Marlins suspend business relationship with Papa John’s

"Colonel Sanders called blacks n-s", Schnatter reportedly said, complaining that Kentucky Fried Chicken had not faced any backlash over Sanders' statements. During the conference call, Schnatter brushed off his National Football League remarks and complained that KFC owner Colonel Sanders had never received backlash for using the n-word.

He reportedly made additional comments about his life in IN, where, he claimed people used to drag Black folks from trucks until they died.

In the statement, Schnatter said he "condemns racism and any insensitive language, no matter the situation or setting. Simply stated, racism has no place in our society", Schnatter's statement said. A company e-mail sent by CEO Steve Ritchie that was obtained by the business news outlet noted that "racism has no place at Papa John's".

Ironically, the call was meant to be a role-playing exercise for Schnatter, "in an effort to prevent future public-relations snafus", following his disastrous November 2017 comments.

On Thursday, CNBC reported that Schnatter resigned from his chairman duties at the pizza chain.

Schnatter had apologized earlier in the day after Forbes reported that he used the racial slur while participating in a role-playing exercise created to prevent public relations crises.

The apology was prompted by a report in Forbes that described the call, which was with the Laundry Service marketing agency.

According to TMZ, Schnatter also resigned from his position at the University of Louisville Board of Trustees after the NAACP urged him to.

Louisville plays its home games at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, but players are pushing for a name change.

Papa John's stock dropped almost 5 percent by the close of the stock market Wednesday, the lowest it's been in almost two years.

He came under fire in 2012 for saying the Affordable Care Act, the healthcare law better known as Obamacare, would be a "lose-lose" for Papa John's franchisees and employees.
