NEW YORK (AP) -- Paula Deen’s tearful appearance on the “Today” show didn’t sway Wal-Mart. It’s the latest company to dump her. Wal-Mart says it won’t place “any new orders beyond what’s already committed.” It’s carried the Paula Deen line of products since 2011. Deen has also been dropped by the Food Network and Smithfield Foods. Deen broke down in tears many times during her interview on the Today show. She denied being a racist despite using racial slurs in the past. She said anyone who could say they never said anything they wanted to take back could take a stone and throw it so hard at her head that it killed her.
