Papa John’s Founder John Schnatter Resigns over Insensitive Language

(From BBC News)

Papa John’s founder John Schnatter has stepped down as chairman of the company’s board after apologising for using the N-word in a conference call.

The pizza chain founder used the racial slur in a media training session in May.

Mr Schnatter quit as chief executive last year after criticising the NFL over players’ national anthem protests.

In a statement on Wednesday, the company said it condemned “racism and any insensitive language”.

It later said it had accepted Mr Schnatter’s resignation and that a new chairman would be appointed in the coming weeks.
