Orioles suspend Papa John's 'Five Runs or More' promotion after founder's resignation
The Minnesota Twins have "indefinitely suspended" the global pizza chain from their Minneapolis stadium, Twins communications director Dustin Morse says.
Schnatter blamedPapa John's disappointing sales last fall on protests by NFL players during the national anthem, causing a backlash and leading to his resignation as company CEO in January.
Still, Hollingsworth said he doesn't think the latest Schnatter incident will hurt Papa John's over the long run because people often have short memories. The university's president said the school will evaluate the naming arrangement for Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, but noted that the matter involved contractual agreements, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. Several Major League Baseball teams (Marlins, Rays and Orioles) also suspended Thursday promotions centered around the Papa John's brand.
Earlier this week, Schnatter used the n-word in a conference call orchestrated by a PR company created to prevent future PR screw-ups. He apologized to her, adding that he didn't want to be a "distraction", she said.
Papa John's plans to pull founder John Schnatter's image from marketing materials following reports he used a racial slur.
The Houston Astros didn't announce any direct plans to continue or suspend its relationship with Papa John's, but gave a similar statement, expressing that the team was "incredibly disappointed with the statements made by Papa John's founder John Schnatter", while also saying that they feel "confident that the local franchisees and their employees share the Astros' commitment to diversity and inclusiveness".
Laundry Service cut ties with Papa John's shortly after. Schnatter subsequently issued a statement acknowledging the use of "inappropriate and hurtful" language. Take, for example, one from the summer of 2016, when Schnatter's usual red Papa John's shirt was replaced with a "Ghostbusters" jumpsuit in a 30-second TV spot and on a movie-themed pizza box.
Papa John's is the world's third-largest pizza chain, with more than 350 outlets in the United Kingdom and 4,900 restaurants worldwide.
