(Newser) – Her tears on Today weren't enough to sway Walmart: The nation's biggest retailer said today it is severing ties with her company, reports the Eater blog. Walmart sold Deen's cookware, some food products, and even her style of eyeglasses, but it won't place new orders once the current stuff runs out. Deen's n-word flap has now cost her business with the Food Network, Smithfield Foods, and Caesars restaurants. Target, meanwhile, is "evaluating the situation," reports AP.
