He is being accused not only of dropping the N bomb on a conference call (ironically, the call was about how to handle bad PR) but also told stories of black people being tied to cars and dragged to their deaths when he was a child in Indiana.  
The corporation has come out with a statement that does not deny what was said but that they abhor racism of any kind.  The stock has gone down significantly today on the news.  
Not sure why to be honest.  The pizza tasted like shit before this.  It will be interesting to see how Papa John the man responds.  I do wonder if someone taped this.  Many conference calls can be automatically set up to be taped depending on the service being used. 
The usual caveat applies - we don't know the full story yet. 
Edit - the stock is only down 2.27% which isn't unusual since this is a down day on the market.  I wouldn't eat their pizza because I have always thought it sucked.  Same for Dominos and Pizza Hut.

Didn’t this dirtbag get in trouble for saying something else a year or two ago?

Back in college, I could go over to the Papa John's in campus and get breadsticks, two RCs and garlic sauce for two bucks. Two fucking dollars.

Racist or not, this dude fed my broke ass for a couple of years in college. I'll always owe him.

To be fair, and he is a douche, but this is more of him being an idiot than being a racist. He didn't call anyone the n-word, he basically was talking about how his bashing the NFL backfired some but the company can come back from it and still have him as the face of it, like when Colonel Sanders said the n-word...he didn't say it maliciously, he was pointing to another situation but he needs to realize that here in 2018 even discussing someone else using that word you can't say THAT word, you have to say "n-word" like a 5 year old..

BTW, I have looked all over and I can't find any reference to Colonel Sanders ever using that word...so Papa John isn't just an idiot, he's a liar lol..

All the info is out and he confirmed it keep it up remember according to this board  it is the media that is creating this racism 
http://sportsandwrestling.mywowbb.com/forum3/44076.html
Notice since the info came out and it was confirmed accounts he said it, i notice you never came back into that thread but remember it is the media that allows racism to be an issue in this country.

last year he said the player's kneeling during the national anthem was hurting his business, despite his business increasing in profits

Before that he said providing insurance to his employees would cause him to raise the price of his pizza by a dime despite running an ad where was giving away 2 million pizzas for free

Before that he said he was in no way obligated to share his corporate tax cut savings with his employees despite that being the argument for the tax cuts to begin with

Good bye and good riddance

And paying Payton Manning and JJ Watt more than the insurance would have cost.

The pizza is great... if you have constipation. Used to get that stuff in University all the time until I discovered Franco's was prettymuch the same price minus the risk of food poisoning.

He was quoting somebody else using the word. If you read Huck Finn out loud should you get fired?

That guy is too creepy for me. Glad he got the ax. Seem like all he did was suck Peyton Manning dick. Really sick of seeing him in those Papa John commercials.

Yes, but in the context of "Col Sanders said it, why can't I?.  If he was reading from Huck Finn then I'd be the first to support him but he wasn't
