    WASHINGTON (Circa) -- John Schnatter has resigned after reportedly used the N-word during a Papa John's conference call, Forbes reports.

    In a statement from the company, Papa John's said they've accepted Schnatter's resignation and will appoint a new Chairman of the Board.

    Schnatter, the founder and chairman of Papa John's, was talking to marketing gurus from agency Laundry Service. The agency's duty was to help Schnatter avoid public relations controversies. He was under scrutiny for blaming slow sales at Papa John's on protests during the national anthem before NFL games - the pizza chain was the league's official pizza chain.

    When asked how he would hypothetically prevent himself from being associated with racist groups, Schnatter said “Colonel Sanders called blacks n—–s.” He also described African-Americans being dragged from trucks until they died during his early days in Indiana. His response was intended to show that he is against racism.

    Schnatter confirmed to Forbes that the event happened.

    ”News reports attributing the use of inappropriate and hurtful language to me during a media training session regarding race are true,” he said. “Regardless of the context, I apologize. Simply stated, racism has no place in our society.”

    Laundry Service would go on to end their contract with Papa John's after learning what happened. The marketing service announced this week they were laying off 10 percent of their workforce - some of whom worked through the company's contract with the pizza chain.

    Here is Papa John's full statement on Schnatter's resignation:

    Papa John’s International, Inc. (NASDAQ: PZZA)today announced that the independent directors of the company have accepted the resignation of John H. Schnatter as Chairman of the Board. Olivia Kirtley acts as the company’s Lead Independent Director. Papa John’s will appoint a new Chairman of the Board in the coming weeks.

    He was on his way out after he backed down on the NFL issue last fall.

    'Twas merely a matter of time.They were WAITING for him to screw up.

    He was doomed by Corporate Liberal Agenda who baited and trapped then took his words out of context to fired him

    If he can't define his own defense using his own anti racism explanation using the word "niggers" while quoting documented sources then where was his free speech rights

    I guess they weren't much help in this instance.

    I think this attack was wrong. He was quoting what the KFC owner called blacks.

    Wow. That's just crazy. He founded the company, built it up to what it is, and they force him to give it up over a word. Probably being run by people of color now.

    Ah the PC White world must grovel at the protected class of their societal pets by firing anyone who says anything that sounds like the "nig" word.......

    Even a legit word such as niggardly (meaning cheap)........will put you on the PR firing squad of a corporation.

    So much for White privilege............

    I wonder if the chairman of BET can call a White a cracker.....lol!

    Corporate America gave up their backbone to Jesse Jackson and his ilk long ago and you can't expect them to stand up now. What a tool!
    No wonder they all hate President Trump, he has all his man parts and his backbone.

    It is absolutely clear that America is not a safe space for African-Americans. There is only one good solution to this since African-Americans make America dangerous for all other Americans. Any and all African-Americans who want to fret over being called "niggers" or "negroes" or whatever future determination of a hate crime might be, can all be safely returned to their homeland where they can safely be African-Africans and do whatever they want to themselves. And we can ship over the liberal whites who want to help their darker brothers with free stuff from others.


    Pizza is a european white insult to blacks. If Pappa Johns provided fried chicken and watermelon, we would not be hearing about this. But the need for virtue signalling is growing and the libtards are scouring every place to find some great stand for virtue.

    I refuse to find a word offensive when it is acceptable and perfectly fine for a segment of the population to use the word. That being said, Dominos it is!!!

    He absolutely did nothing wrong or even inappropriate at all. He used the word in quoting Col Sanders, as an example of racism and what not to do.
    Taking the single word out of context is stupid and dishonest.

    Absolutely good point. He could have grown the company much more slowly and wouldn't have ever entered into the shit storm a bunch of politically correct A-holes were just waiting to spring on him.

    Yep, as an illustration of what not to do, and they still burned him for it.

    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
