Remember that Papa John’s is the White Supremacists favorite Pizza joint.

Papa John’s founder John Schnatter resigned as chairman of the company Wednesday amid growing backlash over his use of the n-word during a conference call in May.

In a statement late Wednesday night, the company said it had accepted his resignation and that Olivia Kirtley will be the company’s Lead Independent Director. The company said it will also appoint a new chairman in coming weeks.

The resignations comes after Schnatter admitted that he used “inappropriate and hurtful language” while on a conference call in May.

“Regardless of the context, I apologize,” Schnatter said in an email to Forbes, which first reported the remarks Wednesday. “Simply stated, racism has no place in our society.”

According to Forbes, Schnatter made the remark in a call with Papa John’s executives and the marketing agency Laundry Service on how to prevent negative public relations incidents.

When asked how he would keep his distance from online racists, Schnatter said that “Colonel Sanders called blacks n—–s,” and that he never faced criticism for it.

Uhh, so if the guy dressed up like a Southern plantation owner said the word back in the 60’s and 70’s THAT makes it okay?

Schnatter also identified that he grew up in Indiana where they dragged black folks behind their trucked until they were dead, as further justification for his attitude. 

You know I think this really puts a hole in that whole argument that demanding NFL players not take a knee in protest during the national anthem is in no way tied to racism.

Of course it is, and the loudest voices speaking out against their rights to stand up for young blacks killed by police violence are the most obviously racist.

    Would you bet even a quarter that he’s not also a homophobe/anti-gay bigot as well? Have you ever met anyone that was ignorant on race but enlightened on gender? There’s nothing more democratic than prejudice.

    Sacha Baron Cohen character appears to tweet at Sarah Palin following interview complaint

    A message purporting to be from a Sacha Baron Cohen character on his new Showtime series is firing back at Sarah Palin, saying she’s been “hit by a bullshit grenade” and is “bleedin’ fake news.”

    The tweet from “Billy Wayne Ruddick” was posted Thursday, with a note for “Vice President Palin” following her complaints about being misled by Baron Cohen.

    Ruddick is the same name of a character comedian Baron Cohen reportedly plays in his forthcoming show “Who is America?” which premieres on Sunday. Palin, a 2008 vice presidential nominee, says she was duped into participating in an interview for the satirical show after Baron Cohen pretended to be a military veteran.

    In the Twitter message, the fictional character says he was “in the service — not military, but United Parcel.”

      I love the scene in Talladega Nights when he kisses Will Ferrell’s character, who is an unrepentant redneck, and states, “You taste of America”.

      It summed up our retarded country in one 4-word sentence.

      So happy to see he’s poking fun at our patriotic, retarded underbelly, deservedly so. Sometimes it takes an intelligent Briton to expose the idiocracy that oozes around right under our noses.

      Perfect snark comeback! Hey, there’s a new UPS slogan!
      “United Parcel Service. We serve more than Track ever did.”

    Group carves ‘F— Trump’ in Russian into crop circle ahead of UK visit

    An English marketing agency reportedly created a crop circle with an explicit message to President Trump along his helicopter path during his visit to the United Kingdom this week.

    The crop circle features the phrase “F— Trump” in Russian, a knock on Trump’s friendly attitude toward Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as the probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    The owner of the Moat Farm in Stoke Mandeville told the local newspaper, The Bucks Herald, on Tuesday that he was approached because of his land.
    The farm is situated along Trump’s helicopter route from London to Chequers, the newspaper reported.

    “They were specifically looking for one in the flight path that Donald Trump will take when he comes to the UK this week,” the farm’s owner said.

    Marketing agency The Tenth Man reportedly came forward on Thursday to take credit for the prank with the help of artists at Circlemakers.

    “We wanted to do something impactful that would get people talking ahead of Trump’s arrival, and everyone loves a crop circle mystery,” a spokesperson told the newspaper.

    The circle appeared on Sunday after 14 hours of labor and is more than 650 feet wide, according to The Bucks Herald.

    “It’s almost as big as Donald Trump’s ego so we’re pretty confident he’ll see it,” the Tenth Man spokesperson said.

      His last set of 12 against the Guccifer hackers names names.

      Trump asks the Russians for Hillary’s e-mails and the next day the DNC gets hacked.

      The noose it getting tighter. Supposedly some senator asked for opposition dirt on his opponent from the Russians and they gave it to him. I wonder if it’s Rohrbacker?

    OT “During the hearing, Rickman tried to defend himself by saying he was intoxicated. His family also testified and said he had a rough upbringing but was not a “bad person.””

    His face is being taken off all merchandise and advertising.

    Some Kentucky university willl be renaming their stadium. His name will be taken off some other building too.

    I wonder if they’ll go so far as to refer to it as PJ’s like KFC and MIckey D’s.
