On Friday afternoon, Schnatter, in an interview on WHAS, a Louisville radio station, said he was pressured to use the N-word during the conference call.
“The agency was promoting that vocabulary … They pushed me. And it upset me,” he told host Terry Meiners.
“It’s caused a lot of grief for my community, for my university,” Schnatter noted. “My employees are distraught, they’re crushed, and it’s all because I was sloppy and I wasn’t as sensitive. It’s the same mistake I made on the NFL comments.”
The executive caught flak in January when he said Papa John’s, a longtime NFL sponsor, saw its sales get dinged because of the league’s players’ national anthem kneeling protest.
Cool story bro.
You know I have lived my life surrounded by racists, including my own father, and I never used the “N” word due to peer pressure.
Wrong is wrong, and an adult male should know better.
You know, unless they are at heart a racist themselves.
Fuck this guy, and fuck Papa John’s pizza.
Which I now refer to as White Supremacist pizza.
