Papa John's has apologized again and trying to find more ways to distance itself from its founder and namesake. As you've no doubt heard by now, Papa John Schnatter resigned from the pizza behemoth after a tape of him saying the n-word on a company call was released, and the chain what to do with the name he left behind ever since, even removing his likeness from all company materials and evicting him from Papa John's headquarters. In an attempt to exert some control over this narrative, Schnatter set up a website devoted to defending himself last week, creating yet more problems for the chain.
On Friday, Papa John's (the company) posted the ad you see below to Twitter. In it, the company apologizes, thanks its customers for their anger, and showcases disappointed tweets from Twitter users. "You expected better from Papa John's," the clip reads. "So did we."
