"Papa" John Schnatter kicked off board, company disowns him, 40% off Papa John's

"Papa" John Schnatter's actions have led the company to pull a quick PR move with 40% off pizzas.
Their "promotional code" (this one should be titled "Public Apology Code") is 40PIZZA. --Boycotts toward the company are futile-- because he stepped down (probably told to by company officials, he was only board chairman, not CEO). He will no longer be used in any marketing materials by the company, his name and image will be removed from logos and Pizza boxes, and he will not be made hireable to any corporate positions. I personally doubt that any of the independent franchises, with the exception of some of those in the south, will want to hire him.
I'm glad to have been able to report on this. -Levi Collinsworth
