Morehouse College cuts ties with Papa John's

Add Morehouse College to the growing list of places parting ways with Papa John's.

Just last week, the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United suspended their partnership with the chain.

Morehouse students admit to having spent lots of money at Papa John's, but most applaud the move.

Morehouse said it will spend its money with a restaurant that has standards and values in keeping with Morehouse principals.

It expects to have a new vendor in place by the spring.

Papa John’s founder John Schnatter came under pressure after a media report stated he used a racial slur and graphic descriptions of violence against minorities. He acknowledged using the slur while saying it was in the context of a training exercise.

The company has now evicted Schnatter from its headquarters in Kentucky. It also removed his image from all marketing materials and is requesting he stop making appearances.
