PAPA JOHN RESIGNS AFTER N-WORD RACISM SHAME BUT KANSAS CITY LOCAL LATE NIGHT PIZZA STAYS WINNING!!!



First, a word about the culture war, common decency and political correctness in relation to the signature Italian food of the United States . . .

CNBC: Papa John's founder John Schnatter resigns as chairman of company's board after apologizing for racial slur

Context and a reminder that stupid talk costs money:

"Papa John's founder John Schnatter's conference call in May came to light after Forbes magazine detailed the incident in an article on Wednesday. The report said Schnatter was on a call with marketing agency Laundry Service when he tried to downplay comments he made about the National Football League and allegedly said, “Colonel Sanders called blacks n-----s."

Schnatter complained that the KFC founder never faced public backlash. The call was a role-playing exercise for Schnatter to prevent future public relations fumbles.

Shares of Papa John's fell by as much as 5.9 percent to a new 12-month low of $47.80 a share in intraday trading Wednesday — erasing $96.2 million in market value. The stock recovered somewhat, closing down 4.8 percent at $48.33 a share."

Meanwhile . . .

HERE ARE THE TKC TOP CHOICES FOR LATE NIGHT KANSAS CITY PIZZA!!!

TKC is trying to cut down on carbs so this list is basically just for late night dreaming:

Hands down, the best late night Kansas City pizza is Joe's By The Slice in Westport

Foodies might disagree but they'll lose a (late night, drunken) debate on the topic . .

Sarpino's is open crazy late in Westport and they're worth a look as well.

KC Kitchen & Pizzeria is a new contender but their late night offerings are also worthy of consideration.

Best part, all of these places are open for a few more hours TONIGHT.

You decide . . .

Schnatter was a smart businessman but his success weakened him. He build the company from the ground up out of his car but obviously wasn't a good salesman on the national level.

Once good choice on there. KC needs more late night pizza options, especially downtown.

I doubt if Papa Johns gets any big names like Peyton manning to advertise for them anymore during NFL season. Once you say the N word for Nigga and you're white they have you for life.

Never mind if nigga's call each other nigga's.

John Schnatter & his ego. Perfect example of someone's inability to get out of their own way.

I'm a 90s relic and I recall Pyramid Pizza in Westport even delivering as late as 2 or 3 in the morning. Are they still around?

@1:42 - Joe's is in the same spot as Pyramid.

Were his other comments on the NFL racial? If not, I can't see losing your job and the company possibly going out of business with thousands losing their job for that one remark. I really get tired of bending over backward for a certain group of people.

I like how TKC included the stock information, the update is that the stock bounced vack and is finished the day up 8%. Don't forget that Schnatter still owns 30 of the compaNY which is worth almost half a billion dollars. He's gonna do fine and probably came out ahead after all of this.
