Papa John’s Releases Apology Video After Controversy

Posted at 7:45 PM, Aug 24, 2018

(CNBC) – Papa Johns has released a video apologizing after founder John Schnatter was ousted as chairman last month.

On Friday, the beleaguered pizza chain published a video on social media that addressed outrage customers expressed following comments made by Schnatter in November about the National Football League and, more recently, his use of the N-word on a conference call that came to light in July.

“You expected better from Papa John’s,” says the video, which was posted on Facebook and Twitter Friday afternoon. “So did we.”
