Paula Deen Closes "Uncle Bubba" Restaurants

(Savannah, GA) -- Celebrity chef Paula Deen is shutting down the restaurant that nearly left her cooking empire in ruins. Uncle Bubba's Oyster House in Savannah, Georgia was the target of a racially-charged lawsuit. Employees claimed black workers were regularly discriminated against. During depositions Deen used a racial slur, which led to her cooking show being dropped last year. Retailers Walmart and Target also stopped selling Deen products.
