Well this story just gets stupider and stupider. Papa John’s pizza is in full stalinist historical revision mode as it rushes to erase every single trace of John Shnatter after he used the “n-word” during sensitivity training.
Now he’s saying that he was PRESSURED to use the word!!
From the NY Post:
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.”
This is very odd. It almost sounds like a racial ambush – I’ve been to these kinds of trainings and there’s a LOT of pressure, especially on white people, to go along with whatever the far-left liberal weirdos are making them do in order to prove they’re not racist.
Was Papa John ambushed??! It doesn’t really matter – he’s been labeled guilty in the public courtroom, and there ain’t no comin’ back from that.
