The founder and CEO of Papa John’s pizza chain is in hot water after using the N-word during a conversation on a conference call.
John Schnatter confirmed to Forbes magazine that the incident did take place back in May during a discussion with his marketing agency, Laundry Service. Some readers may recall that Schnatter has been fighting bad press since publicly criticizing the NFL player protests last season. After a 25% drop in sales, the pizza president was forced to engage Laundry Service to help deal with public relations.
