Papa John's name removed from Louisville stadium following n-word controversy

The committee agreed to terminate Schnatter's sublease in the Papa John's office, which he used while serving as the company's chairman. News came out that John Schnatter, CEO of the company, used the n-word during a radio interview and everything has fallen apart for the company.

A special committee of the board of directors met on Sunday to discuss its founder John Schnatter.

The request to stop speaking with the media follows two interviews Schnatter conducted with WHAS and WLKY on Friday, in which he made several provocative assertions about the marketing firm that conducted the conference call training where Schnatter made the comments that were first reported by Forbes.

He says Papa John's will set goals to do better and will work hard to regain the public's trust.

In under a week, John Schnatter has gone from being the face of Papa John's to being its biggest downfall. It took until Friday morning for the pizza chain to remove him from its homepage, but a version of the logo with him in it still appears on other pages of the website.

"Racism and any insensitive language, no matter what the context simply can not - and will not - be tolerated at any level of our company", the letter said. I hurt people's feelings. For now, AMB Sports and Entertainment will be "evaluating the overall relationship" with Papa John's.

He added, "The entire senior management team will also be visiting key locations across the country and hold listening sessions with employees in our stores to talk about what they are seeing and give them a platform to voice their concerns". Eventually, Pizza Hut took over as the new official pizza sponsor, though Papa John's still had agreements with 22 teams at that time.
