  • Papa John's founder resigns as chairman after apologizing for racial slur

A person inside the company with knowledge of the decision said the decision to remove Schnatter as the marketing face of Papa John's was made by top executives and the details and exact timing are still being worked out. Schnatter has resigned from the university's board of trustees.

Schnatter also reflected on his childhood in IN while on the call and said people in the Hoosier State used to kill African Americans by dragging them from the back of vehicles.

Schnatter originally stepped down as Papa John's CEO in December 2017, after claiming that the NFL's handing of player protests contributed to the company's third-quarter earnings slump.

I have stated since my first day on this job that my commitment to the University of Louisville is to make it a great place to learn, a great place to work, and a great place in which to invest. "We feel confident that the local franchisees and their employees share the Astros commitment to diversity and inclusiveness".

The Washington Nationals have severed ties with Papa John's days after founder John Schnatter resigned as chairman of the company's board.

Former UofL athletics director Tom Jurich and John Schnatter posed at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium in 2010.

The University of Louisville's football stadium has a new name. As of Friday afternoon, images of Schnatter appeared to have been removed from the company's website. Fans received discounts on pizza orders when the teams achieved certain pre-set goals during games.

A Papa John's spokesperson confirmed to the BBC that it will erase its founder's image from all advertising.

Schnatter, who was already drowning in bad PR for suggesting past year that National Football League anthem protests were hurting pizza sales, arranged last spring's conference call to strategize ways to avoid bad PR. The conference call with the marketing company was meant to help him return to the public eye.

Schnatter had used the slur during a media training exercise in May, Forbes reported this week.

Even the press release announcing Schnatter's resignation as chairman late Wednesday included a logo featuring Schnatter's likeness.
