Papa John's Pizza: Founder John Schnatter resigns over using the N-Word

John Schnatter, founder of the Papa John's pizza chain, used the N-Word on a conference call with a Marketing firm.


What did he actually say?

"Colonol Sanders called blacks n*ggers...[and never faced a backlash.]"


Note: Words in brackets are a paraphrase but very close to his original statement.

John then goes on to say he grew up in a very racist neighborhood where black people were sometimes captured, tied up, and dragged behind vehicles.


John stated that he intended these comments to demonstrate his antipathy towards racism but it backfired on him.

If you're among your friends and you're talking about racism, perhaps it might be okay to quote something while using the n-word. I don't recommend it. It would not offend me at all, not even a little bit. If you were slighted by a black person and you lashed out in anger and yelled it at the person, I would think less of you, but I would not crucify you. As your friend or pal, once you calmed down, I'd talk to you about it and suggest not using that language even in anger.



Should John have resigned from Papa John's after his comment?


Personally, I think he's gone too far too many times and he should step down to save the empire he built, just like he did. The pizza is good. I had it 3 times last week due to various circumstances. The pizza is great.

The pizza is not great. It's like an alternate Dominoes.

Also lol at having Papa Johns 3 times after the incident. It'd be better if you never had it before though.



That being said, probably don't use that word in any public capacity. Whether you plan to drop a well intentioned n-bomb or not, it never turns out well. You can't say anything anymore, especially not that word. That's probably the top word you can't say.

I'd be interested to see how much it actually effected sales though. I'm sure it didn't stop stoned teens from ordering pizza afterall. I'm not a fan of people losing jobs over words, but it's part of the world now. The guy is ****ing loaded, I'm sure he'll scrape by. Poor Father John. I hope he can afford to feed his family at least adequate ingredients now.

I always knew this guy was a racist, heís a Trump supporter after all.

Never had the pizza, never looked that appealing.

I think it's obvious that he's racist as he is not an idiot. He just can't help himself from saying racist things.


Also, the pizza is good. Get John's Favorite with 2x cheese. Excellent.

Dominos is the best of all the major pizza chains. Best thing Papa Johns has going for it is the dipping sauce for the crust.

I think All American Pizza tastes best for fast pizza "national" chains.

Then Pizza Hut. Then Papa Johns. Then Dominos.

Rob, you are far too pathetic sometimes. Because heís a Trump supporter, that automatically makes him a racist?

Also the N word. Black people says it all the time and itís okay. But a white says it, stop the presses.

As a Black man, that word is meaningless to me. Why? I am not a ******, or Nigga.

Worse yet, according to the left, since I donít feel objectify when that word is use, I am referred to as either uneducated or a House ******.

He proved himself to be a racist, did he not?

Could care less if heís a racist. My point is, saying heís racist because heís a Trump supporter. How stupid and narrow minded can a person be?

Agree, Dominoes is delicious.

I prefer local pizza places, if you ever plan to come to New Jersey at the beach, Mack's Pizza is delicious, as well as Benito's Mexican Pizzeria.

"Could care less if he's a racist."

Therein lies the problem.

How is that a problem?

Does him being a racist negatively affects me and my circle? No!
Does the world stops moving because heís a racist? No!

So pray tell, why should I care about a man Iíve never met, nor never wants to meet.

Itís funny people like you cries wolf, yet turns a blind eye when people from your side call Black people uneducated or House ******* because they dare to think differently. That is the highest form of content. Thinking because I am Black, I must be a Democrat, or cry when some white person says the N word.

Actually, it's if he could NOT care less that there might be a problem.

As phrased, there is a degree of caring he DOES possess, at least at present ...

I haven't had All American Pizza.

I don't like Pizza Hut's crust, it's too spongy. And their pizza seems very greasy.

Schnatter is a racist dick who exploits his labor. Whatever negative impact this has on his business will be his own fault.

That said, I never thought Papa John's pizza was very good, in spite of their hype about using better ingredients than competitors. Like Backfire said, the best thing about them was that they gave away dipping sauce for the crust at no additional cost. I've always favored Domino's Pizza over any other large pizza chains.

Pizza Hut's pizza is greasy and spongy, but the leftover slices are great if you heat them up on a pan/griddle on low heat. The crust crisps up rather nicely.

Papa Johnís has great pizza and dipping sauces.

Pizza Hut isnít that great, but the stuffed pizza rollers are fantastic.

Dominos is bearable, but at the bottom for me.

Iím also a Trump supporter and Iím not racist. I hate everyone equally.

Lol, yes let us talk about problems. Like why you didn't think it was a problem for Rob to essentially imply all Trumpers are racist, but this guy who noted Rob's BS claiming he doesn't care if Papa John's founder was racist captures your attention? Explain that, I'd be interested. I'd like to assume you just didn't see the other nonsense posted.

Wait, I don't quite get it Ė he's being called racist for explaining why he's against racism? What? Because he used a racial term in a specific, historical context?


I'm trying to find context for his comments but most articles seem to be void of any context whatsoever. Anyone got a link to an article that actually explains what happened here? Is there a larger scenario to all of this?
