University of Louisville drops Papa John's name from stadium after slur

“Regardless of the context I apologize,” Papa John’s founder John Schnatter said Wednesday “Regardless of the context I apologize,” Papa John’s founder John Schnatter said Wednesday

Schnatter resigned late Wednesday and apologized for using the slur, the company said.

During a Papa John's earnings call, Schnatter blamed his company's reduced sales and lowered profit forecast on the NFL's failure to stop players protesting police brutality and racial injustice by taking a knee during the national anthem. The Tampa Bay Rays made a similar move on Thursday, ending a promotion offering fans half-price pizza after a game in which the team scored six or more runs.

John Schnatter (R), founder and chief executive of Papa John's Pizza, arrives at the 2011 American Music Awards in Los Angeles November 20, 2011. Schnatter's hometown of Jefferson, Indiana, already removed his name from a basketball gym and his photo was removed from the city's Wall of Fame.

Schnatter's face was off some materials by Friday, though the pizza chain said there are no plans to change its name.

No word on how Chillal is adapting to the lighter load on his left hand, but life just became easier for him in many ways. The weight of the long nails left Mr Chillal's hand in a permanently fixed position, unable to separate his fingers.


"We are glad that at a national level, Papa John's took swift action to deal with the issue", said the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to ABC15.

Following UofL's example, the University of Kentucky has made a decision to break ties with Papa John's founder John Schnatter. Schnatter, who confirmed accuracy of the report to Forbes, was reportedly complaining about Colonel Sanders having never faced backlash, even though "Colonel Sanders called blacks n--s". Papa John's did not immediately respond to whether the company would keep using it. He owns almost 30 percent of the shares, and remains on the board even after ceding his role as chairman. But Russell Lemken, an assistant professor in the ECU Department of Marketing says Papa Johns will have to change much of their advertising and packaging, which uses Schnatter's picture.

When the news of the call broke this week, shares in the pizza chain plummeted by 5.9 per cent, wiping $96.2million off its market value, and Schnatter announced he would resign as chairman.

Yahoo! Sports reported Major League Baseball has indefinitely suspended its Papa Slam deal, which gave customers a 40 percent discount on Papa John's orders the day after a player hits a Grand Slam. For the first three months of this year, the chain said a key sales figure fell 5.3 percent in North America.
