Peyton Manning, Papa John’s Pizza And The NFL-Will The NFL Drop Papa John’s As An NFL Official Sponsor Over Obamacare?
STORY HIGHLIGHTS Minhee Cho’s receipt goes viral online after she posts it on Twitter “just FYI my name isn’t ‘lady chinky eyes,'” Cho tweets “This act goes against our company values,” Papa John’s says Cho wants the controversy “to blow over,” her employer says (CNN) — Papa John’s Pizza fired a cashier at one of its New York restaurants and apologized to an Asian-American customer for a receipt that identified her as “lady chinky eyes.” “We were extremely concerned to learn of the receipt issued in New York,” the company said in a statement posted on its Facebook page Saturday. Minhee Cho, a communications manager at nonprofit investigative journalism group ProPublica, posted a photo of the receipt on her Twitter account Saturday morning and by the afternoon it was picked up by a local newspaper. Along with the receipt, Cho tweeted “just FYI my name isn’t ‘lady chinky eyes.'” The receipt had been viewed online almost 200,000 times by Sunday afternoon, according to the counter on the Twitpic page. Cho did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment, but her boss did. “This blew up far beyond Minhee’s expectations,” ProPublica spokesman Mike Webb said in an e-mail. “She has reporters coming to her apartment, and that’s annoying. So she wants it to blow over and she has nothing more to say.” Cho was a customer Friday night at the Papa John’s on Broadway in Manhattan’s Hamilton Heights neighborhood, according to the receipt. “This act goes against our company values, and we’ve confirmed with the franchisee that this matter was addressed immediately and that the employee is being terminated,” the pizza company said.

What coach would ever preach to his players that they should get out of the way of an oncoming rush and allow a teammate to take the hit rather than stepping up and doing the job that is the players responsibility? How does Peyton Manning fit into this picture? On the day the alliance between the National Football League and Papa Johns was announced, it was also disclosed that Denver quarterback and future Hall-of-Famer, Peyton Manning, had become the owner of 21 Papa Johns locations in the Denver area. Manning additionally serves as a spokesperson for the pizza chainfeatured in a television commercial wherein he encourages CEO John Schnatter to give away two million free pizzas. Note that the cost of the give-away promotion far exceeds the burden of providing the affected employees with health care benefits. Like most football fans, I love Peyton Manning. When he faced his career ending neck surgery, I was rooting hard for him to make it back to the game. And while I have never been a Denver Broncos supporter, I have made it a point this year to tune in to watch almost every Denver game just to add my measure of support for Mannings comeback effort and to see his progress as he works hard to regain the form that has made him one of the all-time greats at the quarterback position. Ive been there for Peyton Manning. Now, I would like to ask Peyton to do something for me. More specifically, I would like Peyton Manning to do something for all the hard working Americans that have been there to support him and the NFL, thereby allowing Peyton to earn a great and well-deserved living.

Fine, outstanding African-American gentleman of the community,” one employee can be heard saying to his co-worker. He then proceeds to sing a made-up song using mainly the N-word. The customer posted the racist Papa John’s voicemail online. In the video, the customer says his pizza cost $15.26, adding that he gave a 21 percent tip. He detailed his shock and disgust in the video’s description: This is highly offensive, derogatory, and ignorant. I am appalled that there were no managers or supervisors (the managers and/ supervisors may even be the ones speaking throughout the recording…who knows) from stopping this kind of conversation in the work place. Everybody has a right to their opinions, however, there is a time and place to express them. As an African-American in this community and also someone who has always tipped their Delivery Drivers 21%+, I am disgusted entirely by this conversation. Instead of focusing on “better ingredients” and “better pizza”, they should prioritize “better integrity” and “better people” on the top of their “to-do list.” John Schnatter, chairman and CEO of Papa John’s, posted his own apology on Facebook Monday. He revealed the two employees involved in the “reprehensible” message were immediately fired, as they “defy both my personal and the company’s values.” “My heartfelt apology goes out to the customer involved, his family, and our community at large,” Schnatter wrote. “I am very sorry that anyone would be exposed to these hurtful and painful words by any person involved in any way with our company.
