    Creepy Papa John’s founder resigns as chairman amid N-word scandal


    Papa John’s founder John Schnatter resigned as the company’s chairman on Wednesday night after fallout over his use of the n-word during a conference call.

    The company released a statement that said the directors had accepted Schnatter’s resignation.

    “Papa John’s will appoint a new Chairman in a couple of weeks,” the statement read.

    Forbes reported earlier on Wednesday that Schnatter used the n-word on a conference call in May.

    The call was specifically designed as a role-playing exercise to prevent future public-relations disasters.

    “Colonel Sanders called blacks n—–s,” Schnatter said, before complaining that Sanders never faced public backlash.
