Caesars Entertainment Corporation will close four Paula Deen-themed restaurants after her racist slurs, New York Magazine reported. 

The move to close and rebrand the properties follows the news that Food Network and Smithfield Foods have fired Deen. 

Paula Deen’s Buffet in Tunica, Mississippi, had previously announced they would endeavor to keep their local branch open. 

The celebrity chef has at least a dozen sponsorship-related, co-branded merchandise, and endorsement deals. 

At least one partner, Royal Caribbean Cruises, has announced they will continue working with Deen.
