Danny Moloshok / Reuters Papa John's founder John Schnatter resigned as chairman of the pizza company's board of directors Wednesday following reports that he had used the n-word during a conference call earlier this year. The resignation came hours after reports, confirmed by BuzzFeed News, that Schnatter had used the n-word during a conference call in May.

The call was to marketing agency Laundry Service, which reportedly "moved to terminate" their contract with Papa Johns after the comments.
