Papa John's to pull founder from marketing

Louisville's Papa John's Cardinal Stadium is now simply Cardinal Stadium.

Schnatter resigned from the U of L Board of Trustees and the board of his company Wednesday after Forbes published a reportthat he had used the n-word during a conference call.

The university has also made a decision to remove Schnatter's name from the Center for Free Enterprise.

Now that he's not the chairman of the board of the company he founded, Schnatter's face is disappearing from all of Papa John's marketing materials.

The princess's friend Julia Samuel was made George's godmother, while Diana's niece Laura Fellowes is one of Charlotte's . They have both battled ill health in recent weeks, with the monarch pulling out of a special service at St.

After Forbes broke the story, Schnatter's name was swiftly removed from Nachand Fieldhouse in Jeffersonville, Ind., and a spokesperson with Papa John's confirmed to Insider Louisville Friday morning that the company is in the process of pulling Schnatter's image from its marketing and advertising.

The deals last through 2040 and include no "morals" clauses that would allow the university to change the stadium's over Schnatter's objection in light of his comments and negative publicity.

"Mr. Schnatter's derogatory and insensitive comments are not at all reflective of the values of our organization", the Marlins said in a statement.

"We understand this comes with certain consequences, and we have examined all of those", Bendapudi said, not clarifying what the consequences could be.

Divers prepare to resume Thai cave rescue
A third rescue operation to bring out the remaining four boys and their football coach from a flooded cave in Thailand has begun. Citing a former SEAL diver with the Thai Navy, the BBC reported that some of the boys were asleep, while others were "groggy".

The Miami Marlins announced a similar plan on Thursday, with the Miami Herald reporting that the team was closing the Papa John's concession stand at its stadium as well as suspending a promotional deal with the brand, which gave customers 50% off pizza the day after the Marlins scored five or more runs.

Bendapudi said during a press conference Friday that she has the support of the board of trustees in making this change.

Bendapudi did not comment on Schnatter's reaction to the stadium being renamed. "News reports attributing the use of inappropriate and hurtful language to me during a media training session regarding race are true", he said in a statement released by Papa John's.

The Minnesota Twins have "indefinitely suspended" the global pizza chain from their Minneapolis stadium, Twins communications director Dustin Morse says.

Schnatter was eventually forced to step down as CEO, but he remained chairman of the board and the face of the brand. The pizza chain saw its shares fall as much as 5.9 percent on Wednesday as the reports about Schnatter emerged.

Bendapudi said she wants to separate the company and the 120,000 people it employs from Schnatter.
