  • The Courier Journal flags one document that takes issue with the company's decision to no longer reimburse Schnatter for a portion of the cost of having security at his Anchorage, Ky., mansion.
  • The company's response, per Fox News: "We are not, nor should we be, dependent on one person. Papa John's is 120,000 corporate and franchisee team members around the world. Stakeholders, including customers, franchisees, employees, and investors, have expressed strong support for the actions we have taken to separate our brand from Mr. Schnatter. No matter what John does, he will not be able to distract from the inappropriate comments he made."
