An Apology Offered

In a YouTube video posted Friday, the TV chef apologized for "the wrong that I've done." "I want to learn and grow from this," she continued. "Inappropriate and hurtful language is totally, totally unacceptable. I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way but I beg you, my children, my team, my fans, my partners, I beg for your forgiveness.” Hours later, the Food Network announced that it will not renew Deen's contract at the end of the month. (Photo: Courtesy Paula Deen via Youtube)
