Yes, you read that headline correctly. Papa John is suing Papa John’s.

BuzzFeed News says, “Papa John’s founder John Schnatter is suing the pizza chain after he resigned as chair for using the n-word on a conference call about how to not seem racist. 

During the call earlier this month, Schnatter referred to the founder of KFC and said that “Colonel Sanders called blacks n—–s,” according to Forbes, which first reported the call and censored the word in its story.

Schnatter confirmed his use of the n-word to BuzzFeed News and apologized, saying, “News reports attributing the use of inappropriate and hurtful language to me during a media training session regarding race are true. Regardless of the context, I apologize. Simply stated, racism has no place in our society.”

Yep! Now, Schnatter has filed suit, “because of the unexplained and heavy-handed way in which the company has treated him.” This story is developing.
