Ballantine cancels Paula Deen's upcoming cookbook -- which was already #1 on the Amazon list

I have to admit. This one of all the sponsors surprised me.
Here is a link that contains more information from Publisher's Weekly, including information from Deen's literary agent that she anticipates she'll find a new publisher for the book.
Oh my, the Paula supporters must be beside themselves now. The Facebook pages of all the companies that have severed ties with Paula have been inundated with hate posts swearing not to watch, buy, shop, eat from any company that has kicked their favorite Southern lady.
I mean really, if you refuse to shop at Walmart, Target, Kmart, Sears, Home Depot and you don't live near a big city, where are you going to spend your money? So they all rushed to order Paula's yet-to-be-published book in support and now THAT is cancelled!
Tough week for Paula fans. Tough week.
