The founder of Papa John's is defending his use of a racial slur in a conference call.  John Schnatter  says he was conducting a training when he admittedly used the N word as an example of how not to behave. Schnatter also claims his  marketing agency tried to blackmail him for six-million-dollars before  leaking the call, as reported by WLKY.  Several sports teams are cutting  ties with the company over this recent scandal, meanwhile, executives  at Papa John's are working to re-brand the company's image and  advertisements without Schnatter's face.
