Papa John Founder Drops ‘N-Word’ in Talk About National Anthem Protests, Immediately Regrets It

Published

on

John Schnatter, founder and face of Papa John’s pizza has officially resigned from the company as of Wednesday after controversial remarks he made during a conference call over the NFL national anthem protests.

Schnatter was on the phone with fellow Papa John’s executives and a marketing company called Laundry Services. The reason for the call was to role-play certain situations to help Schnatter avoid public-relations issues. Ironically, this conversation actually produced the very thing it was supposed to prevent.

During the call, the marketing group asked how Schnatter planned on distancing himself from racist online groups. “Colonel Sanders called blacks n*****s,” he responded, adding that Sanders didn’t face backlash from the public.

“Schnatter also reflected on his early life in Indiana, where, he said, people used to drag African-Americans from trucks until they died,” says the Forbes report. The comments were “intended” to express Schnatter’s “antipathy to racism” but, according to a source familiar with the matter, some on the call were offended by the remarks.

Laundry Service soon terminated its contract with Papa John’s.

“News reports attributing the use of inappropriate and hurtful language to me during a media training session regarding race are true,” wrote Schnatter in an email to Forbes. “Regardless of the context, I apologize. Simply stated, racism has no place in our society.”

“Papa John’s condemns racism and any insensitive language, no matter the situation or setting. Our company was built on a foundation of mutual respect and acceptance. One of our core company values is People Are Priority Always (P.A.P.A.) and we are committed to maintaining a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace for all of our corporate and franchise employees,” says the statement, according to Fox News.

The ‘N-word’ is absolutely a disgusting derogatory word that should not, in any way, shape, or form, be used by ANYONE, especially given that the Word of God commands us to love our neighbor and treat them with respect.

Calling them derogatory names like this one is actually a violation of the Sixth Commandment, because in a spiritual sense, it murders a person’s soul, making them feel less than the image bearer of God they are. It’s deplorable and shouldn’t be used.

However, in this case, it seems everything has been blown out of proportion. It doesn’t appear, and this might be wrong, that he was intending to use an actual racial slur, but trying to poorly illustrate a point. Then again, maybe he is racist, we can’t know the intent of his heart.

Regardless, there seems like more to this than what we’re hearing. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see if any more information becomes available.

BOMBS AWAY! Trump Brutally Mocks Rashida Tlaib Like Never Before, & It’s Can’t Miss

DDAAAAANNNGGG!!

In case you missed the news regarding Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, AOC, and Israel, President Trump has graciously decided to sum most of it up. He went after Tlaib pretty hard. Here’s why… Israel was very respectful & nice to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, allowing her permission to visit her “grandmother.” As soon as she was granted permission, she grandstanded & loudly proclaimed she would not visit Israel. Could this possibly have been a setup? Israel acted appropriately! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1162490843619635201?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162490843619635201&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Flol-trump-calls-out-rashida-tlaib-on-twitter%2F Rep. Tlaib wrote a letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother. Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1162493654432460801?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162493654432460801&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Flol-trump-calls-out-rashida-tlaib-on-twitter%2F Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party. Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1162495014037049346?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162495014037049346&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Flol-trump-calls-out-rashida-tlaib-on-twitter%2F Trump told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to let the radical freshman Democrats into the country. He listened. It’s official: Israel will bar Congresswomen @RashidaTlaib and @IlhanMN from entering Israel due to “suspected provocations and promotion of BDS” at this time the final decision is been drafted and passed for comments before a press release. https://twitter.com/danawt/status/1161952978904985601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1161952978904985601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Freport-congresswomen-ilhan-omar-and-rashida-tlaib-will-be-banned-from-entering-israel%2F From New York Post: Israel on Thursday barred Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the Jewish state, citing their support for a Palestinian-led boycott movement — a decision that unleashed a torrent of condemnation by Democratic congressional lawmakers. “The decision has been made, the decision is not to allow them to enter,” Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely told Israel’s Reshet Bet Radio. Netanyahu’s words: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: No country in the world respects America and the American Congress more than the State of Israel. As a free and vibrant democracy, Israel is…

REPORT: Not Long Before Epstein’s Arrest, He Rush-Ordered $100,000 Cement Mixer to Private Island

Hmm…Interesting, to say the LEAST!

You know when you call a business and ask them to deliver a cement mixer to your private island? Oh, have you never been in Jeffrey Epstein’s shoes? Now that a medical examiner has “confirmed” that the registered sex offender committed suicide, new information has just been released about what happened in the lead-up to his arrest. From Daily Wire: Convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein reportedly had a $100,000 cement truck rushed to his mansion in the Virgin Islands late last year, just days before a bombshell report was published by the Miami Herald which ultimately led to his arrest. Epstein “got the Carmix 5.5 XL self-loading concrete mixer delivered to Little St. James on November 7 last year,” the Daily Mail reported. “Epstein was in such a hurry that he paid for the machine up front so it would arrive sooner — even though it meant being responsible if it got damaged in transit.” The timeline of events is important here, especially when taking into consideration other items that Epstein shipped to his other residences at times when he was facing legal troubles. Who are we kidding? Epstein was probably trying to bury some evidence, right? RIGHT!? WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPMp9edgAeg That Jeffrey Epstein could commit suicide after being on suicide watch defies belief. There are many powerful men who wanted him dead, and their secrets to die with him. Epstein epitomized the sickness in the souls of so many men. #ToxicMasculinity https://twitter.com/tonyschwartz/status/1160188139941572608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188139941572608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F I have no idea how Epstein committed suicide while under suicide watch. There needs to be a thorough investigation. More importantly, I’m saddened for all the people who will be denied answers, explanations, and justice. https://twitter.com/marclamonthill/status/1160188503780671491?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188503780671491&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F BREAKING: Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide ends the criminal case against him because no one else was charged in the indictment…
