One large pizza, hold the racism

SANFORD, Fla. — Pizza chain Papa John’s was forced to apologize to a customer after racist comments by an employee were left on his voice mail. A delivery driver accidentally dialed the customer after delivering the pizza, and can be overheard talking to a co-worker: “I guess that’s the only requirement for being a (n-word) in Sanford,” he said. “Yeah. They gave me five bucks there — fine outstanding African-American gentleman of the community.” The customer turned the voice mail into a YouTube video, which had more than 160,000 views as of press time. John Schnatter, CEO of Papa John’s, issued an apology for “the reprehensible language” used by the two former employees. “Their thinking and actions defy both my personal and the company’s values, and everything for which this company stands,” he said.
