Papa Johns Founder Steps Down As It’s Chairman After Use Of N-Word

It’s not ok for anyone to use the word and if they do they should be called out on it.

As a black man, I’m more offended by how gross Papa John’s pizza is. I haven’t eaten it since 2003. Not condoning it at all, but the n-word being spoken doesn’t shock me, bad pizza does.

For anyone giving him a pass on this, don’t argue about rap artists and Democrats being able to use it and then give someone who might recognize Republicans as a safety net, a pass. Wrong is wrong no matter who says it.

Papa John’s founder John Schnatter resigned as the company’s chairman on Wednesday night after fallout over his use of the n-word during a conference call.

The company released a statement that said the directors had accepted Schnatter’s resignation.

“Papa John’s will appoint a new Chairman in a couple of weeks,” the statement read.

Forbes reported earlier on Wednesday that Schnatter used the n-word on a conference call in May.

The call was specifically designed as a role-playing exercise to prevent future public-relations disasters.

“Colonel Sanders called blacks n—–s,” Schnatter said, before complaining that Sanders never faced public backlash.

Well, I guess that won’t go over well with shareholders. For a man who was the face of the company, you would expect he would be a lot more careful with what he says in public, but then again, I guess you can file this under freedom of speech, right?

Just remember, with freedom of speech, along with personal responsibility, there are consequences you will deal with so prepare yourselves.
