Papa John's reportedly considered hiring Kanye West as a co-spokesperson with 'Papa John' before the chain's founder sparked backlash when he used the N-word on a conference call (PZZA)
Business Insider -

Papa John's reportedly considered hiring Kanye West to work with the chain's founder, John Schnatter, earlier this year, according to a letter Schnatter wrote to the company's board. 

Schnatter says he told the ad agency that West couldn't be a Papa John's spokesperson "because he uses the 'N' word in his lyrics." 

Papa John's sales plummeted following a July report that Schnatter used the N-word on a company conference call that was held soon after West was pitched as a spokesperson.
