Caesars Entertainment (CZR) has become the most recent company to sever ties with Paula Deen, after Deen's less than successful belated interview with Matt Lauer on this morning's Today Show. Caesars will close and/or rebrand its four Paula Deen buffets at properties in Illinois, Indiana, North Carolina and Tennessee. Food Network was the first to distance itself from Deen after racial insensitivity surfaced (previous), followed by Smithfield Foods (SFD) on Monday.
