Papa John’s founder used the n-word on a conference call

If you haven’t already, it’s probably time to reconsider your trash pizza alliance: According to a report from Forbes, John Schnatter, the founder and former CEO of Papa John’s, used the n-word during a conference call in May.
The call, which was between Schnatter and executives from the marketing agency Laundry Service, was reportedly a role-playing session aimed at preventing future Schnatter-related PR disasters. (Remember when he blamed bad sales on peaceful NFL protests? What a guy.) 
That initiative was not a success, to say the least.

Per Forbes, Schnatter responded to a question about distancing himself from racist trolls by pointing out that “Colonel Sanders [of Kentucky Fried Chicken] called blacks n——-s.” Later in the call, he brought up his childhood in Indiana, where, he said, “people used to drag African-Americans from trucks until they died.” Read more…More about Papa John S, Culture, Web Culture, and Discrimination
