Paula Deen fans strike back: Supporters vent outrage at Food Network for dumping star

The heat over Deen’s remarks hasn’t been quite as intense in Savannah, where her success over the past decade has helped raise the coastal Georgia city’s profile as a tourist magnet.

The head of Visit Savannah, the city’s tourism bureau, weighed in on Deen’s plight Saturday on Twitter.

“OK, I’ll do it: what @Paula-Deen did was wrong,” Joe Marinelli, Visit Savannah’s president, tweeted. “But she’s part of our @Savannah family and I’m here to support her.”
