I had heard John Schnatter had apologized and stepped down for using a racial slur. I really don’t care, I have never tried their pizza. Papa John’s has just never been part of my life.
After seeing the news fallout, I had to look further. Here is an interview with John Schnatter explaining the situation, and well, it’s not like what the media is portraying.
Mr. Schnatter was on a conference call where the other party used the N word several times and he was tired of hearing it. He used the word to explain that’s not acceptable language and although others have used it, he and his company are against it.
So, I have to wonder, why would he be asked to step down when he was shutting down racism? This makes no sense. Why is the media painting him as racist when he was actively speaking against it?
There appears to be bias here. Does someone have a personal vendetta against John? I’m not exactly sure what the issue is but the take away is look into yourself. And be open to being wrong. Now, I think I will try a little Papa John’s pizza tonight.
Keep truth as your guide!
