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.
