Former CEO of Papa John’s, John Schnatter, has an issue. He said he’d taken the last 20 months to rid his vocabulary and dictionary of the n-word. It takes 30 days to form a habit. However, Schnatter doesn’t seem to have reached his goal after almost two years. Perhaps it’s because he isn’t entirely committed to it.
The public fall of John’s empire began in 2018 when he stepped down from the board. After being outed for using the slur during a training exercise. The irony of it all is, the activity was conducted to prevent future public relations blunders such as this one. On the call, Schnatter was asked how he would distance himself from racist groups, and he responded that Colonel Sanders (KFC) used the n-word and never received backlash.
In a recent interview with One America News, John says that he is “not a racist.”
He went on to say,
“We’ve had three goals for the last 20 months, to get rid of this N-word in my vocabulary and dictionary and everything else, because it’s just not true, figure out how they did this, and get on with my life.”
John did apologize when the incident first occurred. Now, he’s throwing accountability to the wind and blaming his board for painting him as a racist. This struggle is very odd for someone who admits to saying the word and painstakingly working to rid it from their vocabulary simultaneously.
I think John needs a new publicist; this one isn’t working.
The best thing about their pizza is the random pepperoncini that come in the box. Not only is Papa John’s pizza the front runner for most disgusting pizza ever (Don’t debate me), but its founder is a racist. An admitted, then retracted racist, but a racist nonetheless. He probably sprinkled the n-word in everyday conversation and across his nasty a$$ pizzas.
