After Caesars Entertainment announced it was cutting ties with Paula Deen, Harrah's Cherokee also announced its own Paula Deen restaurant would change.
Paula Deen's Kitchen opened its doors in 2011 at Harrah's Cherokee Casino, which is one of Caesars Entertainment's brands. On Wednesday, a spokesperson confirmed to FOX Carolina that they would be removing Deen's name from the restaurant - going with a new name, and a new menu.
Paula Deen's Kitchen opened at the western North Carolina casino as part of their $630 million expansion.
Casino spokesperson Ahinawake Littledave said that Deen's name will be removed, the restaurant will be renamed and will have a new menu in the wake of Caesars' decision.
Littledave said no one is losing their job, but they will work with the new restaurant.
The change will happen "within the next couple of weeks," according to the casino.
Caesars Entertainment is not the first company to cut ties with Deen. Her contracts with Smithfield Foods was terminated and the Food Network decided not to renew their contract with the Southern cook after Deen admitted to using a racial slur in the past.
The comments came to light following Deen's deposition in a recent lawsuit.
Deen issued a public apology on YouTube and teared up during an appearance on the "Today" show on Wednesday.
