Founder of Papa John’s Pizza resigned as chairman of the board

John Schnatter, founder of Papa John’s Pizza resigned as chairman of the board Wednesday.

This comes hours after Schnatter apologized for using racial epithets during a conference call in May.

According to Forbes, ” Schnatter used the N-word during a media training exercise.When asked how he would distance himself from racist groups, Schnatter reportedly complained that Colonel Sanders never faced a backlash for using the word.”

Schnattre also resigned from the University of Louisville board of trustees, effective immediately.

This isn’t the first time he has danced with the bigotry devil. Last year Schnatter stepped down as CEO after he claimed the decreasing sales of Papa John’s Pizza was due to NFL football players kneeling during the national anthem.
