Paula Deen in more hot water

More companies are dropping Paula Deen's brand after a controversy involving Deen's use of a racial slur. Sears and J.C. Penney are the latest companies to abandon her brand as Deen's multi-million dollar empire crumbles.

Target, Home Depot and QVC dropped her on Thursday.

Now a civil rights activist says some of her employees are considering suing her for discrimination. 

Deen's representatives continue to deny any allegations of discrimination.
