Papa John’s Further Shuns Founder, Evicting Him From Offices

Papa John's name removed from Louisville stadium following n-word controversy

While Schnatter made repeated apologies during the interviews, saying that it was wrong to use the word regardless of context, they only seemed to deepen a controversy that has engulfed the company he founded.

This week, Papa John's was already trying to further publicly distance itself from Schnatter after Forbes reported he used the N-word during a conference call in May.

While Schnatter admitting to using the N-word and apologized hours after the story first published, he suggested in these later interviews that the marketing firm goaded him into using the racial slur, and then tried to extort Papa John's for $6 million by threatening to leak the story to the media.

In under a week, John Schnatter has gone from being the face of Papa John's to being its biggest downfall.

'It's caused a lot of grief for my community, for my university, ' said Schnatter.

"The Seahawks told KIRO 7 they are no longer partnering with Papa John's Pizza".

Though all traces of the Papa John's name will be removed from its buildings, university spokesman John Karman told the Louisville Courier-Journal that there were no plans to stop selling the chain's pizza on campus, including inside the stadium. Not long after he resigned from Louisville's board he resigned as the chairman of the board of the pizza company. Senior management is also planning a road trip, the letter said, where the team will listen to franchise owners and employees' feedback on a path to move forward. The company got a taste of that past year, when Schnatter stepped down as CEO after blaming disappointing pizza sales on the outcry surrounding football players kneeling during the national anthem.

He says Papa John's will set goals to do better and will work hard to regain the public's trust. I know this will take time. Papa John's has more than 5,200 global locations. And I don't want to do business with Roger Goodell, and we've had enough success where we get to pick who we do business with.

In the future, the special committee intends to supervise an external audit and investigation that will be conducted on the company's existing processes, policies, and systems related to diversity and inclusion, supplier and vendor engagement, and company culture.

Last week, Major League Baseball and numerous of the league's teams ended their relationship with Papa John's in the aftermath of the comments.
