "n-word".
Her response started with, "of course".
Deen's brother is being sued by a former restaurant manager for racial and sexual harrassment.
The video has since been removed from YouTube.
