Louisville announced Wednesday that John Schnatter, the founder and chairman of Papa John’s Pizza, has resigned from the school’s Board of Trustees. “After speaking with John, I’m confident that his comments, while inappropriate, do not reflect his personal beliefs or values,” said Louisville Board of Trustees chairman J. David Grissom in a statement. “No member of the board of trustees condones racism or insensitive language regardless of the setting. The University of Louisville embraces and celebrates diversity and is a supporter of all its students and stakeholders regardless as to their identity. “John has tendered his resignation from the University of Louisville board of trustees effective immediately.
